You are hijacking your signal out into SoundFlower. I only use Soundflower to capture system audio into Audigy, etc. Have not tried to see if the Core Audio used by FCP X is sypathetic. My guess is it is not. Uncheck the monitor box, go to system settings/audio, make sure output is set to default (speakers). Use headphones. No?
You are correct about me using soundflower, however i have been using soundflower for a while and this is the first time i have had trouble. So when i turned off sound flower the same problem occured sometimes, while other times i was ably to record and then turn off the recording which is an improvement. I also notice that my sound does not seam to be picked up by FCP. when i turn on monitor i hear myself but no matter what the little bar displaying the frequency or something does nothing.
----Little bar thing------
Before I posted to you the last time, I tested it the way I posted. It recorded my voice and saved it into a an Event I had open. I suppose one could use Soundflower somehow - but I haven't tested it in Final Cut Pro 10.1.1 I use it to record audio directly from online sites that stream audio and it is great for that.
Did you go in to Sytem Preferences and Audio Midi setup to make sure your input & output destinations are kosher?
The "little bar thing" I think that you are refering to are the audio meters. Yes? Perhaps it is your inputs that need to be changed to default (internal microphone).
I do not see where you have chosen an event or project as your destination in your screen shot. I think that you have got to be IN and event or Project to be able to choose a destination. I just checked it again, works for me - with or w/o Soundflower set as a monitor. Do you have another DAW that is using SounFlower bed? You could be recording to more than one place on your drive if you have soundflower set to work with say Audigy. Hence, a delay.
Im inside of the project (as in its highlighted) but i am beginning to beleive that the problem comes fro the fact that FCP is not picking up my audio. I went to sound settings and i truned off soundflower so i think everything is set to default but maybe not?
Without the headset in:
Ok - I have made screen captures of the proper settings in the Midi Audio Setup:
For The DEFAULT INPUT -- Microphone:
For Built in Output Set AS Default in Midi Audio Devices:
So in Audio Midi setup make certain that the internal Mic has a mic to the right of it (default)
and the Speaker Icon (Built in Output) has a Mac System Icon & speaker icon to the right of it showing it tobe the default.
If yours doesn't look like the above, click on the gear and - with ONLY the internal Mic or built in speakers
selected above - make them the default.
IN The SYSTEM SETTINS --- SOUND ----
The Output should be internal speakers -- NOT MUTED
And for the input in Sound sysytem Settings, make sure out put volume is NOT muted:
If you have your system set up correctly, as you snap your fingers ot speak, you should
be able to see the input level respond in real time (This is what Final Cut "sees"):
IN system sound, the soundflower outputs are muted and it says - The selected device has no output controls
The same for the sounflower (64ch) - "No Output Controls" and muted.
Click on the ? in any of the above windows on your own computer to see selected in depth help on this.
Now you should be able to use the recorder in FCP X w/o issue, in real time. it will save your audio in the event or project that you are "in" or have selected in the browser.

Hi Tom.. yep, the camera icon, I've used GRAB that came with the OS, saved selection to my desktop, changed their tiffs to png, kept the file sizes down, I used another little app that captured jpegs. Most are uploaded - just not the last one. I even logged out, reset safari, logged back in - in case some Forum Cache was filling up. Just don't understand it. Very frustrating - its the little things.
I feel sure that the OP has configured SoundFlower in a way that it competes for input audio using Record in FCP X.
