Activate the App That Is Playing a Sound? (Looking for a Way to Use App Audio Output as a Trigger)

I have setup an audio notification on firefox. I want to bring it to front as soon as firefox plays the audio.

Would appreciate your help trying to do that.

Hey @forums2012,

You might ask the Rogue Amoeba Software people.

They're about as expert as it gets on Mac audio.



Has anybody been able to find a solution to this problem in the meantime, i.e. using the fact that some app starts playing audio as a trigger?

(None of the fine Rogue Amoeba apps directly supports this use case at this time. The trick involving Audio Hijack suggested by @Sleepy on this forum still ought to work, but a more straightforward way would be nice.)
