  • VB-Audio Virtual Cable

  • VB-Audio CABLE is a Windows Audio Driver working as a Virtual Audio Cable. After installing the VB-CABLE driver, a new playback device appears in the audio device list and can be set as default device. VB-CABLE can be set as the default device, just like any regular audio device. The Configure and Properties buttons allow to setup multi-channel features and device sound quality. All signal coming in the CABLE input is going to the CABLE output. This makes it simple to record the audio stream using some other application. »

  • Advanced Linux Sound Architecture

  • Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (known by the acronym ALSA) is a free and open source software framework that provides an API for device drivers for sound cards. Some of the goals of the ALSA project at its inception were automatic configuration of sound-card hardware, and graceful handling of multiple sound devices in a system, goals which it has largely met. A couple of different frameworks, such as JACK, use ALSA to allow performing low-latency professional-grade audio editing and mixing.

  • Dante Via

  • Dante Via can intercept the audio from your professional audio applications and makes those application's inputs and outputs available to the Dante network. You can use two copies of Dante Via to interconnect two ordinary PCs or Macs and share audio between them. Or you can interface your audio apps with professional Dante audio gear, over the network. Dante via can also expose your computers audio inputs and outputs to the Dante network.

  • Dante Virtual Soundcard

  • Dante Virtual Soundcard turns your computer into a Dante-powered workstation, seamlessly integrating your PC or Mac with Dante audio devices on your network. Since Dante doesn't require any special network hardware, all you need is a common ethernet interface.Dante Virtual Soundcard creates virtual (ASIO and MME on Windows, CoreAudio on Mac) soundcards on your system, that can be routed in your Dante network. If there is no dante hardware or Dante VIA in your network, DVS can't be used between 2 computers, this is because DVS can't be the clock master of a Dante network. »
