Loopback is an audio routing app which has been both a blessing and curse for me in my podcasting world. Think of loop back as a virtual mixer where audio sources can be passed into and out of into applications. With it’s latest release Loopback has become even more awesome.

Loopback 1.1.2 includes an important bug fixes for users with nested Loopback devices, as well as other small improvements.

Loopback 1.1 brought a slew of new features and improvements.

New and Updated in Loopback 1.1:

Major Enhancement: Loopback now supports nested devices, allowing one Loopback virtual audio device to be embedded inside another Loopback device. Now you can create even more powerful (and complex) setups.

Major Enhancement: Loopback’s backend, powered by Instant On, has been updated with full support for MacOS 10.12 (Sierra).

Major Enhancement: We’ve made a ton of small but useful interface improvements, including tooltips for overly long device summary information, visual warnings for missing devices, a Type column in the Audio Sources table, improved window resizing and full-screen support, a popover in the Home view, and changing the “Select Application…” modal dialog into a sheet.

  • Critical Bug Fix: Loopback can once again capture audio from FaceTime.
  • Critical Bug Fix: A rare issue where monitoring could fail to turn on, or fail to turn off, has been corrected.
  • Enhancement: You can now duplicate a virtual device, via the Edit menu. Undo is also now supported for virtual device creation and deletion.
  • Enhancement: Loopback devices will now show a custom icon, based on their settings, in other apps like Audio MIDI Setup.
  • Enhancement: Applications can now be dragged directly to the Audio Sources table to add them to a virtual device.
  • Enhancement: If a monitoring device is missing, Loopback will now warn you via Notification Center, as well as in the app’s main interface.
  • Enhancement: Loopback now also uses Notification Center to alert you to software updates when the main application isn’t open.
  • Enhancement: Virtual devices now support the 176.4 kHz sample rate.

Other: There are many additional fixes and improvements.
