Have you ever wanted to enable an application to access your soundcard or interact with another application via the soundcard? Soundflower is a free audio system extension that allows apps to pass audio to other applications.
Soundflower emulates the user interface of an audio device but allows any audio application to send plus receive audio with no other assistance needed. It opens as one of 2 audio devices (2ch/16ch). For most people and requirements, the 2-channel device is sufficient.
If you want an application to interact with another application via the soundcard, choose Soundflower as the output device in the first application and Soundflower as the input device within the second application. If an application does not allow you to stipulate audio devices, you can make Soundflower the default input or output device inside the Sound panel in the System Preferences , or using the Audio MIDI Setup utility application that is the only slightly tricky part.
You may hear interference at first when you setup an audio funnel and if so , the developers suggest increasing the buffer size associated with both applications (set within each application). Note that if more than one app is sending its output to the same channel, the audio is going to be mixed.
The useful usages of Soundflower include performing interviews with both voices. So instead of recording an interview with Skype in support of hearing one voice, Soundflower enables you to record both voices for a more professional production. Alternatively, it’s helpful for routing audio from applications such as iTunes and Spotify to other programs and devices.
Note that this download is for OS X 10. 5. 8+. You can also download the OS X 10. four compatible version (Version 1 . 4. 3)..
Soundflower is a remarkably effective and totally free audio routing solution. .
