How can I keep all other apps the same volume as normal when I am in a FaceTime call? On macOS Monterey

Leaving SIP enabled

1 Answer 1


The best solution for this is to route the audio through a third party app.

I prefer Rogue Amoeba loopback for this need.

  • Never tried it for anything like this, but I wonder if SoundSource [same company] might be a cheaper alternative. As far as I'm aware, both come with free trials to test.

    Yea! @Tetsujin I should try just that on a new build.

  • I have it on an M1 iMac on Monterey, but I'd never thought to check this particular functionality, as we just shut all other sound off when using FT.

  • Oh. It just mutes all audio anyway as soon as you initiate a call. [well, saves me having to shut everything up manually in future;) I'd never tested it before, as I have absolutely no desire to have any other 'noise' going on whilst on a call. This iMac has only one mic/speaker source, built-in. idk what might happen if routing was to another device.
