Tutorial Description

SoundSource from Rogue Amoeba takes your Mac's audio capabilities to the next level with a host of flexible options. This week, Allison shows you how it can route audio to different outputs on a per-app basis, change the volume independently by app, and even process the audio with equalizers and other built-in Audio Unit effects.

Rogue Amoeba builds accessibility into their apps from the ground up, and Allison gives you a demonstration of how SoundSource can be used with VoiceOver on macOS. You also learn how to use Magic Boost and the new Volume Overdrive, as well as getting around the SoundSource window using keyboard shortcuts.

Excellent Alison, as always. Have to love everything Rogue Amoeba do, answered the need that arose within the last week, all of us at home, definitely more control over audio needed.

SoundSource 5 has 'different' appearance options in preferences. I can't make mine look like yours in the menu. I don't have the 'same' options as displayed here.

Mickey - Rogue Amoeba is continually enhancing and improving their software. They have added functionality to the Appearance tab on Preferences in the last year and a half since the video was published.
