According to OS X 10.8's GateKeeper application, Soundflower's app certificate has been revoked. GateKeeper recommends that you refrain from installing Soundflower 1.6.5.

Soundflower is a OS X system extension that allows applications to pass audio to other applications. Soundflower is easy to use, it simply presents itself as an audio device, allowing any audio application to send and receive audio with no other support needed. Soundflower is free, open-source, and runs on Mac Intel and PPC computers.

Example: To send audio from iTunes to Max/MSP, open the System Preferences and select Soundflower more...

SoundFlower is really a useful app, allowing to re-route sound from one application to another, thus allowing you to record any audio played on your computer.
I was about to use it to record a VOIP phone conversation. Too bad it's not compatible with Maverick.
I hope the dev will find the time to fix the issue

Best regards and thanks no matter what, for the great app !!

Avoid installing SoundFlower if you are using Mavericks. SoundFlower version 1.6.6 beta is not compatible with Mavericks.

I just went through three (3) days of my MacPro suddenly crashing and automatically restarting more than a dozen time due to this culprit. It is an extension (kext) that gets loaded into your System's Library folder.

Every Panic Report that I sent to Apple pointed out that SunFlower's extension was the cause, but it took a long phone call with a smart Senior Level tech support at Apple to read the Panic Reports I sent her and interpret what they meant.

She said that there are several Apple discussions identifying SoundFlower as the culprit for crashes in Mavericks. I did not read them, but I take her word for it.

To eliminate SoundFlower, or as she put, "nuke it from orbit," use these commands in Terminal, one after the other, then Restart your Mac:

sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext

sudo rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext


I have had SnapZ Pro installed on my systems for years without problems, but I believe that the version 1.6.6 beta version of SoundFlower, which I recently downloaded and installed as an "upgrade" caused havoc in my Mac Pro due to its inability to play nice in Mavericks.

A separate File Buddy search for "SoundFlower" reveals that the application, its receipt files, its .plist files, and its fellow travelers still reside on my hard drive. So, I will have to remove all traces of the application and its cousins independently of running the SUDO commands, which are the only way to eradicate the extension that will plague you to death from the system's memory.

The certificate for Soundflower has NOT been REVOKED. It EXPIRED. There's a big difference. If you don't understand what the big difference is, you probably shouldn't be allowed around computers. Or cars, small children, or other dangerous objects.

FYI:

With Mavericks, my kernal_task starting using 1.2 GB of memory with Soundflower installed. I did a lot of searching and a number of reliable troubleshooting sites said that Soundflower had found to be a culprit. When when I removed the Soundflower .kext file, my kernal_task immediately dropped to down to 487 MB. I think AudioHijack Pro, or Audacity, might have originally installed it.

Just FYI, if you find your kernal_task mysteriously large, and you have Soundflower installed...it could be the culprit...

Pardon my ignorance, but how did you find out that the kernal was large? My system has slowed down and I have been blaming Mavericks itself, but perhaps SF is causing my system some problems.

Version 1.6.5 is specific to OS X 10.6.+ The alternative versions section of this listing should include this link as well.

Information on the homesite is also incorrect as well for the most recent version of SoundFlower usable on 10.6.+

In other words, go to the https://code.google.com/p/soundflower/downloads/list and download a version appropriate for OSX pre 10.7.+

The homesite for this software is incorrect. See the following instead....

Hmmm. I just installed Audio Hijack Pro because the volume on my MBP is so pitiful. See here: http://www.macyourself.com/2010/03/03/maximum-volume-still-too-quiet-make-macbook-speakers-louder/. This instructs the user to use Soundflower from inside Audio Hijack but I can't figger out how to do it. Help?

Bottom line: Will Soundflower work on 10.9 or not?

When you are still working at installing some software, you are not really in a position to rate it. In the "review" interface, please choose "comment" instead to talk to others here.

I am running OSX 10.8.2 on a MacMini and cannot install SF 1.6.5. When I try to open the DMG, I get a message that this DMG cannot be opened and should be dismounted.

After visiting the developer's website, I figured out that 1.6.5 is not supported by OSX 10.8, and that I'd have to use version 1.6.6 beta. I downloaded and installed that file, and it works OK. I would now revise my rating.

So why not give it some love with a new, higher rating, to cancel out your prior, UNFOUNDED initial rating?

And I hope you have learned to look at the fine print before going on a vendetta against some software. Generally speaking, OS 10.5 stuff doesn't necessarily work on OS 10.8 or even 10.7. Some significant system changes were made going from 10.6 to 10.7.

I changed my review, bbw7. It is good software, but the advisement about which version to use with which operating system ought to be upfront, and not in the fine print. It still says that version. 1.6.5 works with OSX10.5.8 and later.
