macos – Cannot route Messages audio by Loopback

Catalina 10.15.7

I’ve a persistent downside the place the Apple ecosystem tries to be “sensible” about the place it routes alerts for textual content messages, which just about all the time means it routes it to the incorrect system (between mac, telephone, and watch) and I do not hear audible alerts for essential messages. I all the time have headphones plugged into my mac, so if an alert performs there I will not hear it if I do not occur to have the headphones on in that second – which occurs quite a bit.

I needed to route solely audio from Messages, to my bodily audio system, which might resolve the problem. Rogue Amoeba’s software program Loopback looks as if it ought to to the job, and it really works tremendous for an app like Music. However Messages audio refuses to route wherever however my headphones regardless of setting it to route by Loopback.

How can I get Messages to route its audio by Loopback whereas leaving every thing else going to headphones? As soon as upon a time I’d have used SoundFlower for this, however apparently it is not a factor.
