Apologies for simplicity of this question; as I am new to max/MSP; I
can’t seem to alter the output destination of audio in the DSP status
patch. If I use the coreaudio builtin card the options i have are
speakers and headphones (why isnt there a "line out" option?). On my
external FW interface there are no options showing up for output
destination at all, its just blank. Soundflower wont show up as an
output option either! ITs not the hardware as I can route audio where
I like with other software; its obviously just a silly thing I am
missing; please help!

Obviously, you’re using a macintosh.
I have the same behavior, but it’s never been a problem. My laptop only has "Internal Speakers" as an output, but that also sends to the headphone jack.
To use Soundflower, set the *driver* to CoreAudio Soundflower (2ch) or CoreAudio Soundflower (16ch). In other words, the "output destination" has been a non-feature for me; I’ve never used it or needed it, even with dozens of interfaces and setups.
In the words of Digable Planets, "Ignore it, like it’s pork."

In Powerbooks for example there is no line output, only a headphone
output. It just shows what is defined in Coreaudio.

They usually have only one choice, so you don’t have to choose…
(Just ignore and/or test it yourself…)
Normally you just choose a driver and the outputs are numbered. This is
covered in the docs…
Drivers and their settings are covered in the Apple docs…
