SoundSource or any other similar application is not required in ML. Just hold down the Option key while pressing the Speaker icon in the menu bar!!! It's built into ML!!!

I’ve just upgraded to this software from its previous version and can’t therefore write a concrete review for it. It’s simply impossible to evaluate a program after a few hours of usage. However, computer applications are like shoes. They either fit instantly, and you feel comfortable wearing them from the very beginning or you might just break them in for months and end up with a pair of awkward shoes! Having said that, I’m very pleased with the performance of this new version of SoundSource. Compared to the previous version it now has everything I ever dreamt of to organize my audio sources. The interface is intuitive and very well structured. All commands are where they are supposed to be, and this means a lot to me when switching audio sources continuously. The sound is great and contrary to its competitors it’s rock-solid and doesn’t quit unexpectedly every now and then. As I mentioned before, it’s hard to evaluate all its functions in such a short time therefore, trying is believing! Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

After two weeks of intense use I confirm it's ROCK-SOLID. Never crashed on me like similar applications. Have never been so pleased with an audio application. Thanks Rogue Amoeba.

Finally! A menu bar app that lets me not only control and route individual application audio to various outputs, but an app that also lets me use Audio Unit plugins. I've used Audio Hijack for that purpose for years (same developer), but this is a lot handier. There's at least one competitor whom I've asked for years to allow AU plugins, but that never happened. Glad to see this come to fruition here.

Or, select "Show volume in menu bar" in the Sound preference pane. Then Option-Click on that menubar item. You can see all your input and output sources and change them there. It's always compatible, and saves you $10.

True, but it's nice to do this without having to use the keyboard.

Candidly, I would probably use your approach if it weren't for the fact that I already had a license for a Rogue Amoeba product, so it was free to me. If you don't, well, then the built in Apple approach is, as you suggest, quite reliable and also free.
