Brief Description of Virtual Audio Cable (VAC)
Virtual Audio Cable (VAC) is intended to connect several audio applications together in real time. It’s like a sound card with hardwired input and output: when an application sends an audio stream to a virtual cable, other applications can record this stream from the other cable end. Thus, you can record and process output of almost any audio application by almost any other audio application. VAC operates like TotalRecorder but is more universal. Use it to create a chains of software synthesizers (Generator, Reality), audio processors, recorders (WaveLab, Sound Forge), sequencers (Cakewalk, Cubase) etc. VAC works under Win95/98/ME/NT4/2k/XP. Under Win95/98/ME, DirectSound is supported.

Virtual Audio Cable comes in two versions Trial and Full
I first installed trail version but when you start recording using it you will hear trail version in female voice every 5 seconds. So, it is impossible for anybody to continue using trail 🙁
Full version costs you 30 US Dollars.
