We will be with you, don't worry. If you need further support, search for specific MacOS-topics on our website https://dev.swift-project.org/ and/or visit us on our Discord support server.

Hi, any idea regarding the possibility to have voice comm fot us Mac users ?



I managed to get Swift/xswiftbus 0.9.3.xxx430 ("alpha") running on 2018 MacMini, Mojave 10.14.6, USB mic input, displayport output, X-Plane11.41r1 with ctrl-v hotkey mapping. It was not turnkey, but managed.


Perhaps list your exact system config to get started.

Good Day!

My system is old....2010 Mac Pro 2x3.33 Ghz 6-Core Intel Xeon - 32GB 1333MHz DDR3 - 2TB NVMe HD - Radeon RX580 8GB

I use Corsair Void PRO RGB USB Wireless Headset. OS High Sierra 10.13.6 - XP11.40


First not really sure which version to use... but from your reply its Swift/xswiftbus 0.9.3.xxx430 Alpha. So is it Swift and xswiftbus or xswiftbus stand alone. If I recall it wanted me to download a Windows app too.


This old man is just trying to figure this out...

I guess I need to go with PilotEdge. Their app is simple and works pretty easy.


That’s what I did, you’ll be very happy with the money spent.


This whole VATSIM audio Mac thing has left a sour taste in a lot of people’s mouths.


It’s good to see some developers still trying to get it up and going, but as one person said rather arrogantly to me on another forum. Mac users simply don’t count.


So come join the rest of the refugees on pilotedge!

There is a perfectly functional XSquawkBox Beta available for all platforms if you don’t want the h[Mod - Happy Thoughts]le of setting up swift. I’m not sure why everyone is still slamming the powers that be for shutting out Mac users when the software options are now available.

I tried XSquawkBox and have worked with support via email. XSquawkBox and XP11.40 crashes when

I select my mic for my usb headset. Maybe my system is too old. i’m not sure. I had tried using Pilot Edge

before and it just didn’t work out for me. I’m not sure who is slamming who... leave me out of it.


Maybe XSquawkBox will come up with a fix or maybe I will figure out Swift. I guess

it’s back to the beginning for now.
