Use the J-app in your favorites DAW

If you use the J-App, you may be aware that connections to classic DAWs as sound interfaces or virtual instruments are not always obvious. But don't worry, there are simple solutions to make these connections smoother: audio routers.

What is an audio routeur?

An audio router, like Soundflower or Loopback for example, is a software or hardware tool that lets you manage and direct the flow of audio between different sources and destinations on your computer system. It creates virtual channels for audio input and output, enabling you to redirect sound between different applications and peripherals on your computer. What's more, it offers the ability to create audio loops, meaning you can easily redirect sound from one application to another.


Let's take Soundflower as an example. The steps required to configure Soundflower correctly are fairly easy. In your favorite DAW, simply select the audio router as your input sound interface. Soundflower acts as an internal audio interface, so you don't need to open the application to use it.


Loopback is another popular solution for simplifying audio connections between the J-App and conventional DAWs. In contrast to Soundflower, Loopback needs to be open to perform audio routing. Here's how to configure Loopback for optimum use:
In the Loopback interface, you'll find the "New Virtual Device" option. Click on it to create a new virtual device. Next, add a source to select the Joué App from your applications and audio devices.
In your DAW, you can then choose Loopback as the input audio interface. Select the channel corresponding to the one to which you've connected the Joué App. With this configuration, you'll be able to take full advantage of the Joué App's features in your favorite DAW.
