perhaps not entirely a max question but heopfully someone can help.

im wanting to preview soundfiles either on max or another program (usually instant player) on the headphone output of my mac before sending them out through my audio interface. i want this to be done whilst im playing things on max. i cant work out how to send audio to different outputs simultaneously.

my audio interface has 2ins and 2outs…
i was thinking maybe soundflower bed may be helpful.

Hi Paul,

Check out the Aggregate Device Editor in the Audio/Midi setup utility.

You should be able to make a device using your built in audio and your external hardware.

wow, thanks.

i have no idea why/how it works but i created a new aggregate device. now when i choose agregate devise from my dac~ settings, output 1&2 goes to my external devise and outputs 3&4 go to my built-in output.

has been annoying me for a while that.
