A signed Soundflower.
(as required by Apple, this version of Soundflower.kext will be
installed in the /Library/Extensions folder,
not in /System/Library/Extensions as previous versions were).

This version restores the 2ch & 64ch devices to work with apps
that expect this (like soundflowerbed)

NOTE: This is only the Soundflower kernel extension. The SoundflowerBed app is retired. A new replacement is in the works. In the meantime, you can take your chances with an older version of Soundflowerbed, but you can do a lot with a Multi-Output Aggregate Device. Here's an example:

Say i want to play some audio in iTunes, but record it in Quicktime while listening to it out of the built-in speakers. Here is how i would set it up:

*in iTunes:

start playing audio

Open Audio MIDI Setup: (found in /Applications/Utilities)

hit the '+' button in the bottom left corner and select "Create Multi Output Device"
in the the panel that appears on the right, select "Built-in Output" AND "Soundflower (2ch)"
then hit the button with the gear icon bottom left and select "use this device for sound output" (you should still be hearing your iTunes output -- it is now going to both Soundflower and the built-in speakers)

Then In Quicktime:

create a new audio recording
in the popup menu next to record button select "Soundflower (2ch)" as the input
(you should now see record levels changing)
hit record!

Signed Version for Yosemite/Mavericks

@mattingalls mattingalls released this Nov 1, 2014 · 13 commits to master since this release

Beta version of a signed, 128-channel version of Soundflower.
(as required by Apple, this version of Soundflower.kext will be
installed in the /Library/Extensions folder,
not in /System/Library/Extensions as previous versions were).

FIRST try the downloading the Soundflower-2.0b1.dmg installer.
After downloading, control-click on Soundflower.pkg and select "open"
(then click "Open" in the "unidentified developer" alert window)

IF THE INSTALLER FAILS

look in System Preferences:Sound and see if the old Soundflower devices are still loaded.
if so, open a terminal and type:

sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext
sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext

confirm the old Soundflower devices are unloaded,
then try running the .pkg installer again

AND IF YOU ARE STILL HAVING TROUBLE

you can try installing manually:

Download the Soundflower.kext.zip file.
Assuming it is automatically unzipped in side your Downloads folder,
Open a terminal and type:

sudo mv ~/Downloads/Soundflower.kext /Library/Extensions
sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext
sudo kextload /Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext

if that all works then you can remove the old version:

sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext
