I was trying to use this website: https://guitar-tuner.appspot.com

But it wasn't working at all even after I allowed it access to the microphone.

I suspected this may be to do with me having six different "microphones" (input sources—I have both soundflowers, a device for my TV, and a bunch of virtual ones from Loopback)

I thought maybe Safari was using the wrong microphone, so I went to these two sites to check that and neither worked (they didn't even prompt for microphone access):

  • Are you sure Soundflower & Loopback won't fight each other?

  • @Tetsujin yeah I've had both installed now for three months at least without any problem

  • I gave up on Soundflower altogether at about Mavericks, tbh. It got very crashy. I usually route with Audio Hijack, which suits my visual sense. Loopback I have but haven't yet really found a good use for - it kind of has a bunch of 'hidden' setups in the app itself & I'm not sure how you would route one input to a given app with it... that's more an audio hijack job.

  • Some 'demo' routings from Audio Hijack, so you can see what I mean - apple.stackexchange.com/questions/203004/… also apple.stackexchange.com/questions/271164/… and apple.stackexchange.com/questions/274090/…
