Build an audio ecosystem
Virtual Audio Cable (VAC) by Eugene Muzychenko is a licensed application that lets you build input and output links for your software’s sounds. This process is done through the application’s settings without the need to use any hardware.
Wires no more
Why would you have a physical audio connection when you can have a virtual one? VAC helps create virtual audio connections. Its learning curve. however, is a barrier.
When you use VAC to create a virtual cable to transfer audio, there should be no worry of latency in the link when it connects to an application. You will find the quality of the output to be the same as the input. However, the software is rather difficult to use.
Even though it has a user manual, unlike VB-Cable, VAC falls short in every way when considering design. The interface is poorly designed and has little appeal. Its use of excessive jargon is also off-putting.
VB-Cable and Voicemeeter are free, while VAC is not. All three lack compatibility across platforms, unfortunately. Voicemeeter has the most attractive design among the three alternatives.
Where can you run this program?
You can use it on computers running Windows XP or later.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes, both VB Cable and Voicemeeter are free to use while offering different settings. They are more beginner-friendly. You can also use hardware connections with VM and VB, so you have more flexibility in audio links. They work much like each other and offer few, minor changes.
Overall, it is a solid program if you have the technical capability to understand the language used in the program. Once you know how to use it, the app becomes a powerful tool capable of delivering the highest quality.
Should you download it?
No. The alternative programs are a better choice.
- Low latency
- High quality
- No hardware required
- User manual
- Difficult to use
- Lack of compatibility
