Then this feeds any media server with Audio capture (say VLC or Unreal).
It looks like a sound card driver, except you can define up to 256
"cables" and each input looks like a soundcard playback to your
applications and each output looks like a capture source, and one cable
output can be connected to by several applications (which a real sound
card capture source can't).
I use VAC on Windows to connect output of PC DSP SDR to DReaM or MixW
for digital modes reception, as the all the SDR on their own only seem
to do old fashioned FM, AM, SSB & CW audio to speaker.
When I have time I may try and figure how to use my 192kHz sampling
PCMCIA SoundBlaster and some Linux SDR SW, though I haven't found any
yet that is comprehensible.
