Soundflower on GOOGLE??

November 16, 2010 | 8:18 pm

I truly hate the idea of signing up with Google to get one simple question answered about Soundflower. They behave in an amoral fashion that bugs me.

I can’t find a way to monitor Soundflower when I record in Logic 8. When I can hear the input through my USB interface, it lays down no audio. If I switch THAT, I can’t hear the signal. When I set it up as instructed, with Soundflower being the in and out, this is what its done. I have tried several things to no avail. I appreciate the app being there, but I am tired of chasing fixes for fussy ones that simply won’t run more directly. Should I just give up and look elsewhere? What’s the workaround here?

Can’t you route the soundflower channels to your soundcard with the help of Soundflowerbed? This application is normally installed in your Applications’ folder.

Of course, Soundflowerbed is what I am USING. I’m asking for the correct routing, as described above, from someone who has gotten it to work properly.

I went HERE

and HERE

http://www.apple.com/pro/techniques/aggregateaudio/recording.html

followed it all to a T aand… no signal in Logic. If the instructions fail you, what then? They are very simple, so why am I unable to get an audio signal?? I don’t want to give up without exploring it, but the results make no sense here. I can hear the signal through my USB interface, but it isn’t reaching the track I set up in Logic. Suggestions?

I also have problems with Soundflower that seem pretty similar to yours. I have a Presonus Firestudio interface that has a software mixer called Universal Control that is overall pretty disappointing. My goal is to have a microphone go into the Firestudio and to Logic (to record a dry signal) and then into MAX/MSP to process and back into Logic to record the wet signal. Logic will either use Soundflower or the Universal Control driver, but not both. Universal Control won’t rout a DAW output to one of its own inputs. My general hypothesis is that Soundflower won’t work with any Logic/interface combo, as Logic requires that you choose the interface as its audio driver. I hope this insight helps a little, and if anyone knows how to configure the setup I described above, please let me know!
