Now that the Soundflowerbed app is retired, I haven't been able to record my Mac's system audio :( Following the instructions from mattingalls' Soundflower-2 installation guide, (https://github.com/mattingalls/Soundflower/releases/tag/2.0b2), I rebooted, and then created a Multi-Output Device in Audio MIDI Setup, to be able to listen to the audio through the built-in speakers along with sending it through Soundflower 2CH, But I'm getting a super low audio volume when I try to record through Quicktime 10.4. Even with the volume cranked, there's very little sound in the Quicktime recording, and yes, I did make sure to adjust the volume before switching to the Multi-Output Device in Sys. Prefs.

Here's my setup: Audio MIDI Setup settings Sys. Prefs. Sound settings Quicktime Audio Recording input selection

I'm working on a mid-2012 MacBook Pro Retina, still running Yosemite (oooold, I kno, but I can't update just yet- some of the software I need to use isn't compatible with the latest OS)

Any advice or link to a free Soundflower alternative would be greatly appreciated :)

  • Check out this from a couple of years ago - though it didn't really reach a conclusion. It's been too long since I used sound flower to remember how it was set up - apple.stackexchange.com/questions/241695/… – Tetsujin Sep 22 '18 at 7:05
  • Thanks Tetsujin! I did see that thread, and since the audio clip I was trying to record was only 1min long, I'm able to use the trial version of Rogue Amoeba's Audio Hijack, which limits hi-quality recording to 10minutes before switching to low-quality. So I'm good for now :') AH is a nice program but kinda pricey and has more bells and whistles than I need. I'll have to look into what other folks are using to record their sys audio when I finally upgrade to High Sierra. :) – Splosion Lowbeam Sep 22 '18 at 13:07
