Audacity/Zoom real-time mixing

Mac 10.12.6 Sierra
Audacity 2.4.2


I want to run audacity and the Zoom conferencing tool simultaneously on the Mac. Audacity will be playing a backing track with me singing into a USB mic, a Rode Podcaster. Is there a way to mix the sound within the mac, so that the rest of the Zoom attendees (and I on local headphones) can hear the mix in real time? The [clumsy] alternative would be to put a speaker on the Mac’s headphone jack.

Thanks in advance. Arthur.

It’s been my experience that there is no “Zoom and…”

Zoom will do everything in its power to make sure it’s sending your microphone clean and receiving the group’s sound clean.

There was a recent post where a conference app actually took down a meeting because it couldn’t maintain exclusive control. When it came back up, all the user changes were gone.
