Virtual Audio Cable is one of the most widely-used (but niched, at the same time) software solutions that are specialized in providing seamless integration with various audio interfaces and organizing these devices as effectively as possible.
While its very name is already enough of a suggestion to figure out what it does, this tool is actually a software device that emulates an audio cable. So it does everything that a real audio cable is capable of doing, but as lines of code on your Windows 10 computer.
Therefore, Virtual Audio Cable takes all the audio signals that reach its CABLE input and routes them to its CABLE output, much like what happens in real life.
Users are then capable of making computer recordings in a much easier way without going through endless configuration operations, but also perform some unusual tasks such as connecting a software audio player to a recording utility.
Getting a bit more technical, it’s worth mentioning that Virtual Audio Cable comes with a multi-format audio engine, which makes it possible for this tool to work with audio applications that use WASAPI, KS, DX, KS or MME interfaces.
Although Virtual Audio Cable is a free software solution (well, the correct term would be donationware), this version is limited to personal use.
However, the developers also provide you with other options, especially if you’re interested in volume licensing, commercial distribution and even company deployment.
