Ubuntu – Virtual Audio Cable For Ubuntu


I am looking for a Virtual Audio Cable program to pipe audio through. Surely there must be a Linux version or something similar to these awesome Windows programs…

I looked and found one called vsound for Linux…

But it hasn't been updated in almost 11 years so yeah.

I had thought JACK was the answer, but it is rather difficult to use. I mainly want a virtual soundcard that works in conjunction with a hardware soundcard.

  • One virtual audio cable (VAC), that's free, open source and works on Linux, Windows and OSX is jackaudio.

    You can download the source code from here on the jackaudio website

    You can install it via apt-get:

    sudo apt-get install jack

    A GUI tool to use with it is qjackctl

    sudo apt-get install qjackctl
