However you may wish to set up more advanced audio routing by using Loopback.
In addition to the written instructions below on how to use Loopback, we've included a tutorial video produced by one of our Ecamm Live members, Kurt Nugent.
Loopback by Rogue Amoeba software is a powerful audio routing app which allows easily sending sound from one application to another. It is not free, but has a free trial.
Once installed, Loopback presents a screen where you can create virtual audio devices.
There are two methods you can use.
Method 1: Setting up Loopback to capture Ecamm Live's output + Your Mic
Step 1: Launch Ecamm Live
Step 2: In Loopback, click the New Virtual Device button at the bottom left. Give your device a name like "Virtual Mic".
Step 3: Delete the "Pass-Thru" Source by clicking the trash can button.
Step 4: Click the + button and select Ecamm Live.
NOTE: If you're bringing in a Skype guest, add Skype as a source as well.
Step 5: Click the + button again and select the microphone you wish to use.

Step 1: Click the New Virtual Device button at the bottom left. You can use the default settings. Give your device a name like "Virtual Mic".
Step 2: In Ecamm Live, select Output -> Audio Monitor -> Virtual Mic.
Step 3: In the app you're sending to, select the Virtual Mic as your microphone. For example, in Zoom:
