Audio Interfaces Tested For Screenflow 6

As Craig and the team have said that it's impossible to test audio interfaces and qualify them then I thought I'd start a list of those tested with results. Please add any that you test and say if they work or don't, or do with some issues.

  • Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt UPDATE:

    So some more testing with the Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt:

    1. It will pass live audio coming into the inputs into Screenflow 6, but not mix the outputs from the DAW.

    2. You can get Screenflow to route the audio out of the Apogee Ensemble by using 'Loopback' from Rogue Ameba, and letting it autoroute all the channels. This may be a solution for other users unable to use Thunderbolt or FireWire audio interfaces. 

    However using this method I could not get the interface to mix both the live inputs and the ones routed via Loopback. Will explore more by trying to create an aggregate device in Audio MIDI for both.

  • Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt UPDATE 2:

    After further testing I have now been able to get both audio from the outputs of my Apogee Ensemble routed to Screenflow 6 using Loopback (see post above) and also audio from the inputs, this should work on any incompatible audio interface with Screenflow.

    1. Download Loopback from Rogue Ameba and simply select your audio device and set it up as shown above.
    2. Go into Audio Midi on your Mac and create a new aggregate device; in this case I made it up of the Loopback device and an instance of the Apogee Ensemble.
    3. Give it a suitable name.
    4. Select this Aggregate device as your audio interface to record from in Screenflow 6.

    Now you will get both the outputs from your device via Loopback and the inputs.

    Hope this helps, I may post this as a separate article for those who may have incompatible audio devices.

  • so I've been using the Native Instruments Complete audio 6 . I recently upgraded to the Focusrite Clarett 8 Pre X. I used to just set the recording to "record computer audio" and had no issues.. well that setting no longer works even though Screenflow does see the Clarett and its inputs. However the multichannel recording does work. maybe I am just missing something as far as setting up the "record computer audio" aspect (and yes my mac is set to use the Clarett as its main output) ...

  • Ken Flux Pierce Record Computer Audio uses Apple's CoreMedia for system sound. Perhaps the Focusrite driver is impacting it.

    Go to ScreenFlow Preferences, Advanced, Computer Audio and click on Uninstall Driver. Quit ScreenFlow and Reboot the Computer. Go to ScreenFlow Preferences, Advanced and Install Driver. Quit ScreenFlow, Reboot the Computer. Start ScreenFlow and just try to recording something like a YouTube video playing in a browser. Do not enable your audio interface in ScreenFlow.

See if that helps computer audio.

  • so I can get computer audio through the claret and recorded into a track. but it records it onto the same track as the webcam (not the screen capture) no audio is captured on the "computer audio" track that should be embedded into the screen capture track. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers etc. nothing helps. on top of this, it presents a problem for the type of videos I do (often demos of audio hardware both hard and software). 
    previously I would record the webcam's internal mic as well as my "computer audio" which was actually the audio passing through my Komplete audio 6. this helped with syncing things up in post as I also import video from my GH3. (I could use a reference shot of me tapping on a table to sync) now the webcam audio channel is taken over by my audio interface (claret).. I've tried to see if it had something to do with the fact that the Clarett has loop back recording and maybe that was conflicting... but still haven't seemed to be able to fix it. I am gonna go ahead and authorize your whole team to all get Clarett interfaces so you can test this on your own set ups... (I'm sure your bosses will pay for it... just smile and say please ;) ) thanks

  • BTW have you contacted Focusrite? It seems odd that their device would interfere with Apple's System Sound. That may be something they need to fix. While there are devices that use DAWs that don't use System Sound and, therefore, need to be used as an external device for recording, they shouldn't interfere with Computer Audio.

While I would use the built in mic of my web cam as my sync track. Now I can no longer do this as I have to set the Thunderbolt Clarett up on the track that was previously my "Computer audio" this is making syncing videos much harder now.

  • Computer audio with RME has always been impossible for me - with the Fireface 400 for example. To do with the interface using RME drivers. However with the RME BabyFace Pro there is a fix: put the unit into Class Compliant mode and you get your computer audio recorded fine in Screenflow. You lose TotalMix control in that mode but that's fine for recording in Screenflow.  Another fix is to to use the loopback facility on the RME but not tried that.

I could use an audio app to just capture the audio, but I've been using a webcam mounted on a boom over the keyboard to capture an inset, and ScreenFlow works great for capturing the webcam + audio tracks (except for the delay I need to hand re-sync - new feature request coming on remember that as a preference). Now I'm off to change out the mixer in my tutorial recording room to a Mackie with multiple sends to accommodate this expanded setup...

  • I just started using my RME UFX with SF 6.2 and it seems to be ok. That's why I reported it as such above. I'm using loopback in TotalMix and recording everything from the RME/UFX device inside SF. I'm not recording system audio. The sound is fine so far. The only problem that I have is that the stereo pair that is mixed out of my RME gets interpreted as two mono channels inside SF and they are not panned R/L. This results in much higher audio levels that in my case real clipping or "overs". However, keep in mind that I don't necessarily see this as an RME-specific problem. At least not yet.

  • Avi Ziv That may depend on whether the device is sending a muxed dual mono channel or two separate channels. If the latter, ScreenFlow may see it as two center panned mono inputs.

Have you tried recording straight into ScreenFlow as a source without any other software open (just record the desktop for video)? Also make sure you're monitoring through the computer's headphone jack and not a USB device (don't monitor through the BabyFace for example).

