no Mac audio jack, can I use USB?

Post by sarah_hankins »

The headphone jack on my MacBook Pro is broken, but I want to use the MacBook to Transmit and my iPad air to Receive. Can I run the Transmission audio through a USB interface (Onyx Blackjack) to the iPad? I think I should be able to (?) but it's not working. I've set my MacBook audio system preferences to "built-in" input and "USB" output. What am I missing here?

Thank you!

So the iPad receiver still gets the signal from the internal microphone?

Sorry, there is no option for switching between the audio cards (internal / external). Only default system input/output. I'm not sure why the Blackjack is not recognized as default audio device. I will try to test it and add more audio options in the next app update.

Thanks for the reply! I actually figured it out eventually by using Soundflower. Setup: Mackbook System preferences set to Soundflower 2 channel for both Input and Output; Ableton Live preferences set to Sounflower for Input and Onyx Blackjack for output.
