I am sort of new to AE and I was needing to know how to preview audio on a Mac(Apple), how do I do that?
What version of AE are you running? Previews are very different depending on what version of AE you're using.
If it's CC 2015, read this: all about previews in After Effects CC 2015 (13.5) | After Effects region of interest
