3.2.0
07 October 2019

Capture your Mac's audio in any app.

Overview

Sound Siphon makes your Mac’s audio output available as an audio input device. It allows you to send audio from one application to another, where it can be processed, streamed, or recorded. It's as simple as selecting a microphone in your favorite app. Sound Siphon works with Core Audio to provide this capability to all of your audio apps. As such, it easily integrates into any existing audio-production environment.

Features:
  • Capture all of your Mac's audio
  • Capture specific application audio
  • Independently adjust the levels of each application
  • Capture application audio mixed together as stereo audio
  • Capture discretely with each application's audio in its own channels
  • Mute captured applications while capturing

At first I thought this was just an Audio Hijack ripoff, but I was very wrong. This does at least one thing that no other software I've found has been able to do: It lets me use the built in volume controls to adjust the sound levels of my AudioEngine DAC. Yes, AudioHijack lets me use the DAC as the output, but I can only control the volume levels from within Hijack itself. Now I use Siphon as the output in Hijack and can adjust volume levels without having to use the hardware. And this basic functionality is free, so I can't knock that!

I realized that version 3.0 would not accept my previous version 2.0 serial number. I therefore concluded that it’s a paid upgrade but there is no indication on how to do this. Does this mean that old users have to pay the full price? Thanks.

You’re only as old as you feel. :-)

Well, the developer has just published a plan on how to upgrade previous versions. Therefore please ignore my above-mentioned question in this regard.

I already own Audio Hijack and am pleased with its performance. However, I find Sound Siphon easier to use and it especially benefits from something I always missed in Audio Hijack – “a small footprint” just enough to accommodate all its essentials functions without covering my valuable screen space. I began with “Sound Control” and then upgraded to “Sound Siphon”. The developer offers a generous discount equal to the price you paid for Sound Control when you decide to switch to the more powerful version and a lavish discount if you already own WireTap Pro or WireTap. Sound Siphon functions flawlessly and consumes little memory. I also enjoyed an extraordinary customer support even before deciding to buy the product for which I thank heartily the developer. Great application and a very responsible developer to put it mildly. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI – Verona (Italy)

Although I cannot dispute that AudioHijack does take up an unnecessary amount of screen space, it does have the advantage of allowing the use of AU plugins. That'll cost $10 more than Sound Siphon, but that advantage is worth the price and screen space tradeoff for me. If Sound Siphon let me use the plugins, I'd buy it in a second.

I needed a replacement for Soundflower and didn’t want the expense of Audio HiJack. So this was perfect! It works great. Only drawback is: it’s not for beginners. You need to know what you’re doing. This is intermediate-skill software that is built for purpose.

I wanted to let everyone know something I learned this evening. If you have already purchased Sound Siphon version 1.x, version 2,x is a Free Upgrade. I was trying to find out if I would have to pay an upgrade fee for myself or not because I hadn't found any upgrade pricing, just new licensing pricing. Here is the link on their site to back this information up: http://staticz.com/support/soundsiphon/ This is a great piece of software.

Very well build audio capturing tool. Beside the great looking GUI this tool is incredible powerful and recording any audio happening on your system. But why does it needs to be so expensive?
