Rogue Amoeba Loopback 2.0.0 MacOS
Suddenly, it’s easy to pass audio between applications on your Mac. Create virtual audio devices to take the sound from applications and audio input devices, then send it to audio processing applications. Loopback gives you the power of a high-end studio mixing board, right inside your computer!
Record Gameplay Videos
Making gameplay videos with great audio can often be very difficult. If you’re using a device like Elgato’s Game Capture hardware and you want to record both your microphone and the game’s audio at once, Loopback can assist!
Combine Hardware Devices
Apps like GarageBand, Logic, and Ableton Live only record from a single audio device at once. Thankfully, they offer recording from many channels. With Loopback, you can combine multiple input devices into one virtual device for easy recording.
Create Top-Notch Screencasts
Screen recorders, including QuickTime Player, allow you to include your mic’s audio. Some allow recording of system audio instead, but neither option is ideal. Create a virtual device that grabs just the mic and the app’s audio to get exactly the audio you want.
Route Audio For Broadcasts
Set a simple (pass-thru) device as the output at the end of an Audio Hijack chain, and then as the input source in Nicecast. Now listeners can tune in to a live stream of your podcast as you record it!
So Much More…
With Loopback, you gain incredible power and control over how audio is routed around your Mac and between applications. We can’t wait to hear about the incredible new uses you find for it!
Works With Any Application
Make a virtual audio device with audio from the applications on your Mac, including production apps like Logic or Reason, as well as simple audio players, like iTunes or QuickTime.
Works With Any Input Device
Pull audio from the physical audio devices connected to your Mac. Whether you’ve got simple USB microphones, or high-end studio mixers, Loopback can access it all.
Combine Apps and Physical Devices
Of course, you can create a virtual audio device that includes audio from both apps and physical audio devices.
Your virtual audio devices can be configured to have up to 32 channels, providing tremendous power.
Custom Channel Mapping
By default, Loopback sets up channel mapping automatically. If you want to manually configure things, though, you’ve got powerful options!
Create as many virtual audio devices as you need to get the job done.
Compatibility: MacOS 10.11 or Later

What’s New in Rogue Amoeba Loopback 2.0.0
A Massive Interface Overhaul:
- The most noticeable change in Loopback 2 is its brandnew user interface. The first version of Loopback offered tremendous audio routing capability, but harnessing that power was not as simple as it could’ve been.
- For version 2, we worked hard on a redesigned interface that will be intuitive for everyone. Loopback now features a simple new wiring system that lets you easily visualize and adjust how your audio will flow.
Volume Controls Galore:
- Users asked for it, and we provided it. Loopback 2 provides control over volume levels at every step of the way. The volume from individual sources can be tweaked relative to other sources, to get the perfect mix. Audio levels sent to monitoring devices can also be adjusted, as can the audio level from the virtual audio device itself.
More Powerful Monitoring:
- Monitoring virtual audio devices is now simpler than ever. Just add a monitor at the end of the device, and wire it up to get the exact audio desired. Listen in to the entire device, or use the custom wiring to monitor just part of the audio. You can even have multiple Monitors per virtual audio device, so you can hear exactly what you need to.
Capture Hidden Sources:
- Audio can now be captured from previously unavailable sources, like Siri, VoiceOver, and TexttoSpeech. Hold down the option key while clicking the Add Source button to reveal the “Running Processes” menu, then select the correct hidden source.
Up to 64 Channels:
- Virtual audio devices can now provide up to 64 channels of input and output, for amazing power.
Fully Configurable Channels:
- Just about any setup is now possible, with configurable routing of audio from all audio sources to output channels, as well as from output channels to the new, more powerful monitoring devices.
An Explicit Pass-Thru Source:
- PassThru functionality, previously an implicit part of Loopback, is now visible as an actual audio source. This allows for more power and control over the audio passing through your virtual audio devices.
On/Off Toggles for Sources and Monitors:
- Loopback’s virtual audio devices are more configurable than ever, with the ability to turn off individual sources and monitors within a device. Rather than deleting a source or monitor, and losing its settings, you can now temporarily toggle it off as you make adjustments to get exactly the audio you need.
