As Vincent Burel, the founder and main software architect behind VB-Audio explains, the VB-CABLE is a simple virtual audio device presenting a single input and a single output. All audio sent to its input is forwarded to its output. Then it’s easy to create audio routes between any audio software by connecting player applications to recorder or capture, possibly passing through a DAW to process the sound or VoIP applications for recording or any inter-connection between different any audio tools.
VB-CABLE works just after installation, without the need for any configuration. Users can just select the input in one application and select the output in other application and the sound will be transmitted from the first one to the Second one. VB-CABLE for Mac is designed like the VB-CABLE for PC, supporting 1 to 8 channels in all standard sample rates from 44.100 Hz to 192 kHz.
"We are proud to finally propose this product for Mac as well. While VB-CABLE is already very used on PC as simple virtual audio device, for years many people have asked for this Mac version. But this was not so easy to develop since we wanted to make it as a first step for the Voicemeeter (ed: the company's Audio Mixer application) porting process, that we would like to realize before end of year 2020," says Vincent Burel.
The VB-CABLE virtual audio device is available for free to test and simple donationware on www.vb-cable.com while the VB-CABLE A+B package is distributed as donationware for download. VB-Audio CABLE A&B works like two Audio Drivers for two independent virtual audio cables to connect more applications together. There's also VB-Audio CABLE C&D to add two more independent Virtual Audio Cables connections. This should be released in July 2020.
