Soundflower has been developed as an open source kernel extension to macOS operating systems , and its function is to facilitate the creation of a virtual audio output device but which is also capable of acting as an input medium. This extension has been developed by Cycling '74 and with Soundflower it is possible to emulate an audio device with either 2 or 16 channels.
In case of using the 16 channels, it is possible to carry out the audio environment emulation in more complex environments, this makes it possible to use it with more than two applications simultaneously, but the Soundflower support has lost little by little robustness since it has passed to other owners and its design has been partly lost.
Therefore, if you have Soundflower on macOS, TechnoWikis will explain how to uninstall it completely:
