Instructions for:
Installing ACE on Macs running MacOS 12 (Monterey) and MacOS 11 (Big Sur)

Our Audio Capture Engine, which we refer to as “ACE”, is a powerful audio handling component, which enables audio capture on your Mac with our products:

Airfoil
Audio Hijack
Loopback
Piezo
SoundSource

ACE is also used by many third-party licensee products to capture audio.

Since MacOS 11 (Big Sur), the initial installation of ACE has required a bit of quick setup. The built-in ACE installer found in our products walks you through this.

On this page, we detail the full, step-by-step sequence needed to install ACE on MacOS 11 and MacOS 12. This is a one-time process, and you'll be up and running in just a few minutes.
