WHAT’S NEW Version 5.3.2:
Major Updates in ACE 11.7 The Audio Capture Engine (ACE) has been updated to 11.7. Its sample rate converter has been upgraded, drift correction has been improved, and several rare issues have been resolved.
Modified Popover Behavior Now Better Accomodates Desired On-Screen Layouts You can now better control the exact on-screen layout of pinned windows, because SoundSource no longer automatically reattaches pinned windows when they’re moved close to their original attachment points. To reattach a pinned window, click the Pin button to unpin it. It will return to its standard location for later access.
Better Support for Loopback Virtual Audio Devices SoundSource now works better with Loopback virtual audio devices set as the System Output. Audio effects will now work as expected with these virtual devices.
Support for Xcode’s Simulator It’s now possible to capture audio from Xcode’s Simulator with SoundSource.
SoundSource’s Magic Boost effect has been tweaked slightly, for even better sound with spoken word audio.
If SoundSource is already open, attempting to open it again from the Finder will cause SoundSource’s main window to appear.
Custom Profiles imported into Headphone EQ now have correct Q values applied. Profiles imported with an older version of SoundSource will be automatically corrected as well.
A bug where certain applications (Catalyst apps, as well as iOS apps running on Apple Silicon Macs) could be captured and processed twice has been fixed.
Applications which have effects applied to them will no longer have a tiny bit of unprocessed signal heard during initial playback.
The Quick Tour now properly supports the new “Speak items under the pointer” setting in MacOS 11 (Big Sur).
Improvements have been made for the Installer and Quick Tour, to present better on small resolutions, using scrollbars to make all content accessible.
When SoundSource is unlocked by entering a valid license key, in addition to displaying an animation, it will now play a brief celebratory sound for visually impaired users.
