Yes! Sound Siphon works with all of your applications, including sandboxed applications.
- Sound Siphon can capture audio of sandboxed apps
- Sound Siphon devices can be used in sandboxed apps
- Sound Siphon is, itself, sandboxed and follows Apple’s sandboxing rules.
Below is Sound Siphon being used with QuickTime Player to capture audio from Safari. Both of these apps are sandboxed.
There are a few settings that you should check first.
- In System Preferences -> Sound, make sure that System Sound Siphon is selected as your default output.
- Click on the “Preview Volumes” button.
- Listen to and adjust the volumes of the applications captured.
- When you are done adjusting the volumes click “Save Volumes”.
While you are editing the volumes the audio you hear is the post-mix audio. The volume sliders are enabled and a level meter is shown. If “Mixed Stereo” is enabled you will only see one post-mix level meter.
- Enable the “Mute” option.
If any of your devices with the mute option enabled are in use the applications selected will be muted. Be careful with this setting. If you experience any problem with an application not playing audio properly you should verify the mute setting on your devices.
Yes. It is very easy to capture application audio in separate channels. This allows you to record audio with iTunes in channels 1 and 2, and Safari in channels 3 and 4, for example.
- Disable the “Mixed Stereo” option on your device. That’s it!
Notice the channel numbers are displayed for each application.
