How V4W works
What actually is ViPER4Windows? Is it a virtual sound card, like SRS , or what?

ViPER4Windows is an “APO”. APO stands for “Audio Processing Object”. APO is designed by Microsoft. It is an audio processing framework that can be loaded onto any sound card.

Comparison between APO and SRS Virtual Sound Card:

APO SRS Virtual Sound Card
Supported system Vista or above All
Global effect Yes Yes
Stability Very stable Easy to get BSOD
Compatible with other effects All Only specific effects
System compatibility Very good Poor

  1. Works great on lenovo G580 3rd gen C-i5. Need a good quality headphone to really get the difference. Keep up your great work. M tuned in for updates. Thanks.

    1. You must run the control pannel as administrator, to do so, go to your install directory and right click on ViPER4WindowsCtrlPanel.exe and click Properties -> Compability. When you are in that tab select run as administrator and click OK. Then ViPER4WindowsCtrlPanel will always run as admin, and saving the settings will be no problem.

  2. Can you please make a list of supported Realtek drivers? That would be easier for us to see if our drivers are the problem! Thanks man, I love V4A so I would love to try this out on windows to see what kind of music I can squeeze out of my little subwoofer :-)
