Audio Hijack: Listen to different source while recording?

I am using Audio Hijack to record an audio stream playing through Safari (MacBook Pro 16-inch 2019, Ventura 13.6.3).

Is there a way to listen to another audio source at the same time with a different browser?

I have read the Audio Hijack manual but can’t seem to find out if this is possible.

When I have tried it, even though Audio Hijack is only recording the source playing via the first browser, both sources play over the computer speakers at the same time.

Thank you,


You might need SoundSource:

Thank you for the tip, @gastropod. I recently bought SoundSource but haven’t had time to work with it yet.

It looks like it will let me either mute Safari (without, I hope, preventing Audio Hijack from recording from it) or route the Safari output to the headphone jack, which I won’t be listening to anyway.

Assuming your session has an “Output Device” block, all you need to do is click once on that block and then click the On/Off switch (at the top right of the control) to Off. No SoundSource necessary.
