I am attempting to route my mic audio and system output so both can be heard through Skype. Any ideas?

  • What input are you using? – daviesgeek Aug 18 '11 at 23:29


This is the traditional solution, and it is free. Although I am not sure if it's compatible with Lion.

Once you have it installed, you'll need to get familiar with the Mac OS X system utility, Audio MIDI Setup, in the Utilities folder.

  • Yah I downloaded it a while back, but still it was hard to get all the audio right. But I think I got it. – Logan Aug 18 '11 at 23:44
  • What operating system are you running? Snow Leopard? Lion? – user9290 Aug 18 '11 at 23:58

    Snow Leopard. But I got everything working with SoundFlower and LineIn. What I ended up doing is using LineIn to send my mic input to output to SoundFlower and I set my computers output in System Preferences to SoundFlower. From SoundFlower I set the output to my speakers. And in Skype I set my mic as SoundFlower. – Logan Aug 19 '11 at 2:01

Maybe an aggregated device ? I use it for outputs, but it seems that you can also configure 2 inputs. See this Apple's kb article : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3956
