There is a solution to this.


Recently I have installed that TuneFab Apple Music Converter and noticed two additional Audiojingle items in the Audio Devices. http://prntscr.com/hp3aqf


The problem is that Audiojingle takes control over your default sound devices, so you may notice that suddenly your music will stop playing and you have to set the default output device every time this happens.


There is an install.sh script inside that app package. So you might want to check it and figure out which directory app installs its components. In my case there were two places to check in:


1. /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/HAL/

Audiojingle.driver folder

http://prntscr.com/hp3im6


2. ~/Library/LaunchAgents/

com.audiojinglex.soundtree.agent file


Delete that folder and file along with it and reboot (as well as the app itself; I suggest using CleanMyMac or AppDelete) your mac.
Once it is done the Audiojingle should disappear from your Audio Devices list. http://prntscr.com/hp42q2

I`m not 100% sure, but I think it appears after the installation of the newest release of Ondesoft AudioBook Converter. After the installation of an older release some weeks ago instead of Audiojinge "Soundflower (2CH)" appears. You can find information about Soundflower, but not about Audiojingle. For Soundflower it seems that it could really belong to Audiobook Converter. But all this are only assumptions. Maybe you can confirm the Audiobook Converter installation or something like this.

Thank you for your answer. I installed lately BitPerfect from App Store but Audiojingle appeared only after installing the OS last update! It is a total mystery... I tried to remove it but it was impossible.

My guess is that audiojingle takes the sound from your system when in use and redirects it, like a bluetooth speaker. Both of these Ondesoft apps could us it to take the sound and make a file that is DRM free. In the case of BitPerfect it would take the input to improve the sound quality and replay. I am guessing it's a necessary component to the way these apps work.


Even if I needed it it would be nice to have it hidden from the menu.

I've also got the audiojingle thing happening in sound prefs.


I dragged the Audiobook Converter to the trash and restarted but that didn't eliminate it. I checked in the library for either of those folders/files and...nothing. It's still there!


Any other help would be appreciated!
