Soundflower for Mac

21 July 2017

Allows applications to pass audio to other applications (beta).

What is Soundflower for Mac

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.

Note: This is only the Soundflower kernel extension. The SoundflowerBed app is retired. A new replacement is in the works. In the meantime, you can take your chances with an older version of Soundflowerbed, but you can do a lot with a Multi-Output Aggregate Device.

*Pros and Cons based on honest Users feedback

👍 Pros

  • Free software. Until Loopback was the only util for keyboard volume control of HDMI.
  • Special routing of audio through the system and apps. Very flexible.
  • Ease of use.

👎 Cons

  • Obtuse interface. If you are not an audio pro, forget it. If you are an audio pro, it's still often a matter of luck.
  • Abandoned long ago. No longer works. Difficult to set up. Requires companion Soundflowerbed app to configure.
  • Too many options.

I prefer BlackHole. Simply because Rogue Amoeba don't have there's paws involved. The software they produce are close to viruses,

it is important to take note of the following, "Soundflower is free, open-source, and runs on Mac Intel and PPC computers." It does not work on iOS devices or laptops. If you have upgraded to iOS seek other options. I am looking for an iOS solution for Catalina 10.15.4. If you have found something as an alternative please share. Much Thanks !

I am puzzled at the Pros & Cons as it contains conflicting statements. Pros = “Ease of use” vs Cons = “Obtuse interface” & “Difficult to setup”

I've already installed Soundflower on my Mac, it should have Soundflower icon appear on the icon bar but my screen don't have. Then I've checked install app in Finder>Application, there is no Soundflower app too. But I found Soundflower item in Sound icon (System Preference > Sound). Did I finish the installation or I have to do something else?

Hi: I downloaded Soundflower, so I could transcribe videos that I have on youtube through Google Docs. I set up the Google Docs to rereads typing, and turned the video on, and nothing happened. Any suggestions?
