    Am I missing something? Not seeing where I can download this. Thanks!

    It's packaged inside the iShowU apps (instant / studio2). It's not a separate driver anymore. There's no separate download, as it's intended to work with those two apps.

    The primary motivation was to remove the KEXT as KEXT's for this kind of usage have been deprecated by Apple for some time. A side-effect of that is that the new driver can be bundled with the app, which makes much more sense for our existing products.

    Few folks like me were using it without iShow product and it works awesome with Apple Midi app. Any chance of getting it back as free standalone driver?

    At this stage I'm not sure. SWB Is a small company, and one of the pain points with the previous driver is that I got a lot of support requests about it. It's possible to do (in fact its pretty easy), but I have made no progress on it.

    I'm trying this with an iShowU Instant trial. So far I can't record the application audio without the output being simultaneously duplicated to the built-in speaker, even when a headphone is plugged in. I need the headphone to be the monitor, not the speaker. Have I missed the info on how to do this?

    Well, on further experimentation I was able to make the multi-output device include the built-in audio, which was treated as the headphone when plugged in. Then I made the multi-output device the output for iShowU Instant. This wasn't intuitive, though.

    I can't get IShowU Instant to record my microphone (via Scarlett One) and Premiere Pro discrete in PCM. Mixdown t Apple Lossles or AAC works fine. But PCM only records Premiere Pro and no Microphone. I'm on 10.14.6. I've bought the Advance add-on and installed the SWB Audio Capture. Help please...

    Neil, I'm here for only 'SWB Audio Capture' (was looking for iShowU Audio Capture) but happy to pay for it.
    I just have one question. If I buy iShowU Instant, can I install only SWB Audio Capture without installing iShowU Instant?

    Kevin: you *can*, but the audio playthrough won't work, as that is baked into the iShowU apps themselves. I'm pondering if I write a paid-for variant of this.

    I will buy it! I use the old one daily and would love to support SWB by purchasing the “new version” that is yet to be.

    I'm in the same boat as Asif and Kevin. I really like the simple and effective stand alone driver. It adds exactly the capability to Apple midi I was looking for. If you build it's heir I will buy it.

    Thinking about what is needed from your perspective: a way to have playthrough. That might be an invisible app (with menu bar), or perhaps some app that doesn't need to run all the time. Any ideas on what you'd like to see would be appreciated/will help my thinking!

    Came here from this support article at Streamlabs: https://streamlabs.com/content-hub/post/capturing-desktop-audio-in-streamlabs-obs-for-mac

    I would have gladly paid $30 or $40 for a solution. Things don't have to be free. Seems I'll now have to got to loopback and buy their tool for $107 (with taxes in my country) which is quite a bit for a band with no income :-)

    Another option to consider if it moves you. Continue to distribute the standalone gratuit, but charge for support or some other freemium type of model.
