Detour lets you control where audio from all your programs is going. Whether you send it to your speakers, your headphones, or mute it all together, you're in charge.

Detour allows you to send audio to different output devices on an application-specific basis. What does that mean exactly? It means you can:

  • Send music from iTunes to your external speakers and keep the annoying beeps and blips of iChat going through your computer's built-in speaker.
  • Mute any application's sounds all together.
  • Change the volume of some applications relative to others. Make your email client's alerts quieter, and you'll more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2 or later

Detour is great if you are a laptop DJ.

My setup is simple, I route quicktime audio through a usb sound card (sound blaster), and iTunes audio through the computers audio out, and can then fade between the two, simple as that.

The price is also great, except I paid for the app one week before they made it free :-|.

Detour is a nice app. Good features all-inclusive. In my experience, it's missing better volume controls (it's a pain to go through the menu for each app, and into the preference pane for the device volumes.

Lastly, and most importantly for everyone's info:

Detour is now discontinued, unsupported, and abandoned by Rogue Amoeba Software.

I am now looking for an alternative application, and I have yet to find something comparable. Anyone have any suggestions?

First off, I love Detour, and have been using it since day one, but this version requires the exclusion of more apps than I've ever encountered. I do not know if this is result of it being designed for the upcoming 10.4.2 or not, but it troublesome for me in 10.4.1.

Detour is awesome, but for some reason it is conflicting with GraphicConverter on my machine (Dual 2.3 G5 running 10.4.1). GraphicConverter bounces and bounces but never finishes launching. Adding GC to Detour's exclude list fixes the problem. YMMV.

A very cool, useful little app. I just wish you could apply a systemwide eq with it.

It would be nice if I didn't have to re-enter my registration information each time I download a new update!

Every app that RAS makes rocks! Hey Rudy, thanks for placing the version number discreetly in the corner. RAS is company that listens--implements--and provides constant improvements. I love 'em.

Rudy,

Thanks...I found it, but I wish that RAS would follow Unsanity's lead and simply have in the corner of the first window plainly in sight. BTW, this is the best version yet and I'm using it to its full extent and loving it!
