Getting Started with Microsoft Windows 7/8/10

Windows 7/8/10 333D01 Sensor Setup:

  1. Plug the Smart Sensor (333D01) into a USB port on your PC.
  1. Windows should automatically detect and install the device drivers. A notification will populate in the lower right-hand corner. Sometimes the notification will not populate, don’t worry. The drivers will still be installed automatically.
  1. Right-click on the speaker icon in the notification tray.
  1. Select “Recording Devices” from the menu.
  1. Clicking on “Recording Devices” will open up the Sound Menu. There will be a new “Microphone” there labeled “333D01 1XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX” where X will be numbers specific to your sensor.

    (Note: If you have a pre-production sensor, it may populate as TMS 333D)
  1. Click the device in the Sound Menu, which will highlight it. Then click the “Set Default” button near the bottom to set the sensor as the default recording device so that it will remain active. There should be a green check mark next to the name of the microphone. (You can tap the sensor at this point and there should be activity in the amplitude meter.)
  1. Next, click the “Properties” button next to the “Set Default” button.
  1. Select the “Advanced” tab under Microphone Properties.
  1. Select a sample rate of 48,000 Hz and 24 bit (Studio Quality).
  1. Save these settings by clicking the “OK” button until the windows are all closed.
  1. Use the application of your choice to measure the sensor’s input. For a list of applications visit our Software page.
