Video signal and internal Mac speakers in Resolve

Recommended Posts

These days I'm working from home so I don't have any speakers attached to the Decklink. So, I'm getting video signal out on my grading monitor but no audio. Do you know if it's a "button" in Resolve that lets me continue to get the video signal out but at the same time listen to the internal Mac speakers?

I usually don't need audio when grading, but sometimes when finishing I need to check the sound mix and see that things are synced. I know I can bypass video in the video and audio I/O preferences to get internal audio, but that will break the video signal.

In Avid, I can click a button near the timeline that let me switch between the desktop audio and deckling audio and it doesn't break the video signal.

Yes, in Davinci>preferences>video and audio I/O in speaker setup box, check "use system audio output"
I think you will have a delay in your reference monitor so it won't be 100 % accurate.
