I would like to know if there is any way to use terminal to list all active applications that are listening to audio devices (built in microphones, usb mics, etc) via terminal. I already know about external programs (OverSight), but I want to know specifically if there is any way for this do be done through the command line. I know that this is possible, because applications similar to OverSight are able to monitor and give real-time information regarding audio usage.

  • I know that this is possible, because applications similar to OverSight are able to monitor and give real-time information regarding audio usage. Would you care to share these programs so we're not duplicating work? Please remember, we're not aware of what you've already tried and where things did/didn't work. Details are key to getting you a useful answer. – Allan Aug 18 '20 at 5:33
