  2. Click Sound.
  3. Click the Output tab, then select the built-in speakers. If you don’t see built-in speakers as an option in the Output window, contact Apple Support.
  4. If the Output volume slider is set low, move the slider to the right and test again.

  6. If you still don’t hear any sound, contact Apple Support.

All of your desktop audio (sound from browsers, games, music, etc) will now be routed both to your desired hardware output as well as this virtual iShowU Audio Capture device. Simply select the iShowU Audio Capture as one of your Mic/Aux devices and it'll capture everything you hear on your Mac. Apple's drive to have Apple AR hardware with high quality audio has led to research on how to create full spatial sound without developers having to record with large numbers of microphones.
