virtual audio routing

Post by ToryGlenn » Thu May 02, 2019 3:44 pm

Hello, all,

I am wondering if anyone here knows anything about virtual audio routing either in Mac or Windows. I am trying to re-create the settings I had two months ago that allowed me to route the audio output from CubicSDR into WSJT-X (for WSPR reporting). I had it working back in February by creating aggregate devices within my iMac's 'Audio MIDI setup' utility that allowed something like virtual audio. It worked fine, and all was good until I installed an OS update that seems to have either deleted the settings, or pushed them back to 'default', and now I cannot get any of my previous setting to work the way they did.

Does anyone here know anything about 'aggregate' devices in Mac? Or something similar in Windows?

I'd prefer not to have to buy any of those virtual audio programs that are available (some of them are too expensive), and I'd prefer to get this problem fixed with a minimum amount of expense.

Thanks in advance.

Soundflower on Mac is an inter-application sound router, I've been using it for many years and while it has not been updated and is now public domain and a little tricky to install it works really well and is simple to use as it is accessible from the Mac sound control in Preferences and on the menu bar.

I also use it with CubicSDR and WSJT-X. If you happen to use a virtual machine like Fusion on your Mac for running Windows, Soundflower can also pipe from SDRuno in Windows to WSJT-X Mac if you want to.

Rogue Amoeba produce a commercial multi-app audio router for Mac but it's not cheap. I don't have a copy but they are a good company, I use one of their other products. Their router is called Loopback:
