    HELP!! Can't get Auzentech to work with Console for PC tuning.

    Basically what I'm trying to do here is I want to take a stereo signal being output by the computer and split it 3/4-way out of a Auzentech X-plosion card. I've read the wiki for setting up this process by using Console, Frequency Allocator, etc. This card doesn't have ASIO drivers so I've downloaded ASIO4ALL drivers and the card shows up on ASIO4ALL...



    After that, I proceed to Console and click AUDIO option. Then I click on AUDIO DEVICE tab then select ASIO for DRIVER TYPE then ASIO4ALL for DEVICE. After that I select the INTERNAL components...

    For now, I just need to get this working. How can I split this signal coming from WAVE IN to 3/4 channels (I want to go 3 or 4 way active by using Frequency Allocator, EQ, etc)? When I just connect the outputs from WAVE IN to the first 2 inputs for WAVE OUT (Pic below), all I get is noise and nothing else.

    When I apply a EQ in between, the noise gets EQ'ed but when I try to play music, the music playback doesn't seem to get effected. It seems as if the music playback is playing "over" Console and not being processed by Console. How do I take a simple signal being outputted by Windows and process it? I'm so confused and I've been trying to configure this for hours now. It's so frustrating!

    You need some form of 3rd party routing.

    Virtual Audio cable is one possible way.

    The other is spdif out looped back to the spdif input.

    Hey Durwood, I was hoping you'd chime in. Thank you!

    As for your suggestions, I have tried playing with VAC but I had no luck and I have no clue what I was doing. Would you mind expla

    VAC sorta simulates a sound card, allowing you to digitally transfer music data from program to program.

    you want to create 1 VAC, which will be your main input for audio to play thru.. in other words.. the output of say winamp will play to the VAC you setup. from this line, your VSThost will pick up the audio, process it, then you set the program to output to your sound card(which is now controlled by asio4all, each channel will have to be assigned to a particular plugin).

    I have tried that but I still can't get it to work in either Console or VSTHost. I don't know how to select IN and Outs in VSTHost.

    I'm going off of what he has here, but expanding on it. Hopefully it makes sense, I briefly tried it myself.
    http://www.thuneau.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=97

    1) Install ASIO4ALL
    2) Install VAC
    3) Setup TWO cables, first one make it 2 channels the second one make it 8 channels. Open VAC control panel and set "NC" for 1...8 on cable 2 to make it 8 channels.
    4) Open up ASIO4ALL control panel, go to advanced mode and enable both VAC1 and VAC2 (they should be green).
    5) Open up Windows control panel and set Primary card as VAC1
    6) Open up VAC's Audio Repeater app and set input for VAC2, output for your soundcard (auzentech). Set channel config to 6-8 channels depending on soundcard, wither use 7.1 or "custom" to do so, then press "start".
    7) Open up Console and go to the "Audio" button.
    8) Select "driver type" as ASIO
    9) Select "Device" as ASIO4ALL
    10) Click "Channel" and deactivate all VAC2 channels in the input side by clicking on it with the mouse and then go to the output side and deactivate VAC1 channels on the output side.
    11) Now you should be ready to wire things up in console.

    If this works or doesn't work please let me know, or make note of other steps you had to do to make it work. I would like to add this into the wiki for others.

    You could have bought a $100-$200 soundcard and it would have been easier and all the routing is built in to the drivers.

    What card did you pick up for $1500 and no JBL MS-8 for you? (BTW I saw your posts and it was delayed again?)

    you do that by configuring the ins and outs of each plugin. your very first plugin should take the input from VAC1 - channels 1 and 2(which is the output of winamp,etc). then you wire your plugins how you would like. Your last plugin(s) will need to route to VAC2 - channels 1-8 (which is connected to the output of your soundcard via audio repeater)

    as most plugins are stereo or mono only, you will have to use a plugin to cover each pair of outputs you have.

    On another note, durwood, That method does work. The only problems im having now are that im only getting 2ch output and the vsthost maximizes itself during opening.

    The 2ch problem only started happening after I had restarted my PC. Upon bootup into windows, it asked me to install the drivers for my sound card. After that, my PC no longer outputs to 6ch.

    VSTHost maximizes itself when loading all the plugins, despite having a shortcut open the program "minimized." Do you know of anything that forces the minimizing of the application?

    I haven't worked with VSTHost, I use Console. I'll have to try VSThost but I thought when I first tried it all I could ever get out of it was 2 channel so I didn't bother with it anymore at that point.

    AS far as maximize/minimize, you could use Autoit and make and EXE script file that loads your setting's and then minimizes the window maybe? That would be the route I would try. Then stick the EXE file into your startup folder.
