    Soundflower for PowerPC Now On The Garden

    It turns out finding old Sowndflower releases for PowerPC was a royal pain in the arse. I had to get them from the wayback machines's backup of the old Google Code archive (which is now down). I figured others may want an easier place to find them so I put the two versions that work with Tiger...

    BlueTooth Audio Dongles to replace Apple built-in?

    Does anybody have any well -working BlueTooth dongles to replace the Apple internal board? I am really tired of AirPods and game controllers cutting out when Magic Keyboard, Trackpad, and Mouse are not connected with wires.

    What do you guys think of the new AirPods Pro audio quality?

    Like many of you I received the new APP today. Very happy with them. The noise cancellation is superb imo. The audio however is a total different story. I remember how crisp and clean the first gen sounded to me. The new APP’s sound a bit closed and muffled to me. Especially in the high range...

    I have a problem using my AirPods at work

    I think they might be automatically trying to connect to my coworker's AirPods, but I don't see how this would even be a problem because her AirPods would not be registered as being owned by me. There is bad service in the building where I work so I can understand how Spotify would be an issue...

    Real-time or off-line video translation on Mac?

    I don't know if this is even technologically possible yet. I have a TV setup with a recent Sony smart TV connected by HDMI to a 2018 Mac Mini running Mojave. I would like to watch more Spanish programming, but don't know enough of the language to follow dialogs. It's Over-The-Air (OTA)...

    Decent Deal on Desktop Audio

    A couple months ago, I bought a refurbished M1 Mac Mini direct from Apple for a steal of a deal. This machine is snappy! I am going to have to phase-in its use. The start, I'm using a 15-year-old Acer VGA-connected monitor for the video, thanks to an aftermarket Benfei VGA-to-USBC-C adaptor...

    Audio in on the mini

    Hey all, Apologizes if this was already asked (I didn’t find it), but is it possible to run audio into a 2020 M1 Mac mini? Online search returned mixed results. Some sources were saying it had to be done via USB, but that seemed like if you needed both output and input. Some said that the...

    Audio issues with FCPX 10.6.1 on 16" M1 Pro

    My issues are with editing 4K video in FCPX on a MacBook Pro M1 Pro. The issue does not exist with 1080p video. During playback in FCPX, the audio will "skip" and drop out on some frames. This usually happens after I have made a blade cut in the timeline or if I zoom in or out on the timeline...

    M1 Max Macbook Pro video/audio issues after power surge

    Unfortunately, my office suffered a power surge recently and I lost some equipment; modem, dongles, switcher, etc. However, my M1 Macbook Pro survived. It works fine except it has issues with anything to do with audio and video, that is, I can't play any audio or video. For example, I can't...

    Can’t play Lossless or Apple Digital Master

    Hello guys, I just got 2 months free of Apple Music and since I got an external DAC I wanted to try out Apple’s lossless audio and Apple Digital Master, but I can’t seem to get it to work. If I enable Lossless it only works for a brief time and then I get this error (see the photo below)...

    M1 Max 16" Headphone Jack CPU Noise While Charging via Magsafe 3 or Left TB4 Ports

    I've noticed that whenever the laptop is charging via Magsafe 3 or a left TB4 port that there is CPU usage induced static noise through the headphone jack. It's especially prevalent while scrolling through a webpage and listening to a quiet Facetime call or YouTube video. The left channel of...

    Optical audio out problem (MacMini Server 2012)

    For some reason I cannot make optical audio out work. MacMini 2012 with Catalina (I also have 10.6.8 on it, and it doesn’t work there either). Any idea what may be the cause? Identical audio setup works with my MacBook Pro (so cables and audio devices are not to blame).

    Ever since I updated to 12.0.1 Monterey, my Hitatchi Bluetooth Speaker(s) no longer connect, but it's not just that: audio drops in and out when using a pro audio cable plugged into speaker from headphone jack. It mutes randomly. Then comes back for a few seconds... then mutes again for a...

    Record separately for remote podcast on iPad Pro?

    I have successfully moved my entire workflow to the iPad Pro with one exception. I am unable to find a way to host a meeting/call where I can record more than one individual track for a podcast. On my Mac, I would use Zoom to record the tracks separately and then pull them into garage band for...
