Soundflower Free Download Mac

19.02.2021

Welcome to our Soundflower installation guide. Installing Soundflower on modern macOS versions can be a little complicated as kernel extensions need now to be given permissions before being loaded for the first time. So the Soundflower installer will error out on macOS High Sierra and Mojave. But this is easy to fix.

macOS 10.13 High Sierra and macOS 10.14 Mojave Soundflower Install

  1. Download the installer: soundflower_2.0b2.zip.
  2. Run it and perform the install
  3. The installer will tell you that it failed. This is completely normal.
  4. Open the System Preferences and go to the “Security & Privacy” settings.
  5. Click on the “Allow” button next to “MATT INGALS”.(This has to be a physical hardware click. Remote desktop connections or even local software tools like “Better Touch Tool” won’t work!)
  6. Run the installer again. This time it will run through without any problems.

Soundflower is a macOS kernel extension that creates virtual audio input and output devices which can be used to transfer a sound signal between various applications. It comes with an easy-to-use menu bar app that allows you to configure the settings and send the audio signal to specific devices. JACK Audio Connection Kit. Sophisticated real-time, low latency routing of audio and MIDI data. Blackhole is an easy, free way to do that on the Mac, right through the latest macOS Catalina. The utility Soundflower got some brand recognition among music and audio nerds after its introduction way back in 2004, and it does still have people working on support. 🔖This tutorial is about installation and usage of SoundFlower app to capture sound on your Mac. As with many free applications it sometimes hard to understan.

Download Soundflower for Mac to pass audio to other applications. 3 months free with 1-year plan. Download Now Best for customer support $39.99 for the first 12 months.


Click 'Open Security Preferences'

Click on the Allow button and run the installer again.

IMPORTANT: If you can’t record from Soundflower under Mojave (the device is there but only silence is being recorded) make sure that you have given microphone access permissions to your recording app! macOS treats Soundflower like a microphone in this regard. Go to system preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Privacy -> Microphone -> [check mark next to your recording app]

macOS 10.10 - 10.12 Soundflower Install

Because we’re getting this asked a lot: Here’s how you get Soundflower to work with macOS 10.12 Sierra and OS X 10.10 and 10.11…

As you know, since 10.10, OS X requires kernel extensions to be signed. Sadly the officially available version of Soundflower isn’t signed because it’s an open source project and - as far as we know - no one has volunteered to do the work and pay the $99 fee to obtain a signing certificate.

That’s why we have built a signed version of Soundflower which will work on OS X 10.10, 10.11 and the new macOS 10.12 Sierra.

Here is the direct download link: soundflower_2.0b2.zip.

Download the zip and run the contained installer. Even though not required you probably should restart your Mac to make sure everything got installed properly.

Enjoy!

Please note that we can’t offer direct support for Soundflower. We just built a version you can install on macOS 10.11 and 10.12. If you encounter any problems please contact Soundflower’s developer! You can find their project page here: https://github.com/Soundflower-Original

Shameless self promotion: Have you tried Vector yet? Vector is an audio editor for OS X that is designed to fit into the space between simple audio apps and full blown studio production tools. (Kinda like Cool Edit Pro for the Mac - if you are that old school).
