Can SoundFlower direct audio output to two devices?

April 2, 2009 | 2:24 am

I’m trying to find a way to direct the default/system audio to two sound outputs simultaneously (both the Built-In output and a USB Sound card).

Can SoundFlower do this?

You need to create an aggregate device in "Audio MIDI Setup":
- Select "Open Aggregate Device Editor" from the Audio menu,
- Click on the + button to create there a concatenation of Built-in Audio and your USB device.
Once done, you’ll find your new device listed in the input and output menus.
In Max too!

Okay, I did that, now how I have an aggregate device with 4 output channels. How do I patch channels 1 & 2 over to 3 & 4?

There doesn’t seem to be a way in Audio MIDI Setup…

In Max -> DSP Status -> I/O Mappings
