LineIn for Mac2.3.0

10 September 2014

Enables soft audio playthrough from input devices.

What is LineIn for Mac

Note: LineIn is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale, but is still available for download
LineIn enables the soft playthrough of audio from input devices. In simpler terms, you can use LineIn to play sound through a microphone or any other device plugged in to your Sound In port. If you need to input audio from an external device, recreating OS 9's "Play input through output device" option, then LineIn is perfect for you

What's new in LineIn

Version 2.3.0:
  • A long-standing issue with latency has finally been cured
  • Added a menu item for toggling play-thru

Usually I rate it with 5 stars. But now I am afraid that I had to say It is no good. The point is that it isn't working with OS Catalina, I even can't install it on my device. I think I need it to use Audacity (like I did in the past), or maybe do you have an other solution? Kind regards guys!

It looks like their Loopback app can do this - I just used it to route my Line-In to my surround-sound speakers ;-) https://rogueamoeba.com/loopback/

FYI, I use SoundSource from Rogue Amoeba for sound selection and also it has a Line In function. On SoundSource 3 (free to any owners of Rogue Amoeba software) it is called "Open Play-Thru Window" and then you click "Start" to route Line-In to your selected output. I just started a trial of SoundSource 4 (just released) and haven't seen (yet) how to redirect Line-In to Output. But I will find it ;-) Anyway, to get your free SoundSource 3 that includes "Play-Thru", find a Rogue Amoeba license that you bought and go here: https://weblog.rogueamoeba.com/2017/02/14/soundsource-the-sound-control-that-should-be-built-into-macos/

I'm using LineIn it to route audio from my tv (toslink) to my Mac mini to my dac. Is there any way to use my apple remote control to control volume via my Mac mini? Many thanks

I have used this for a very long time now, but unfortunately, with the new iMacs sans audio in port, it doesn't work as well as it used to. I was forced to purchased a USB audio input device and with some fiddling I managed to get it working, but the creeping latency has returned and periodically I need to reset "Play Thru" in order to eliminate increasingly garbled sound. It's not a huge deal, and LineIn mostly works still, but it would be really nice if it was updated again sometime soon.

Help. I have a Mac (Yosemite, 10.10), a Yeti USB mic and the latest version of LineIn. It sounds terrible in my headphones...echo-y, boomy, delayed maybe...perhaps this is the latency issue that was supposedly corrected in this version? Is there anything I can do to fix it? Such a bummer. I was so excited to finally find a way to hear myself through my headphones and apparently I'm not supposed to be having this problem anymore.

I needed some tunes for a party and didn't have a charge cable for my speakers. Two minutes on Google and I find this, plug a phone in through a 3.5mm to a random port on my iMac, mess with the settings on the app and boom, party is back! Cheers guys :D
