Audio Keepalive

Do you use an optical audio cable to connect your mac and your amplifier? Do you experience one second silences in high fidelity music, lost words and lost sounds in movies? Well, it's not your nor your hardware's fault - it's an energy saving feature of the optical audio interface - the S/PDIF standard. And Audio Keepalive is the solution for you!!!

The app generates an absolutely unhearable tone that prevents your optical audio output to shut down at short silences/musical breaks, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted hi-fi audio stream.

Audio Keepalive is a menu bar application. Just click on the menu bar icon and select "Quit" to quit.

Enjoy!

Ratings and Reviews

Thanks! Works as advertised

Same issue with losing that first second of output via Optical or HDMI audio from my Mac Mini - this solved it. And yes, it’s totally inaudible!

Would be a 5 star app with one change...

If there was only an option to hide the dock icon/run in the background this would easily be a 5 star app. While it works it’s a bit intrusive and annoying to see it in my dock.

works perfectly

Solved an issue with communication with my Anetelope DAC. Keeps the optical port signal going at whatever rate is set. 44, 48 etc. Thank you!
