Voicemeeter Potato (VMP) is here!

Postby w-u-2-o » Sat Nov 10, 2018 1:13 pm

Potato adds a third virtual channel so that we will be able to mix VAC1 (RX1) and VAC2 (RX2) audio together. Or be able to mix and route to two different digi mode programs independently. Or whatever!

There are a bunch of other new features as well, but those are mostly of interest to podcasters. Personally, I would have preferred a fourth virtual channel over more hardware inputs, but I don't write the code!

I'm waiting for the final release before migrating from Banana ;)

Yes, running it here now! It is much improved over Banana. The new drivers are VERY fast. I put VAC1 with ASIO on VAIO3 and VAC2 with WDM/KS on AUX. Then I tuned in the same station on RX1 and RX2. There is now only the tiniest perceptible delay between the two.

With both VAC1 and VAC2 simultaneously into VMP (<--Voicemeeter Potato :D ) I can now more easily utilize RX1 and RX2.

I connect all my digi mode software to the VAIO channel (I hate the channel names) and can easily route audio to/from either RX1 or RX2. It's great! And of course I have my mic and speakers attached with ASIO to hardware input and output A1.

I'm also using VBAN to send audio to my phone and tablet so I can listen when I'm not in the studio. Sometimes I do this with Chromecast, too.

73!

I also have it in operation now and it seems to work very well :)
I don’t suffer from insanity, I enjoy every second of it!

My Ryzen based PC does not seem to like potato at all ( a bit Ironic since I'm Irish) . Computer froze and even blue screened at one point. Back to voicemeeter banana for this cowboy for now.

You should drop VB Audio a line on Facebook. I've found them to be quite responsive.
