Rogue Amoeba is bursting onto the scene with guns blazing, releasing its first product Audio Hijack, built exclusively for OS X.

What is Audio Hijack? Audio Hijack is extra sugar for all your digital ear candy. It sits in the background, piping audio through your very own set of customized DSP filters. What does that mean for you? It means you can add an equalizer to any Cocoa or Carbon application in OS X, including RealOne, DVD Player and Windows Media Player. It means you can use the Low Pass Filter to increase the audio quality on any internet radio streams. With the included VST Hub, it means you can use professional VST (Virtual Studio Technology) plug-ins in any application.
