Whats the best program(s) for Mac to record live music streaming on the internet? Thanks
Rogue Amoeba makes several programs specifically for that purpose - Piezo, Audio Hijack Pro. Their products are really good.
I use Audio Hijack Pro and recommend it highly.
I'm trying HiJack pro now seems pretty good so far. Thanks for help
Not the best but the easiest:

Just curious as to what you like about it vs something like Wondershare AllMyMusic which also does tagging, removes ads and auto splits?
I have not tried the one you mentioned.
A few years back a friend of mine asked me if I could record a BBC stream for her. I did a search and found Audio Hijack Pro. It worked as advertised so I purchased it.
I paid for Piezo and wish I could get my money back.
Once you find a song on say iTunes radio you want to
record, Piezo make you quit itunes when you launch Piezo
and then go find the station on itunes again and by that
time the song is done. WireTap Studio is the best, its free
for a month, then you pay and its expensive.l
Wow!! I just looked at WireTap Studio and it IS really expensive. Unless your wanting to do a lot of manipulation (effects, time delay, fades, etc) I just can't understand why anyone would pay that much. AllMyMusic and Audio Hijack Pro are 1/3 of that.
If your Mac has an headphone jack and a microphone jack, you can run a short stereo cable from one to the other, and record using Audacity. Doing so will send the sound through a D/A then A/D sequence, but at a decent bit rate, there's no significant signal degradation (via Audacity plot-spectrum function). That's not surprising since both headphone and microphone jacks are designed to handle high quality audio signals.
I use a 'splitter' cable from Radio Shack, so headphone output goes both to my amp and to the Mac's microphone Input.
With this setup any sound the Mac makes will be recorded, including System beeps, notification sounds etc. etc.
