Hello all, I wonder if anyone knows how you can set up audacity to toggle 
output to a USB headset. I currently have one connected, and in the sounds 
panel of system preferences I have it selected as output. I am hearing the 
VoiceOver through it, but when I am in audacity and play a file, it is coming 
through the output of the built in speakers. I know there is a popup button in 
preferences for audacity about output but this would be a more permenant type 
of change. I am wanting to change this on the fly. Secondly, I understand that 
in the tooldoc there is a Meeter section but I can't seem to understand that 
using VoiceOver. There seem to be a lot of areas that I interact with that are 
empty. There is also a grabber area. Can anyone help me figure out how to do 
this on a Mac computer. I am using Audacity 1.3.14.

Thanks a lot 
Brad Erhardt
