Voicemeeter Package will include a new diagnostic tool to check if the Audio Drivers are well installed (MARCH 2021 update)
this application is installed with last Voicemeeter and can also be downloaded directly there:

Just run it and read the CONCLUSION at the end of the log.

Code: Select all

CHECKING VB-Audio Virtual Cable : Not Installed
CHECKING VB-Audio Cable A : Not Installed
CHECKING VB-Audio Cable B : Not Installed
CHECKING VB-Audio Cable C : Not Installed
CHECKING VB-Audio Cable D : Not Installed
CHECKING VB-Audio MT128 Virtual I/O : Not Installed
CHECKING VB-Audio Hi-Fi Cable : Not Installed

TEST DATE: 2021/02/23 - 06:41:01 (Checker Version 1.0.7.4)
Operating System: WIN 10 64Bits Build: 19042
CONCLUSION: OK (nothing bad detected)
if the VB-Audio Device Cheker is detecting error, it will invite you to re-install audio drivers:
(except if the error is just a bad version number: the VB-Audo Virtual Driver is not updated, but can work correct anyway).

------------------------------------------------------------------
TEST DATE: 2021/02/22 - 17:47:50 (Checker Version 1.0.7.4)
Operating System: WIN 10 64Bits Build: 19042
CONCLUSION: 6 error detected (You may consider re-installing audio drivers)
In this example above, the VB-CABLE is not correctly installed (error coming with Windows10 20H2 update), so you may
- de-install it + REBOOT
- run again this Device Installation Checker to see if there is not another audio driver to de-install
- REBOOT after each de-installation and run this DeviceChecker app.
- Then re-install the audio driver + REBOOT
- run again this Device Installation Checker to see if installation is ok and if there is no new error.


MANUAL DE-INSTALLATION
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
In some cases, audio driver can be bad installed or partially de-installed and prevent to have an audio system running correctly.

Before re-installing our VB-CABLE or Voicemeeter, it's important to check that the related audio drivers are correctly removed from the system, in the Windows Control Panel / Device Manager:

if you find some part of it in the Device Manager, you may right click on it (to get contextual menu) to de-install it manually, by the windows procedure.
Start by the Sound Controllers (and reboot after)... then check the Audio I/O and possibly remove them by the same way (right click on it and deinstall device).

After a last REBOOT (PC restart) if the Device manager shows nothing else, you can re-install our VB-CABLE or Voicemeeter (and don't forget to REBOOT your computer after).

Are VB-Audio Virtual Devices Well Installed ?

Post by Vincent Burel »

Recommeded re-installation step by step:
1- unplug all USB audio device + REBOOT.
2- de-install VB-CABLE one by one + REBOOT
3- de-install Voicemeeter + REBOOT
4- check your remaining audio devices are working ok.
5- check there is no presence of our virtual audio driver in Windows Device Manager (in both sections: multimedia controller and audio input output).

THIS IS THE CRITICAL POINT: you may find no reference to Voicemeeter (or VB-CABLE) in Windows Device Manager
(nor in Multimedia controller, nor in audio i/o section).


6- re-install VB-CABLE and Voicemeeter one by one , REBOOT after each operation, check your device list in Windows Sound Dialog box.
7- when all is re-installed, re-plug your USB audio device. check again your default playback and recording device
8- Run Voicemeeter and check systray option. Audio should work again correctly.

Anyway your VB-CABLE or Voicemeeter VAIO's must appear like on the picture below for Playback and Recording Devices. Otherwise you should re-install them correctly.

Missing input or output device ?

even after re-installation it is missign an input pin or an output pin?

SOLUTION: Check the Enable / Disable Status of your audio device in the sound control center.

The original post from Jan. 2019 says that this tool will be included with Voicemeeter. I have downloaded and tested Voicemeeter, VM Banana and VM Potato, as well as Virtual Audio Cable and Hi-FI Cable/ASIO Bridge. I have also installed and tested MT32SPLite.

I have not seen this tool until I found it here. O_o

Perhaps it was forgotten? Perhaps it is old and deprecated?

Anyway, I downloaded it and it worked. It found a problem with VB-Audio Virtual Cable, which I uninstalled/reinstalled and now the tool shows no problem.

I tried again today to uninstall / install per instructions and the same audio glitch and visual glitch occur. I think it's Windows just being corrupted somewhere with that recent update. I have the latest software versions.

you may de-install Voicemeeter and VB-CABLE... +REBOOT
then finish to de-install them manually in the Device Manager as explained in first message... +REBOOT

then install them step by step. with a REBOOT and checking after each install.

That's what I've done, twice.
The only difference is when I uninstall VB-CABLEs, they are no longer in the Device Manager so there's nothing to remove there.
