My thanks to Rogue Amoeba, the very first Six Colors sponsor, for once again sponsoring Six Colors this week!
Rogue Amoeba’s Mac utility Loopback makes it trivial to pass audio from one application to another on your Mac. Whether that’s playing a recording into Zoom, adding sound effects into a podcast, or include music into a streamed event, Loopback gives you the power to do it with just a few clicks.
Loopback’s magic is that it creates virtual audio devices, which merge audio from multiple applications and input devices into a single source. Then you can just select them in any audio app on your Mac. It’s incredibly powerful. And Loopback’s intuitive wire-based interface makes it easy to understand what sound is flowing where.
I use Loopback for podcasts (letting me play a live soundboard for my guests), and for live streaming tabletop gaming on YouTube (mixing my microphone with the output of a Zoom call). Loopback can probably help you, too. Through April 30, Six Colors readers can save 21% with coupon code SIXLB.
