VoicemeeterRemote API is given by a simple standard DLL file for Windows to control Voicemeeter Audio Engine by another application, programmed in any language. It allows using voicemeeter functions and take advantage of Voicemeeter features in a client application. For example to make a more adapted user interface to a specific workflow, or to simply make a macro command to set different parameters at once, change the devices configuration and any kind of automation…

VoicemeeterRemote API also provides AUDIO API to process audio inside Voicemeeter through a simple callback mechanism.

Signal interoperability is given by existing audio interfaces (MME, KS, WASAPI, Direct-X, ASIO) and also a specific AUDIO API. Programmer can use Voicemeeter Virtual I/O to send or get Audio signal. He can also use Voicemeeter ASIO Insert Virtual Driver to process signal inside Voicemeeter Banana on all input strips.

Included In the VoicemeeterRemote API Package:
- VoicemeeterRemote.h (Reference ‘C’ Header file)
- VoicemeeterRemoteAPI.pdf (current documentation).

DOCUMENTATION DIRECT LINK:

- Example0: Win 32/64 bits client Application example (in ‘C’) showing the different
communication mechanisms (executable and source code).

- vmr_matrix: Win 32/64 bits client Application example of Audio Processing Object inserted
on a selected BUS to provide a 8x8 gain matrix (executable and source code).

- Some Script: different text file changing different group of parameters.

REM: VoicemeeterRemote.dll & VoicemeeterRemote64.dll are installed with Voicemeeter (in the same folder of Voicemeeter application).

Where is VoicemeeterRemote.dll ?

VoicemeeterRemote.dll is in the same direcctory of Voicemeeter (done since package 2.0.2.3).

as it is shown in the vmr_client.c source code, the VoicemeeterRemote.dll can be found by the UNINSTALLATION key in the registry:

Code: Select all

static char uninstDirKey[]="SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Uninstall";

#define INSTALLER_UNINST_KEY	"VB:Voicemeeter {17359A74-1236-5467}"

void RemoveNameInPath(char * szPath)
{
	long ll;
	ll=(long)strlen(szPath);
	while ((ll>0) && (szPath[ll]!='\\')) ll--;
	if (szPath[ll] == '\\') szPath[ll]=0;
}

#ifndef KEY_WOW64_32KEY
	#define KEY_WOW64_32KEY 0x0200
#endif

BOOL __cdecl RegistryGetVoicemeeterFolder(char * szDir)
{
	char szKey[256];
	char sss[1024];
	DWORD nnsize=1024;
	HKEY hkResult;
	LONG rep;
	DWORD pptype=REG_SZ;
	sss[0]=0;

	// build Voicemeeter uninstallation key
	strcpy(szKey,uninstDirKey);
	strcat(szKey,"\\");
	strcat(szKey,INSTALLER_UNINST_KEY);

	// open key
	rep=RegOpenKeyEx(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,szKey,0, KEY_READ, &hkResult);
	if (rep != ERROR_SUCCESS)
	{
		// if not present we consider running in 64bit mode and force to read 32bit registry
		rep=RegOpenKeyEx(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,szKey,0, KEY_READ | KEY_WOW64_32KEY, &hkResult); 
	}
	if (rep != ERROR_SUCCESS) return FALSE;
	// read uninstall profram path
	rep=RegQueryValueEx(hkResult,"UninstallString",0,&pptype,(unsigned char *)sss,&nnsize);
	RegCloseKey(hkResult);
	
	if (pptype != REG_SZ) return FALSE;
	if (rep != ERROR_SUCCESS) return FALSE;
	// remove name to get the path only
	RemoveNameInPath(sss);
	if (nnsize>512) nnsize=512;
	strncpy(szDir,sss,nnsize);
	
	return TRUE;
}
The Dynamic Link To VoicemeeterRemote.dll is made by the function InitializeDLLInterfaces:

Code: Select all

long InitializeDLLInterfaces(void)
{
	char szDllName[1024];
	memset(&iVMR,0,sizeof(T_VBVMR_INTERFACE));

	//get folder where is installed Voicemeeter
	if (RegistryGetVoicemeeterFolder(szDllName) == FALSE) 
	{
		// voicemeeter not installed
		return -100; 
	}
	//use right dll according O/S type
	if (sizeof(void*) == 8) strcat(szDllName,"\\VoicemeeterRemote64.dll");
	else strcat(szDllName,"\\VoicemeeterRemote.dll");
		
	// Load Dll
	G_H_Module=LoadLibrary(szDllName);

How to Change Voicemeeter Parameters ?

Posted: Fri Sep 04, 2015 10:04 am
by Vincent Burel
VoicemeeterRemote API allows changing parameters by simple text request

with single request function: here to mute the first strip of Voicemeeter:

Code: Select all

iVMR.VBVMR_SetParameterFloat("Strip[0].mute", 1.0f);
with script request function: to send several request in the same time:

Code: Select all

iVMR.VBVMR_SetParameters("Strip[0].gain=-30.0;Strip[0].mute=0\n"
	"Strip[1].gain=-30.0;Strip[1].mute=0\n"
	"Strip[2].gain=-30.0;Strip[2].mute=0\n");
in the VoicemeeterRemoteAPI package, vmr_client program exemple is also given with several script file to make some test, like TestStrip.txt

Strip[0].mono=0;
Strip[0].Mute=0;
Strip[0].solo=0;
Strip[0].gain=0;
Strip[0].pan_x=0;
Strip[0].pan_y=0;
Strip[0].color_x=0;
Strip[0].color_y=0;
Strip[0].fx_x=0;
Strip[0].fx_y=0;
Strip[0].comp=0;
Strip[0].gate=0;

Strip[1].mono=0;
Strip[1].Mute=0;
Strip[1].solo=0;
Strip[1].gain=0;
Strip[1].pan_x=0;
Strip[1].pan_y=0;
Strip[1].color_x=0;
Strip[1].color_y=0;
Strip[1].fx_x=0;
Strip[1].fx_y=0;
Strip[1].comp=0;
Strip[1].gate=0;

Strip[2].mono = 0;
Strip[2].Mute = 0;
Strip[2].solo= 0;
Strip[2].gain= 0;
Strip[2].pan_x= 0;
Strip[2].pan_y =0;
Strip[2].color_x= 0;
Strip[2].color_y = 0;
Strip[2].fx_x = 0;
Strip[2].fx_y = 0;
Strip[2].comp = 0;
Strip[2].gate = 0;

Strip[3].mc=0;
Strip[3].Mute=0;
Strip[3].solo=0;
Strip[3].gain=0;
Strip[3].pan_x=0;
Strip[3].pan_y=0;
Strip[3].EQgain1=0.0;
Strip[3].EQgain2=0.0;
Strip[3].EQgain3=0.0;

Strip[4].mc=0;
Strip[4].Mute=0;
Strip[4].solo=0;
Strip[4].gain=0;
Strip[4].pan_x=0;
Strip[4].pan_y=0;
Strip[4].EQgain1=0.0;
Strip[4].EQgain2=0.0;
Strip[4].EQgain3=0.0;
