Here we go...

Click the image to open in full size.

Got it working with LiveProfessor as host, a couple of VST plugins (a spectum analyser and a parametric equalizer) and Virtual Audio Cable.

A fair bit of stuffing around to get it right, but has potential - if it can all be started up on boot

Why the heck someone doesnt create a program to package up something like this nicely is beyond me... it would be a killer app.

Wow, and after beating my head against a wall with these darn VST things and reading the pain of your experience, I think I'll look for a different way!

That Live Professor software looks interesting, but does it do what I want: i.e. take audio from any player and process it through a VST plug in before leaving the PC? I'd love to be able to use some of the great looking parametric equalizers that VST plug ins do - but only seem to exist for line IN.
J River does exactly that......vst host, peq, a convolver and audio routing in one. Oh, it plays music and movies too

Another thumbs up for J River.. I'm running MC17 - not doing anything this sophisticated, but I've used it for a long time now - extremely versatile and stable too. (win 7)

Live Professor is my favorite,I wish there was a Linux version though.

I will have to check out that J River as well,I have never seen that one before.

The thing is, that I don't want to use JRiver or Foobar to play my media - most of it is streamed from the likes of Zune, Grooveshark (a mixed bag, but free),etc

I need it to be standalone.

What do you now use to play files streamed from the Zune or Grooveshark? If the tools used to play these files use windows system audio as the only option you may not be able to route them as required..

Thats where VAC with 2 virtual cables is used.

The first cable is set to the default playback device, and that is routed into the input of the VST host, the second virtual cable goes from the output of the VST host back to the real sound output (in my test pc upstairs, its a Realtek onboard audio).

There may be glitches that I havent come across yet (it was getting late at night), but it did a good job of streaming Grooveshark through the VST host and out to the soundcard. I'll check that it does indeed do all audio from all apps tonight.

Grooveshark is of course a browser based app.

Forgot to mention that ASIO4ALL was also needed.

That makes sense and I guess that is how you are able to connect the virtual cable to the source..
