    question about reaper audio on OSX using focus rite pro 24 dsp

    i'm using a focus rite pro 24 dsp firewire recording interface, what i'm trying to do is use that for my recording inputs like guitar and such, use VST's for my amps, then take the output of the recording interface and send it to the line in jack of my macbook pro so I can use the internal macbook speakers to play the overall mix. Problem is i don't hear any sound. If I plug my headphones into the recording interface I can hear everything just fine, but if I try to run to my line in jack on my macbook i hear nothing on the mac. Someone please help me!

    I don't have a mac, but I'm going to guess and say that while the interface in plugged in to your computer, the mac is trying to use it as the main sound card. Is there something that you can change in the settings for the macbook?

    Also, why not use a pair of speakers, even cheap ones. What your trying to do now may cause some latency issues on playback. Why not get a cheap pair of monitors?

    looks like it's a limitation of OSX. Got this app called linein and while it's quiet it works:
