You need a USB Audio Mixer like this one Presonus Audiobox USB When you use audio software, if you CAN monitor the output, there will be a delay because it has to come in through the mic, record to disk, they play it back. What this device does is take the live audio and send it into two different directions: to your computer for recording to an ...

Just a shot in the dark here, but I am assuming your issue may be that the audio you are inputting is not being replayed as system audio out. I believe you can get garageband to both record and "monitor" (or play your audio back for you through the speakers) at the same time. I just tried and could not get garageband to pick up my mic in my bluetooth ...

I found a suggestion to add a piece of paper between the 2 batteries, and have this paper push slightly against the mouse cover. Worked for me. Many other suggestions found here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2217770?start=90&tstart=0 Also: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6602914?start=15&tstart=0

When the Bluetooth device is connected, press ALT/OPTION and click the Bluetooth icon. When you select the device in the list you will see a Remove option that should stop if from connecting in future.

I faced the same situation and found that my colleague uses Notifyr app (http://www.getnotifyr.com/) which runs with bluetooth connection. I asked him to stop using the app, the problem seems to be solved in these two days.

Here's the solution that worked for me (YMMV): Turn off bluetooth Reboot your mac Put your bluetooth devices in "discoverable" mode Turn bluetooth back on You should be able to see / connect to your devices in System Preferences > Bluetooth now.

Bluetooth and WiFi can interfere. On several devices there are recommendations to turn off Bluetooth while using Wi-Fi (for example, Vaio manuals). I had this problem on my new Macbook Pro after the first few hours of work, once that I started a "heavy " (several hours) transfer from the older laptop - using WiFi. The mouse disconnected every 1-4 minutes. ...

You mention a “6 digit number” but from what I understand about how Bluetooth gamepads pair in Mac OS X it should be a 4 digit PIN. Regardless, you can enter any series of digits from your main system keyboard and it should work. Try something like 0000/000000 or 1234/123456 and it should be able to pair without issue.

IMO - the true fix for this is to get off 2.4 GHz when it's not reliable. I put together a bit of a guide on how to know if you have to spend the $$ to get a better frequency, and the tools/books are about $20 each. Get off 2.4 GHz - use 5 GHz as it's far less susceptible to interferance and channel overlap. If you are on 2.4 - get a tool like WiFi ...

I found that just removing the batteries and cleaning the terminals with a paper towel on both the batteries and the mouse fixed the problem. I think the people who used paper spacers on the sides of the batteries and aluminum spacers on the negative end of the batteries actually just cleaned the terminals by removing and installing the batteries and the ...

I was able to pair a bluetooth serial port via the preferences panel: Apple Menu > System Preferences... > Bluetooth My adapter was discoverable, failed auto-pairing, but I was able to pair with the pin code provided in the online documentation. The system automatically created a serial port: alf@my-mac:~ ls -l /dev/tty.* crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel ...

I am running 10.10.4 on a mid 2010 iMac 27" and wish to let you know that the Microsoft Arc Bluetooth mouse is not even recognised using bluetooth properties, let alone synchronise. There seems to be a lot of forums describing issues with this mouse. Considering I just bought two whilst in the USA (for the iMac and my daughter's Macbook Air) I feel let down. ...

To my knowledge you do not need bluetooth microphones to record a conversation. iPhones have a built-in app called voice memos which, assuming you have a relatively new iPhone, should be able to pick up the conversation fairly well if you just set the iPhone to record and put it in your pocket.

Apparently, Yosemite breaks the support for the PS3 controller. This can be easily seen when looking into /var/log/system.log. When connecting the PS3 controller via USB, you'll see something like: Aug 8 09:08:19 somebody-macbookpro kernel[0]: [IOBluetoothHIDDriver][probe] Couldn't retrieve device properties Aug 8 09:08:19 somebody-macbookpro.local ...

the following is an alternative to the Automator solution posted by webaholic, for those who, like me, find inconvenient having to entering your password again (most likely you'll have just entered it to logon after waking your mac up). First, in Terminal, create a script that reloads the bluetooth subsystem: cat > bt_restart <<END #!/bin/bash ...

There are two versions of AirDrop. The Mac-to-Mac AirDrop that was introduced in Lion works with old Bluetooth modules. The Mac-to-iDevice AirDrop that was introduced in Yosemite only works with newer modules (2012 or later). If you really want to get Mac-to-iDevice AirDrop, you'll need to either upgrade your AirPort card or get a dongle. Continuity ...

its not hardware. I degraded to 8.3 and now it is consistently dropping Bluetooth to both my car and headset. That never happened before. Thanks Apple. Let's. Yosemite degrade was locking system for a couple minutes after it was sleeping.
