Outputing audio on mac




Running MacPro here and trying to output audio to a different sound device.  

I have several aggregate devices that I set up for different scenarios.  The are all hosted by the same 32ch interface.  This particular set up is supposed to take audio out on ch 15-16 but instead, It keeps playing it on channels 1 & 2.    Is it because Zoom does not recognize aggregate devices?  It plays it on first two channels of the default interface even though in preferences is chosen an aggregate device.


I hope you understand what am saying 🙂


Any ideas?


Thanks 🙂






To output audio on your Mac in Zoom, you can follow these steps:

  1. Launch the Zoom app: Open the Zoom application on your Mac.

  2. Join or start a meeting: Join an existing meeting or start a new meeting by clicking on the appropriate options within the Zoom app.

  3. Click on the "Join Audio" button: Once you are in the meeting, you will see a toolbar at the bottom of the screen. Locate the "Join Audio" button and click on it.

  4. Select audio output: A pop-up window will appear with audio options. In the "Audio Output" section, choose the desired output device from the dropdown menu. The available options will depend on the audio devices connected to your Mac, such as built-in speakers, headphones, or external speakers.


@trueruvoice I am having the same issue. I have a mixer that presents an USB audio device to the mac computer with 4 channels output. When selecting the device in Zoom there is no options to output on channels 3/4, zoom only outputs on channels 1/2 which the mixer is not listening on. I wish zoom would fix this for mac. It seems to work fine for windows computers.
