Enjoy cable-free audio routing with Loopback!

Boston, MA - Today, Rogue Amoeba is thrilled to introduce a brand new product: Loopback. Loopback is a tool for enabling powerful audio routing between applications and audio devices on your Mac. In just a few clicks, you can easily pass audio directly between apps.

Through the power of virtual audio devices, complex audio setups that were once difficult or even impossible are now trivial with Loopback. It's like having a high-end studio mixing board right inside your computer, with no physical wires required!

Loopback's virtual audio devices will be instantly familiar to those who've previously used the open-source tool Soundflower, but there's so much more. Loopback will capture audio from just one application, or a whole set of applications and devices, all with just a few clicks to configure. Based on over a decade's worth of rock-solid infrastructure, a reliable, professional-grade tool for passing audio directly between applications is finally here.

Pass audio between applications and devices on the Mac!

Use Cases

Loopback is a breakthrough tool for anyone working with audio on the Mac, from podcasters to gamers, Internet radio hosts to regular folks chatting via Skype. Here are just a few examples of what Loopback can help you do:

Play Audio to All Podcast Guests

Take audio from your physical microphone and combine it with audio sources like iTunes or QuickTime Player. Presto! Your guests on Skype will hear both your voice and your sound effects and musical add-ons.

Create Top-Notch Screencasts

Screen recording tools like QuickTime Player tend to allow you to include either audio from a microphone or all the audio from your system. Neither of these options tends to be ideal. With Loopback's help, those screen recorders can get audio from both the microphone and the application being filmed, so you get just the audio you want.

Combine Multiple Hardware Devices

Audio apps like GarageBand, Logic, and Ableton Live only allow recording from a single audio device at a time. Thankfully, these apps record from many channels. For easy recording in any app, combine multiple input devices into one virtual Loopback device with many channels.

Live Stream a Podcast

Set a simple device (known as a pass-thru) as the output at the end of a chain in Audio Hijack, and then as the input source in Nicecast to live stream your podcast as you record!

Record Gameplay Videos

Making gameplay videos with great audio can be overly difficult. If you want to record both your mic and the game audio while using a game capture device like those made by Elgato, Loopback can assist!

And So Much More

Loopback's powerful audio routing offers amazing control over how and where audio flows on your Mac. We can't wait to hear how users take advantage.
