This is a workaround method if you are needing to use VAC (Virtual Audio cables) with V3- This method works for the last 2 alpha releases V3 0.10.00 and V3 0.11.0- this is a temp workaround until VAC is either added to V# or until a utility that convert VAC to TCI audio streams is in place

I apologize in advance for the overdone audio- it was a bit hot into OBS studio when I recorded it,

I tried this with using VB Cable as well and works also- so if you don't have VAC you can use VB-Cable

vb-audio.com/Cable/

attached screen shot of my VB-Cable settings, both Cable A and B are set same

Something isn't right with Audio in the new RigSync application.

What I found is this, sure use RigSync for CAT interface to TCI- But using this method of making VAC work in V3 that is setup one VAC cable for the soundcard lineout setting- and use another VAC for MIC input, then select PC for the Mic source and you can control the level. Not only does this seem to be much more stable, in other tests when using VARAC or VaraHF when looking at BPS transfer speed I have tripled my average bps using this VAC workaround method then using the RigSync application, so yes something isn't correct in the handoff of Virtual Audio to TCI via RigSync. Latency also seems to be slightly less with audio using this method as well over that done via RigSync
