Short answer: With your headphones plugged in, go to Preferences > Sound, and check the balance between your L and R channels. Long answer: I read that some people did not hear anything through their headphones and had solved the issue by unchecking the "mute" option under the sound section. Mine was already unchecked. The balance was fine too, but my ...

Max (freeware) can drop stereo to mono - though I'm not certain if it will take .mov as input (never tested it). You might need to convert it to a distinct audio format first.

Yes, so there will be loss of data when doing the USB and Apple conversion. So best one is to use analog. You seem confused over the process here. The analog-to-digital conversion is the important step, and it should be done as soon after the source as possible. The audio in/out port on any laptop is designed for speech over video calls, not music, and ...

Since we are talking here of very risky component of the kernel coming from the disk, the first hypothesis to kill is a corrupted file system. Check your boot partition with Disk Utility. If errors appear, repair it, and reboot. Check for extension problem: Reboot your Mac without extensions: OS X Yosemite: Start up in safe mode If you don't hear the ...

You will be amazed what can collect in the headset socket over the years, hindering its proper functioning. Giving them an occasional good cleaning will keep them running. First, use a tooth pick and try to remove anything that could be stuck in there. Next use a q-tip soaked with alcohol and swipe in there to clean the contacts.

This seems to be a six months old thread, however I just wanted to add a quick if not very elegant workaround to this problem. I'm using Parallels Desktop 10.2.1 on Yosemite 10.10.3 running on Mid-2010 15" MacBook Pro and I seem to be affected by the weird clicking noise, even if the sound in my Mac is muted. The workaround I found is to plug and then ...

try sudo killall coreaudio. You got the words backwards. audiocore was never a thing in any version.

You can record external audio with a breakout cable like this. But for best results, you should use a USB interface. I have this and it works great (and can be battery or USB powered).

Here is my 2 cents worth on that topic. Analog input (3.5mm jack) would go directly to the audio processor on your system and depending on the quality of the processor you will get some level of audio, but not the same as the audio line it self. If you use Audio to USB now you might have additional signal loss due to USB been the converter to serial data ...

The audio ducking controls in iMovie 10 are in the adjustments bar under the sound tab. In the sound tab, there's a slider labeled "Lower volume of other clips" and this slider ranges from around 20% ducking to 100%. More about this in this tutorial video I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EChiImCZbno

I don't have any experience with the specific drivers, but here is how I would attack the problem. I would get a USB drive with a Mac partition I can wipe - it should be 20 GB or so (10 might work as well) and I'd download a clean OS installer from the App Store and install a clean OS onto that test partition. You can use startup disk preference pane to ...

System Preferences builds a preferred list for your audio outputs and inputs based on which ones you pick over others. To work around this you will need to manually select the audio output you would rather use once when the undesired one is available and again when it isn't. This method will work in most (but not all) cases.
