Switch Audio Device Action

Post by prenagha » Fri Oct 24, 2014 9:40 pm

Action that lets you switch Input and Output Audio devices. Requires switchaudio-osx which is most easily installed via homebrew.

When invoked it returns items for each output device (headphones) and each input device (microphone). The currently selected item for each is prefixed with *. Select an item and hit enter to switch to that item.

I can't get this to install for some reason. Do I need to download/install XCode?

You can't get the action to install or the dependent switchaudio-osx program to install?

If the later then yes you need the Xcode command line tools installed. See and follow the home-brew instructions first.

Love this action.

When I wanted to implement audio switching, I developed my own solution but this one is more elegant. Thanks!

Hi, I installed this action, following all steps.
I can switch input device, but the output doesn't change. I believe it is because of the confirmation dialogue that appears when changing the output device in system prefs. Is it possible to disable this alert?
