Movie sound player or movie player and AU effects



  • I record a live speaker (capture to disk) and play back the voice (movie sound player or movie player) at the end of the record. No problem. But I want to change the sound with any AU effects and I don't find any way to make it because the movie player don't have audio output. can anybody help me.

    thank you
    Jean-François


  • Dear Jean-François,

    There is no way to do this directly at the moment -- the Movie players do not have an 'audio' output that can go to the AU actors.
    What some users have done is to use Soundflower to do this. (See http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/14067/soundflower)
    1) In Audio Midi Setup, set the default audio output to "Soundflower 2-Ch" 
    2) Use the Sound Input actor, and select "Soundflower 2-Ch" as the input.
    3) Pass audio through audio effects you wish to use.
    4) Use the "AudioDeviceOutput" actor to output the sound -- set the 'device' input to the audio device on which you wish to hear the sound. (E.g., "Built-in Output")
    So the sound goes like this: Movie -> Soundflower -> Sound Input Actor -> EFX -> Output Device
    and you'll hear the audio effects on the movie.
    Give this a try and see how it works for you.
    Best Wishes,
    Mark

  • It works well for me. I had try before this solution before without success because I use it with the AU Varispeed and it don't work in this configuration. Only with AU Audio File Player. With AU Pitch or Distortion it works great.

    Thanks
