Mac Pro Users Rejoice: SoundSource v1.3

SoundSource, our indispensable audio device selection tool, has just been updated to version 1.3. In addition to a sleek new icon that everyone will enjoy, version 1.3 has a special “Autoswitch to Headphones” feature just for Mac Pro users.

On Mac Pros, the line output device is no longer paired with the headphone output, which means that plugging in headphones doesn’t automatically switch your output to the headphone jack. No longer do you need to manually change your output via the Sound system preference, or even in SoundSource. With SoundSource’s “Auto-Switch To Headphones” option turned on, your output will switch automatically. Our thanks to Paul Kim of Noodlesoft, makers of Hazel, for inspiration and assistance with this.

But SoundSource isn’t just for Mac Pro users. It’s a great tool for anyone who wants to quickly adjust their audio device settings, including inputs and outputs, with a single click. Head to our Freebies to learn more and download SoundSource.
