Audio Hijack is from the creators of Nicecast, Rogue Amoeba. It's a beautifully simplistic DAW (Digital Audio Workspace) that's designed to make broadcasting, recording, and mixing shows extremely easy on any Mac.

How Audio Hijack Works

Audio Hijack uses blocks that you can drag and drop within the app. For example, you can send audio from your browser by dragging in the "Application" block and connecting it to your browser of choice, e.g. Google Chrome.

Using blocks, you can send your audio to multiple places. For example, you can broadcast to your radio station, record your show, and listen to through your headphones. There's also built-in effects you can sandwich between these blocks to adjust the EQ, balance, ducking, and much more.
