As of Catalina/Big Sur, the built-in Dictation feature will no longer accept audio from any virtual microphone or system outputted audio. Oddly it often seems to ignore the microphone selected in dictation preferences and just using a different one.
But there's a solution! Just use the Voice Control feature instead of the dictation feature. This happens all ...
Open "QuickTime Player"
Now press SHIFT + COMMAND + N (But first press Cancel if a Finder window should open)
Now select your iPhone as input (Next to the record button) and adjust the volume of QuickTime Audio.
You need first something to capture the input, which can then be routed to an output.
Launch Quicktime Player, elect New Audio Recording & next to the red dot, select your input.
Turn up the volume slider underneath.
This should then route to your outputs, allowing playback. You don't even need to start the recording.
There will be latency, maybe as much ...
The task as asked is in effect "how to sum two inputs to one, stereo to dual mono?" one side being the mic/line etc, the other side being just silence.
If you could persuade QuickTime, or any other recorder to record only mono audio this would be one way. If you need additional music etc that must be in stereo, then somehow you need to persuade the ...
256 kbps AAC files are compressed by transcoding causing further information loss to AirPods when streaming from an Apple Device.
There is no 256 kbps AAC compression to AirPods.
The idea can easily be called "lossless" audio because AAC audio files are not transcoded and then decoded by various Bluetooth ...
You have an audio driver.
Check out the path below to see if you can make progress
Restart the audio service
osascript -e 'do shell script "launchctl kickstart -k system/com.apple.audio.coreaudiod" with administrator privileges'
For if the answer still hasn’t been found:
Go to the clock app
Click “edit” and press on the alarm you want to adjust (not the red button)
“Sound” and click on the song you want to use
As the sound plays, adjust your volume using the volume buttons
This should lower or rise the volume of your alarm without affecting your call ringtone.
Similarly, you can ...
Usually I am using a solution based on FooMonkey's answer:
Open terminal and run brew install cdrdao to install cdrdao on your Mac.
Find your SuperDrive's id with diskutil list. For example, it is /dev/disk2.
Unmount your SuperDrive with sudo diskutil umount /dev/disk2orAnyOtherNumberThatYouFoundInStep3.
Create image with sudo cdrdao read-cd --...
The problem with aggregate devices in macOS is, I think, that the different input microphones will be assigned to different channels. Zoom might pick up only the first channel of the aggregate device rather than mixing all the channels together.
Using a virtual audio device and a mixer software, one could mix the different microphones together into one ...
I needed a keyboard shortcut for changing my sound output -- I liked the simplicity of the AppleScript answers I've seen on the Stack Exchange forums, but I don't like the idea of having to hardcode the output/input device name I want to change. Also I couldn't find an elegant solution for swapping between 3 audio outputs using if-else. Not to mention if ...
Turns out most of the issue is due to mac books having a weak bluetooth chip. In order to free some bandwidth I have used wireless receivers for mouse and keyboard rather than connecting to laptop directly. Now the only device connected to my laptop via Bluetooth are the headphones.
For users of Logitech, the Unifying receiver operates on the frequency ...
Did you try to run the Mac in Safe Mode? Were the results the same?
What about setting up a new user profile (make sure its an admin)? Is the sound still not working with the new user?
If safe mode and a new user are not showing any results that are different from what you currently experience then do the following:
Run Diagnostics Test
Reset the PRAM
Edit: you may find answers here Turning Power Chime Off
Open Terminal, and run the following command:
defaults write com.apple.PowerChime ChimeOnNoHardware -bool true;killall PowerChime
If that didn't work, try:
defaults write com.apple.PowerChime ChimeOnAllHardware -bool false;killall PowerChime
To re-enable it:
defaults write com.apple.PowerChime ...
I basically had the same issue when connecting my ViewSonic VA2265 monitor to my 2018 Mac mini using a HDMI cable. When selecting the VA2265 from the Sound pane of System Preferences, the volume was set to maximum and could not be adjusted. I can adjust the volume by using the controls on the monitor, but this was not desirable. Below is a screen shot.
A bit late to the party but I’ve stumbled on a solution on another StackOverflow website that led me here: http://jsfiddle.net/jib1/7ejwaxkc
It works wonderfully as an audio passthrough. Took me ages to find... phew!
EDIT: Found out the solution isn’t perfect: it’s mono. :(
