  • Soundflowerbed used to work but not with el Cap. I'm looking for the same solution if anyone knows. Its a complete waste if I can utilize my monitors as great speakers when they have great speakers integrated. I have 2 27" cinema displays and even though I can set them in MIDI to default and listen to them, I cannot control the volume with the keys in the keyboard... That doesn't make sense to me.

  • Your Mac will send audio to only one output source at a time. The exception is "alert" audio which can be directed to a second output source.

  • Unless something has changed with Mavericks, no, not without third party software. I can't remember the name of the software off the top of my head, but I looked into it when I first got my second display.
