    I need to record my phone calls and using Soundflower to route both the audio system output and microphone input into Quicktime.


    I see the signal coming in and everything seems fine.. but when I record, only the microphone input gets recorded properly.. the output (the other guy on the phone) not..


    What can be the issue?

    Depends what Mac are you using and what version of Mac OS are you running?

    Have you tried the steps here? I don’t think you can do what you want to do using Soundflower alone.

    I should also note as a word of caution that Apple is introducing changes in macOS Catalina that may eventually lead to its no longer being supported in its current form with a future macOS release.

    thanks!

    Yea, I followed this exactly.


    Looks like the same thing.
    But I'll go over the tutorial you sent to see if I missed something.

    Good to know about the OS update.. that's why I hate updates lol.

    The functionality of Soundflower should've been built into MacOS by default.


    Okey, just tested everything.. "Screen recording" works perfectly, but "Audio recording" not..

    How is that possible ?

    I was always told Apple disables audio on phone convos due to legality issues with some states. I have tried countless ways and never succeeded.

    hm, that's interesting. Thanks.

    I have tried this with just regular audio (song/youtube video) playing..

    But I mean, in the worst case I just do screen recordings instead, with a very small recording area (to save space)
