The latest Mac operating system, macOS 13 (Ventura), is here and it comes with a lot of video and audio related additions and Claquette supports them from day one. Claquette 4.0 is a free update for existing users and available in the Mac App Store .

Claquette 4.0 takes advantage of the latest audio and video features of macOS Ventura.

The following features are new in Claquette 4.0:

System Audio Recording

The enhancements to macOS Ventura's recording capabilities finally allow us to deliver our most requested feature: system audio recording. When running on macOS 13, Claquette can now record all audio you hear on your Mac. The feature can be toggled on the recording screen by selecting "Record System Audio" in the "Record Audio from" pop-up button. No additional setup or additional audio components are required. Now you can easily record conversations from video conferencing tools like Skype, Slack, or Zoom, or even FaceTime calls when they are accepted on your Mac.

Continuity Camera

Another new feature we're making use of is Continuity Camera. This allows you to use the high-quality camera in your iPhone as an external video input. If your iPhone is in range and connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you can select it in the "Record Video from" pop-up button. When you start a new recording, the camera image from your iPhone will be included as video overlay in the final recording.

Tweakable Recorder Presets

Claquette now offers several options that allow you to adjust the recorder for your use case. We now offer presets that prioritize "Quality", "Performance" or "Size". For example, you can now switch to "Performance" mode when recording a fast game, or to "Quality" mode when preparing a product demo. You can also set custom scaling and framerate options and store them in a user defined recording preset.
