Editors' review

This simple yet powerful utility behaves like a real audio cable, letting you transfer sound among applications. You can, for example, record sound from a game or from streaming Internet audio, or process the sound from one audio editor to another. The program gives you 64 virtual cables into which you can plug any application, mixing and distributing sound. (However, we should note the demo only will let you access two of them.) It even lets you make chains, connecting a whole series of software synthesizers, sound editors, sequencers, and recorders. To monitor the signal in your virtual cables, the program includes a control panel that displays the sample rate, channels, and number of connected applications. Perfectly designed for professionals, Virtual Audio Cable would be more useful for novices if it had a visual interface showing connected devices.

    "Ridiculously Annoying. Period."

    January 05, 2013   |   By the_muse77

    Version: Virtual Audio Cable 4.12

    Pros

    It's free.
    Super easy to install.
    Great way to integrate Winamp into Ventrilo.

    Cons

    The major problem I have here is that it has the "trial" announcement.

    Summary

    I downloaded this to make a "Jukebox" channel for my vent server. But there's this "trial" announcement every 10 seconds. It gets old REALLY fast. I'd recommend it, other than that. I could probably tolerate it if it was every 5 minutes, or even every 3 minutes. But no. Every 10 seconds. That killed it for me. One song into my raid, I had to stop everyone so that I could uninstall it. I do NOT recommend.

    "It's exactly what I'm looking for!"

    September 08, 2012   |   By Doctursea

    Version: Virtual Audio Cable 4.12

    Pros

    If you're a streamer it helps with skype calls, desktop audio, music, etc.

    If you don't have a natural stereo mix this is a great program.

    Easy to use

    Cons

    No free version

    The main website isn't put together well

    A little too pricey

    Summary

    I've been looking for a program like this for months, and this one sadly isn't well publicized. I can see this being used for streaming alot. Sadly the "trial" version can't be used one real streams, because it spam says "TRIAL" approximately every 10 seconds. It's a good program, sloppy but it'll get what you need done.

    "Insanely annoying"

    July 30, 2012   |   By Laithoron

    Version: Virtual Audio Cable 4.12

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    This will repeatedly say, "Trial" every 10 seconds until you can manage to get it successfully uninstalled.

    Summary

    MAKE CERTAIN that you do NOT have the virtual cable in use by any apps when you attempt to uninstall it, or the uninstall process will break and you'll be in for a world of pain.

    "Easy to use"

    June 14, 2012   |   By wdreeve

    Version: Virtual Audio Cable 4.12

    Pros

    I found the virtual audio cable to be very easy to setup and it worked very well. It is obvious many reviewers were too lazy to read the documentation or even try to understand what they were doing. The documentation is very good but you have to read it to understand it.

    Cons

    Too bad it's not free. The Trial version has an annoying voice announcement every few seconds.

    Summary

    Good product....

    "hard to use"

    May 07, 2012   |   By sean2009

    Version: Virtual Audio Cable 4.10

    Pros

    seems to be a good idea, but...

    Cons

    At first I don't know how to use it. It seems it is made by and for programmer. Then, as other people already said, trial voice repeated agian and again, very noisy.

    Summary

    I find another similar soft: http://www.virtualaudiostreaming.net/, may give a try and post reviews later.

    "Trial is not usable!"

    October 28, 2011   |   By JonBuoy

    Version: Virtual Audio Cable 4.10

    Pros

    Good setup configuration

    Cons

    The trial version randomly (1-5 sec interval) speaks "TRIAL" over the audio streams!!

    Can easily create a feedback loop that remains at bootup (prior to login) when an app such as Skype has defined one of the "cables" as an output device and "Stereo Mix" is an active "listen" device. Though easily corrected, it is QUITE THE SURPRISE after rebooting and returning at some later time and noticing that the speaker has been spewing white-ish noise from the feedback loop!

    OS is Windows 7.

    Summary

    The restriction on the trial version is MORE SEVERE than just only 2 cables, unless you like the female voice repeating "TRIAL"!
