Live Player

In the Live Player you can route whatever you want, like an external source (iPod, radio, instrument, other computer) or an internal source (iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud).

External Source

  1. Connect the signal you want to use to the inputs of your audio interface.
  2. Click on the Open SoundCard Options button and choose your audio interface as Input Device.

  1. Finally, choose the input channels you are using to route the signal.

Internal Source

In order to route audio from other programs running inside your computer, you need an internal router. We use SoundFlower in OSX and VB-CABLE in Windows. Both are free and work really well.

OSX Internal Routing with SoundFlower

First, install Soundflower.

  1. Download Soundflower to your computer.
  2. Open the dmg file.
  3. Launch Soundflower.pkg to install it.
  4. Agree to the License terms and install it.
  5. Restart your computer.

Now, open TrainYourEars and route the signal.

  1. Choose Soundflower (2ch) as input in TrainYourEars.

  1. Alt+click on the volume icon of the menu bar.

  1. Choose Soundflower (2ch) as output in your system.

  2. Now any signal played in your computer should be routed to TrainYourEars.

Once you have finished your training, remember to select your normal output again.

If you hear noises try switching to ad_portaudio Core Audio driver instead. In certain computers it works better than Core Audio.
