Sharing files, documents, videos, and images have been made easier in the past few decades via emails, faxes, and many other such platforms. To share audio with the same quality for Windows has not been quite the main focus of the software designers and developers. Here we are going to review a software that is hypothetically referred to as an audio device.
Virtual Audio Cable is a virtual audio device for Windows that allows the audio streams of various applications to be shared amongst each other. This software acts as an intermediary between two or more applications. Each cable that Virtual Audio Cable installs is actually a pair of software input and output devices. This setup is completely independent of your actual microphone and loudspeakers. But, the setup does not rely on them completely. The level of independence can be judged by the fact that you can use Virtual Audio Cable on a machine that has no hardware audio input and output devices.
What does it do?
It is just like a converter that helps you to convert one sound from a particular application to another one to be used in some other application. This way, one out coming audio becomes an incoming for the other one.
Some people will find it a little odd because there is no particular Window for the software. Rather, all the pairing has to be done from the settings of the applications you want to deal with. In one way this is a good thing because you do not have to go through the hassle of dragging or dropping the files from the application to the software, but for some people who like a more systematic approach, this is a tricky thing to get used to.
The control panel of the software is well-equipped. It is based on a very systematic approach where you can customize the sounds that are traveling through the virtual cables. You get to specify the number of worker threads, a number of cables, and audio format range along with the controlling of the stream buffer. The default settings of the software are just made to give you the idea of how things can be managed. You can alter them as per your requirements. One thing you will have to ensure is that the minimum hardware requirements on your audio may stutter the limit of your Windows.
There are a few recommendations users have made for the software. The sole purpose is to make Virtual Audio Cables a little more user-friendly and competitive. The software must be able to work with a lot more of the applications than it currently does. It is not compatible with the third-party applications which becomes a problem sometimes.
The designers and developers of the software come up with various changes, which need upgrading of the software at your end. Users must be able to make changes and upgrades from within the software, which is not the case here. You have to uninstall the current version and then reinstall to get the latest updates. This is quite a mess sometimes.

If the recommended changes can be made in the near future, this intermediary application can prove to be a groundbreaking the audio device. It allows links between virtual synthesizers and sound editors leading to a virtual studio environment. It is a worth trying software.
