I am looking for a control / app for sound output control which has function that allows me to have selective sound output for any app that plays sound or music.


  • I am playing music in iTunes and I want it use my AirPort Output for the sound. The rest of sound / voice / music from my MacBook can use the internal speak or headset to play it.

  • At the same time, I can play my Spotify on my living room AirPort, my iTunes to my bedroom and watch YouTube on my MacBook.

  • Best I've ever been able to tell, the application has to request a separate audio output device. The only app I've seen that can do it is VLC.

You may be able to do what you want with the Blackhole audio driver if you can stand a little tinkering: https://existential.audio/blackhole

A little more user friendly option is some of the commercial apps from Rogue Amoeba: https://rogueamoeba.com/ Check out Soundsource or Loopback. There is a try before you buy.

  • How would blackhole help? Could you give a little more information?
