So I've got a mac here, bear with me.
I use an audio interface for both input and output audio for everything (both my pc and mac). Skype refuses to listen to anything other than input 1 for my audio interface when I use it. I'm trying to use both of my inputs at the same time. Skype is the only one being a little shit about it.

On my windows machine, I can use my headset as the same time as the interface, which fixes the problem. Or pushes it to the side. However, the mac has that single jack. My headset is the kind that has a single line in for both mic and headphones. The mac is a bitch and won't recognize the mic, while google tells me it's only for apple headphones.

TL;DR: Skype won't recognize both inputs for my audio interface

check out SoundFlower, it helps out a ton with audio routing. you might be able to switch things around so skype accepts both signals.

audio is a bitch on mac without a bunch of third party programs and plugins goin' on.. *sigh*

so you have a headset with a mic, but it has only one jack or..?

I use soundflower :/ It's not helping, since somehow skype is still only listening to the first input.

I use the razer blackshark. It has a single jack, but it comes it a splitter that separates both headphones and mic to their own jack.

How about getting something like an iMic, that has separate line-in/line-out jacks? On the plus side the audio quality is usually tons better than everything built-in.

You should be able to set the iMic to be the default audio input and output device in the Sound system preference. That should be the device(s) that Skype latches onto like a mewling kitten.

There may be a breakout cable someplace for the audio input/output jack on your MacBook, but you're probably better off sidestepping the built-in audio completely.

That actually sounds like a good idea. I guess I'll have to get a physical adapter that just lets me bypass the mac's line completely.

I don't know how common Mac compatibility is, but my crappy little Plantronics headset came with a USB audio adapter that works PC & Mac w/o additional drivers.
