Audio Hijack Pro
Authored by: robtain on Apr 06, '06 08:03:27AM

My suggestion would be to try Audio Hijack Pro. It has a built-in timer function and can be used to send RealPlayer, Windows Media Player or iTunes to specific URL at a given time or on a recurring schedule.

Audio Hijack Pro

If you are an information junkie like me you have to get Audio Hijack Pro. Of course you can record anything that you can hear on your Mac. But you can also record something while the sound is muted from that source without muting the whole Mac audio. And you can record more than one audio source at a time. With enough CPU power you could record an mp3 radio stream, a web based radio stream, a Realplayer stream, and record an audio tape patched in through your microphone input all at the same time, all muted so you can get some work done too.

I (actually my Mac) records a local radio show that is streamed by mp3 and AHP puts a bookmarkable AAC file for each hour in my iTunes folder with the tags set so that I find them in in my smart playlist after I sync my iPod each morning.

I have no affiliation with Rogue Amoeba ( the authors of the software other than I paid for the program and use it daily. Best audio recorder I've ever bought.

Last I looked you can download a fully functioning version that will let you record as long as you want but will put static in the audio after 10 minutes. Very scriptable and great technical support from the company.

Okay, end of plug.

Audio Hijack Pro

I will add that I've used Audio Hijack Pro for over a year now, professionally, to snag audio from various sources for busy university professors. I've found it reliable on both a dual G5 powerhouse and an old G4 733Mhz with 512-768MB RAM [I upgraded RAM recently in that one]. I can confidently recommend it for recording audio on your Mac, because I've learned I can rely on it and can keep promises based on knowing it'll get the job done.

That said, I have never tried scheduling a recording with AHP, because I also own a radioSHARK at home and the only scheduled things I wanted to record unattended have been local radio shows.
