Rogue Amoeba Audio Hijack Pro is one of those basic apps that I use every day. It has so many uses and functions that it is always one of the first applications I install after reinstalling OS X.
One of my favorite features with Audio Hijack Pro is how easy it is to route audio from certain applications to selected sources. There are other ways to do this, but Audio Hijack makes it super easy. Check out our full video to see how easy it is.
Step 1: Install Audio Hijack Pro. You can find it, and it comes with a free trial
Step 2: Launch Audio Hijack Pro and add a new source by clicking the ‘+’ button in the lower left corner of the app
Step 3: On the Source Input tab, click the Select button next to the application window and choose the application whose audio you want to redirect.
Step 4: Click the Effects tab, click one of the effect boxes and choose 4FX Effect> Auxiliary Input
Step 5: In the Additional Device Input pop-up box, click the Device tab and select the output source to which you want to route the audio for the selected application
Step 6: Click the Hijack button in the upper left corner of the Audio Hijack Pro main interface
Step 7: If necessary, click the Mute button for your source application. This will isolate the audio from the selected output source
Watch the video for a step-by-step visual introduction to audio redirection. It may seem like many steps, but when you do it a few times it becomes second nature.
What do you think? How is the audio routed to the desired sources independently? Sound down in the comments section.