  •  Maik Winter I'm using RME Fireface UFX in loopback mode and screencasting Logic X. My RME is the hub of all my audio, monitoring, mixing in TotalMix - everything. I control my mix and have  SF record from the UFX and not from the computer audio stream. I'm not entirely clear about the distortion that you are experiencing but at last in my setup, SF reads in the UFX output pair as mono signals and has them both panned to the center. This causes major clipping distortion and an incorrect stereo mix. We can get around it (for now) by changing the pan of the audio channels inside SF to be R/L. You may want to check whether this is applicable to you. Once I have the channel pan correct in SF, the audio is fine as proven by exporting from SF and importing back to Logic X for evaluation and measurements. I understand that our devices (although closely related) are not the same but maybe this is of some help?

When I switch System Prefs > Sound > Output from Babyface to Internal Speaker (or Heaphones when connected) (Input still on Babyface) then SF records mac audio as well as my mics audio from Baby Face as intended.

    Granted, I can't hear my own voice during recording (I'm listening through headphones connected directly to MacBook, and lift one side of the headphone to better hear my voice), but at least I can monitor and adjust volume on a second screen using Totalmix. 

    When done SF recording I switch System Pref > Audio > Output back to Babyface and I have full control for post.

  • I can add the Behringer U-phoria UMC404HD to the list of audio interfaces that ScreenFlow recognizes as having four channels. It defaults to panning all to the center.

    What I am using this for is so that I can bring the mic in on input 1, and stereo from the audio gear on inputs 3 & 4. So my workflow is to extract all audio tracks, mute or delete the original audio track, delete audio track 2, re-pan track 3 hard left, re-pan track 4 hard right, and link together audio tracks 3 & 4.

    That's a lot of futzing around to perform on every recording (take) for every project. (I create one project per movie per Lynda.com training course, so we're talking typically 20-40 SF projects per course. My next one will have close to 50 projects/movies.)

    Then, in an ideal world, when I render (to send to Adobe Premiere Pro), input 1 would go on its own mono track, and 3&4 go on their own stereo track.

    But when I render from SF, my only options for audio - when I'm allowed to edit it (editing is disabled for the Lossless Audio Only preset) - is either mono or stereo. So I have to render twice, muting tracks as needed between renders.

    (As it turns out, I need to render twice anyway, as I'm recording webcam and computer screen as well with SF, and need them as separate streams when I get to Premiere.)

    On the one hand, it's great that I can use SF to record 2 video streams (one a screen capture) and 4 audio streams all at once.

    On the other hand, you would think this all could still be streamlined somehow.

But when I was testing last night, whole track audio muting (not just segment, but the speaker and video icons along the left edge of the sequence window) did not seem to be working - the waveform graphics were grayed out, but audio still played from those tracks. Is this a known bug in the most recent version? It used to work...

    Like Reply
  • Chris Meyer When you say "most recent version" do you mean this was working in 6.1 but broke in 6.2? List the steps you took to mute the whole track (even if you think it's obvious). Are you clicking off the left speaker? When in you look at the Audio Inspector (Action) panel what do you see at that point?

    Like Reply
  • CraigS The short version is: The left-hand Audio Mute buttons do not work for the 5th track and below.
    The long version (and I will file a bug report on this):
    Record audio with a 4-channel interface, with sound on all 4 channels.
    Extract all tracks.
    Mute all the tracks using the left-hand master Audio Mute buttons (not per-segment mute). All of the waveforms gray out as if they are muted.
    Play, and you still hear audio! Turns out, it's from the 4th extracted audio track, which is now the 5th track from the top in the timeline.
    Drag any other audio segment into this horizontal track, and it will start playing - so it's a horizontal track thing; not a capture segment thing.

    Since I did not have a 4-channel audio interface when I also had v6.1, I don't know if the bug existed back then. I had certainly used the muting before, but maybe not as specific as on horizontal track  or below.

    How are you monitoring? This is probably independent of ScreenFlow, my guess.

    I can see it show up in the audio area,

    I can see the channels in your screenshot but I'm not seeing any meter levels which means ScreenFlow is not seeing any audio.

    As a test I'd suggest sending an external audio source in to the 828mk2 and monitoring through computer headphone jack only. Make sure you see meter movement in the window you've posted and then record. Please make sure you've updated to ScreenFlow 6.2.1 (just released).

  • I'm glad the idea of loopback is coming up again. I've already reported elsewhere that I use it in my RME FireFace UFX. I think users of multi-channel pro gear should know about it because it allows you to do all of your monitoring via the audio interface, as one would expect in a pro environment, without having to connect anything to a computer headphones jack. In the case of RME the loopback feature is built into the digital mixer that is part of the interface. Not sure if other companies have it integrated. Some may require external wiring.  In my case, what happens with system audio is this: I set up my computer audio to send output to the RME interface. In the interface, the audio is routed to a physical output, which is then looped-back to an input and appears to SF as source audio from the interface. SF is configured receive audio from my interface. This is useful.  I'm not denying the flow that uses the computer headphone jack for monitoring. Just describing another possible way to work.

  • CraigS Hi. I'm not in the studio for a few days so can't take screenshots, but I used the same solution as Russ (8 months ago). I used Rogue Amoeba Loopback. I created a device that looked specifically at the target software for audio and it showed up straight away in Screenflow.

  • I just tested ScreenFlow 6.2.1 with the Audient iD4 interface and it works like a charm so far! :-)
