Can I route audio from Cakewalk to another program on my PC?

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

I'd like to use Cakewalk's audio processing capabilities and have the audio recorded to another program on my PC.

Is it possible to route the audio out from cakewalk (on a windows system)?

Thanks a lot,

Roy.

on the CbB side - you would set it to WASAPI Shared so other programs may access the audio from Windows output. depending on the program, you might find that enough.  otherwise if you're using a mixer, you may be able to use physical patching to make it work. there are several software products out there which allow you to flexibly route audio between apps.

You may want to check out Virtual Audio Cable.

VB-CABLE is a virtual audio device working as virtual audio cable. All audio coming in the CABLE input is simply forwarded to the CABLE output.

Thank you very much @Glenn Stanton and @Jim Fogle

I got VB-CABLE to work for me, it has a delay as it's not ASIO, but It's getting me somewhere..

I've seen it's also possible with ASIO, I'll try it as well.

Thanks so much again!

Roy.

One of the reasons ASIO is so efficient is that it doesn't support and therefore doesn't have to deal with multiple data streams from multiple programs. The trade-off is that you can only have one ASIO device active at a time. That's why Glenn suggested WASAPI Shared. Although not quite as fast as ASIO (but close enough), it can deal with multiple sources concurrently. That's how Skype can "ring" even though you're listening to music or watching a YouTube video.

I've never used it myself, so I don't know: isn't ReWire supposed to be able to do this, depending on the other program also supporting it?
