Default VST for Windows 7 System Audio?

Does anyone know if I can run VST plugins directly through PC sound output? Whereas, all audio sent out of Windows 7 to my usb DAC would first pass through a VST plugin?
Thanks for any suggestions!

Default Excellent!

That is exactly the sort of thing I was looking for!
However, the page you linked won't load, so i found this:
SAVIHost

I'll try it on my home Win7 machine later today.

Well, I've got the host running and it's running my Electri-Q VSt plugin, but I can't seem to get it to affect what I'm hearing.
gazza49 are you familiar with SAVIHost? What has been your experience?
Thanks!

You need to route your output from your media player to the plugin´s input
Depending on your media player of choice( Does it have Asio output) and your sond car driver this can be more or less complicated.
For a general solution but also rather complex look here;

Default Squeezebox Server, etc.

The tricky part of my setup is that I use the Slim Devices Squeezebox Server (now Logitech Media Server) as my main conduit for listening to music.
  • one Squeezebox 2 player in the main stereo rig in one room
  • music stored on the primary PC in an adjacent room
  • Logitech Media Server running on the same PC
  • software version of a Squeezebox Player also running (sync'ed to the SB2) on the main PC
  • PC sends audio out through a USB DAC (currently a Behringer UCA202)

I know that things would be a lot easier if I just played music through foobar2000. But I need to synchronize the two rooms through the music server, which currently works very well for playing locally stored music.

I've tried the Inguz plugin in the past and found it too cumbersome. I don't know if one can isolate just one player to use Inguz and still be able to sync.

So the bottom line is I'd like to be able to EQ-tweak the speakers in the PC room for a little more high frequency extension, while maintaining the synchronized music in two rooms.

Clear as mud.

Thumbs up Eureka!

Thanks, Boris. That looks like a good solution from a reputable company. I was all set to try it out (even buy it [gasp]), but decided to give Virtual Audio Cable a try first, based on the extensive documentation. The DDMF page was comparatively scant on details...

Wow, am I glad I tried it -- it works great, so I went ahead with the full version.
I have it routing the sound through my favorite EQ using SaviHost and don't see any problems!
It's too late to really run it through its paces to compare the sound quality of this new setup compared to without, but things look promising.

Thanks to all who contributed to the thread!

Great, I'm glad it worked out for you!
I tried out DDMF and it was actually really bad. It kept crashing and never worked right. Their concept is good but the product is not ready for prime time.

I remember having trouble with Virtual Audio in the past but I will give it another try one of these days.
