Here is a way to add software reverb to the output of the soundcard, for people
who don't have a hardware reverb unit !
Good to have a cathedral sound
1) Simple solution : works for Creative Sound Blaster Live! soundcards.
Use the driver Audiotorium effect in the Control Panel of the Sound Blaster Live!
2) Other solution.
Install a VSTHOST : http://www.hermannseib.com/english/vsthost.htm
Install a VST reverb : Freeverb for example http://www.sonicspot.com/freeverb/freeverb2.zip
[There may be newer versions of these softwares. It works with these version but feel free
to experiment other versions !]
Then two cases :
* You have a "What you hear", or "Wave" input on your soundcard (you can see this by loading the Windows
mixer and by showing the Record inputs in the Options/Properties/Recording menu)... Then choose in
VSTHOST this input as input
and the standard audio Out as output... Then load the VST reverb.
* You don't have such an input. Then install Virtual Audio Cable.http://software.muzychenko.net/eng/vac.html
Choose "Virtual Cable 1" as Output in your organ Software (MyOrgan, Soundfont, Hauptwerk, etc.)
Run VSTHOST and Choose "Virtual Cable 1" as Input and your standard soundcard ouptput as output...
Then load the VST and set a non-zero output volume !
PS : 1) Please tell me if you know a simpler solution
2) If you know a freeware equivalent to Virtual Audio Cable, it would be good !
