The Scenario is this:
I have a Bose Mini SoundLink bluetooth speaker and a headset connected to my MacBook. Normally you can only have one device making sound and can switch between them.
This is a native utility tool, Audio MIDI Setup, on OS X, that let you take advantage of multiple inputs and outputs.
Audio MIDI Setup is located in /Applications/Utilities/.
- Click the “+” button at the bottom left corner.
- Choose “Multi-Output Device”.
- Check all the output devices you’d like to use in the main panel.
And you can rename this Multi-Output Device by double click on its name.
- Now that you have it all setup, the last step is to apply it as output:
Click on the speaker icon while holding the Option keystroke, and choose your new created device.
- To adjust volumes of each individual speaker or headset
- – Click the small triangle aside the Multi-Output Device
- – Select the speaker you’d like to configure.
- – Everything is so obvious now, and you can even adjust the balance of those speakers/headsets.
What a great tool!
