Soundflower Support

The Soundflower project is now being hosted at Google Code and all issues and inquiries should be directed there. However, if you are having problems, here are some helpful tips.

Check out the Google Code pages where the Soundflower source is maintained and updated:

http://code.google.com/p/soundflower/

Here you will find links to downloads, version information/change logs, project feeds, the SoundflowerDev Google Group, and more. Please feel free to get involved with the project!

If you are having setup problems, the Soundflower download includes a readme that describes a simple setup which you may find useful.

Soundflower is one of several utilities like this currently available. Please check out these other internal audio routing projects:

http://jackaudio.org/
http://www.rogueamoeba.com/

Also, you may want to look into taking advantage of Mac OS X’s ability to create aggregate devices out of multiple audio devices, which you can read more about here:

If you are having difficulty removing Soundflower, open up a terminal and type:

ls /System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext

if you see–
ls: /System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext: No such file or directory

then soundflower is not on the system! You may need to restart just to make sure all applications do not still think it is loaded.

but if you see–
Contents

then soundflower is still installed.

Please type:
sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext

[ you will have to enter your admin password ]

sometimes the unloading may fail and you need to do the command again one or two times [ type uparrow, return ]

once the unload is successful, then you can blow away soundflower by typing:

sudo rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext

Once again, you will need to restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
