I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

I would use Soundflower and make the output and input Soundflower via the “Sounds” preference pane in System Preferences.

Method 2

I would use Soundflower with Audacity.

Soundflower is a Mac OS X (10.2 and later) system extension that
allows applications to pass audio to other applications. Soundflower
is easy to use, it simply presents itself as an audio device, allowing
any audio application to send and receive audio with no other support
needed. Soundflower is free, open-source, and runs on Mac Intel and
PPC computers.

sounds. It is available for Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux,
and other operating systems.

Record any audio – three simple words to explain Audio Hijack Pro.
Record from applications like iTunes, Skype or DVD Player. Record from
microphones, Radiosharks and other hardware. If you hear it, you can
record it.

Method 4

WireTap Studio.

Using WireTap Studio, you can record the discrete audio output of any
application, as well as all system audio, or record audio input from
any microphone, line-in, or audio input hardware.

If you can hear it, WireTap Studio can record it.

Once you have recorded your audio, you can easily organize your
recordings in the convenient Recording Library, and edit them with
WireTap Studio’s integrated lossless audio editor.
