Sending Signals Directly to SignalScope
with Jack OS X

The question often arises of whether one can use SignalScope (http://www.faberacoustical.com/index.php?id=20) (or SignalScope Pro (http://faberacoustical.com/index.php?id=11)) to analyze signals directly from another application (like SignalSuite (http://www.faberacoustical.com/index.php?id=24) or iTunes).  Although this can be done via an appropriate cable routed from the audio output on your Mac directly to the audio input, there is another solution which allows the routing to be done entirely in software. Jack is a type of audio server, which allows audio data to be transferred directly between applications on your Mac. Although Jack was originally written for the GNU/Linux operating system, Jack OS X provides a convenient implementation for Mac OS X.
