I would like to upload a audio overview.

Just upload your file to something like Dropbox and post the link here.

Has anyone tested Loopback on the current operating system on the Mack? I've found what may work on one, doesn't work on others. Now, keep in mind, I'm not complaining. I'm just making an observation.

I'll look at it when I get a chance, but Rogue Amoeba is usually pretty reliable when it comes to making sure their software works on the latest version of OS X.

Hi Chris, never posted before and wasn't sure of how to deliver the file. I always thought Applevis hosted the file but thanks for the heads up.

Applevis doesn't host user submitted podcasts anymore. You will have to find a place to host it and put the link on this page.

I Must say, in the latest update of loopback, it is a lot better then before. I would encourage you to go and to check it out.

Hi, I thought AppleVis have now again started to accept user submitted podcasts, at least I do remember them doing so last year, considering their ban on user submitted podcasts didn't really last long.

Hi, John Gunn, the link to the overview is broken, or no longer available. Does anyone know the keyboard shortcuts for loopback? I want to use it to mute different feeds to nicecast for broadcasting. switching between iTunes, Skype, and my own mic/mixing board. I can't figure out how to drag in sound sources to manually configure the channels. Just got started today, but with the ease of this app, some of it seems more difficult than it should be. Any help is appreciated.
