What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing AudioHack for macOS

Mac application AudioHack

TOKYO (MacHouse) – After being sick of writing code for two weeks, I’m finally back on my feet. A new software title that I submitted toMac App Store several minutes ago is called AudioHack.

AudioHack is a desktop application that lets you extract an audio track out of a video file (MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPG…). You can save an audio track as a Core Audio file (.caf) or an MPEG-4 file (.m4a) to your disk.
