'''Audio Configuration''' The audio, however, is another matter. With the latest version of the Macintosh OS, SoundFlower and SoundFlowerBed are broken, and as a result the configuration described above is no longer possible. In my case I have moved to mixing the audio entirely external to the computer, with a small analogue mixer and a 2-in, 2-out USB audio interface. The configuration is as follows:

MICROPHONE: Amplify this to line level, eg with a mic preamp (I use a "Voice Channel" with preamp, EQ and comp/limiter). Split the output into two. Take one path to the Line In socket of the Macintosh and the other to a mono channel of the mixer. In Skype, set the Mac Line In as the Microphone source for calls. This arrangement provides the mixer (which is the audio source for Wirecast) with a feed from your microphone while also feeding the mic signal to Skype so your confederates can hear you.

SKYPE: In Skype, set the output as your audio interface. (I use an M-Audio Fast Track Pro but any 2-in, 2-out unit should do.) Take the analogue output of the interface to another input channel on the mixer. This feeds the other people on the call to Wirecast and also lets you hear them.

IN-WORLD SOUND: Bring stereo audio from the computer running the Viewer into a stereo channel on the mixer.

'''Livecast Settings''' Note that you can use this setup in a similar way with Livecast Procaster, should you ever need to: Set the Windows machine up as described and in Procaster edit the settings as follows: Input Source to 1080p30, then in Preferences > Video set output resolution to 1280 x 720 and then click Cropping and once again set left and right to 320 and top and bottom to 180. Note that in my case the preview screen in the Cropping setup lied about how the image was being cropped, but the numbers get it right.
