I don't think you are thinking about this in quite the right way.

MSVAD appears to the system as an audio device.  It looks like another
sound card, or another microphone.  As a sound source, it is expected to
generate its own data.  There is no easy way for one audio source driver
to pull data from another audio source driver.  What you would end out
doing is having your application connect to the real microphone, read
the data, do your processing, and feed the modified data back down to
your MSVAD driver, so that it could then feed the modified data to other
applications.  That's a lot of error-prone work.  Any time a kernel
driver has to rely on a user-mode application to do its job, you
introduce many complications.

In my opinion, Sam has the right idea.  Write a lower filter to ks.sys,
or an upper class filter for media class.  Put your algorithm there.
