Meter Potato (VMP) also gets my vote. I use it for many
tasks including running demodulated audio from SDRCv3 or
Linrad (for EME) to WSJT-X. I always found Sample Rate
Conversion artefacts when using VAC. It has a similar effect
to poor phase noise on weak signals with up to 2dB
degradation when compared to a radio (K3S or TS-890) and a
soundcard. This does not happen with VMP. I don’t know this
for sure, but I think if you use soundcard with a decent
clock such as a UMC202HD as the master output device this
becomes the reference clock. I could be wrong as this is not
made clear. However, I am sure that VMP is much better than
any other virtual soundcard solution that I could find 18
months ago. It also has ASIO on the virtual inputs which has
much lower latency and does not get mangled by Windows.
can monitor any signal via the main output device. Like a
real mixer it as solo buttons.
i use potatoe from the same company ... works superb
also downloaded vac plus vac_a and vac_b and hificable
so now have 4x vac besides the 3 that potatoe brings with ..
means 7 virtual cables used here together with the full blown
(and additionalli installed lighthost and a few vst plugins
to give my audio a better punch and sound)
so .. i can highly recommend the mixer and the virtual cables

Using a RSPdx with SDRC V3.1 and Laptop
All works aok but then I had the bright
idea to install VB Audio to get some VAC going so I could
run WSJT etc.
That went smooth and was able to make
many FB decodes overnight.
1. I wish there was a way to be able to
hear what the RSPdx is tuned WHILE it's audio is being
ported over to WSJT via the VAC. Is there an easy way of
monitoring what the VAC is transferring?
2. The next part has me scratching my
head......I am done with WSJT and just want to do some
listening on this W10 laptop with the RSPdx. When I go to
SDRC/OPTIONS/AUDIO/PLAYBACK/DEVICES I can see my Realtek
PC speakers on one line and the VAC on the 2nd line.
I select the Realtek PC speakers, hit
OK then re-start SDRC hoping to be able to hear the
receiver via the speakers but get zip. Is there an easy
way to switch from one to the other? I thought the OPTIONS
tab is where I make this selection but apparently not.
