Follow me on social media

Facebook is my main news hub where I share upcoming releases, gigs, photos, videos, and blogs. Typically, I post 3–5 times a week.

Telegram and Twitter duplicate what I post on Facebook, with occasional extra content.

On Vkontakte, I write in the Russian language for my fans out of from Russia and CIS.

I also upload vlogs and gigs videos on YouTube and share travel photos, selfies, and studio routine on Instagram.

Capturing audio on macOS

Hey Daniel, thanks for your great blog! Quick question: how do you capture internal audio, let’s say some streaming in the browser or a dialogue in a film? I’m running macOS Sierra.

Anton, in order to capture internal audio, you need to change signal routing using a special tool. There are quite a lot of such tools out there, but among the others, I’d recommend checking out “Soundflower” — it’s a free, open-source, and tiny system extension.

Once installed, go to System Preferences → Sound → Output, and choose Soundflower (2ch):

Now all you need is any audio recording software, whether it’s your DAW or an app like Audacity. Just choose Soundflower (2ch) in the audio recording settings:

And that’s pretty much it. Once you hit the record button, it should start recording any sound that is coming from applications on your computer.
