Request about messy VAIO names

Postby piflyon » Tue Jul 21, 2020 3:26 pm

Hi to whom rules the audio world ! (Si besoin je peux tout écrire en français, mais dans le doute....)

I have a request about virtual cables names.
It is really difficult to select the right Input/Output because their names are not consistent.
I use Potatoe on Windows 10

VAIO 1 -> is named VB-audio VoiceMeeter VAIO
VAIO 2 -> is named VB-Audio Voicemeeter VAIO Aux
VAIO 3 -> is named VAIO 3

The difficulty increases as the names are really long, and in some softwares I can't even see the end of the name of the input/Output (the relevant part !).
Could you change that ? Or teach me how to rename these peripherals simplier (VAIO 1, VAIO 2, VAIO 3). The same in Potatoe (at the top of the tracks).

Idem for Cable A,B,C,D... I don't get the same names depending on the software. In Caprice (Amstrad emulator) I get for instance 2 Cable D :
-Cable-D Input (VB-Audio Cable D)
-Cable-D Input (VB-Audio Virtual Cable)
I have not clue of what can be the difference between these two inputs. The same for cable B & C. Cable A ? I don't find it. Maybe it has another name...

I don't know how to put an image in the forum, but believe me : it's a real mess and a real pain to set things up (i use 7 tracks on Potatoe).

I would be very happy if you could clean names, make them shorter ("VB-Audio" instead of "Voicemeeter VB-Audio").

Even writing this post took me a long time because of shearching the names :lol: , I hope you have some idea or plan to make these names easier to find/understand. :geek:
Thank you !
PS: I have some request about Potatoe, but I will write them in the appropriate forum :)

I agree. The naming conventions confuse me as well.

I use Potato. If it were up to me, I'd recommend something like:
Inputs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 (where 6, 7, and 8 are virtual)
Outputs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 (where 6, 7, and 8 are virtual)

Virtual cable recording / playback devices. VC = Virtual Cable. VP = Voicemeeter Potato.
