Windows installation instructions for SP-MULTITRACK-12 (Note: if you are using Windows XP, please call 609-267-4400)

To install the driver and setup your new interface, please complete the following:

1 - Download the latest Windows drivers here:

2 - Run the file you downloaded above. Restart your computer once this has finished.

3 - Plug the A/C adapter into a wall output or power strip. Plug the USB cable provided into the USB port on the interface and the other end into the USB port you intend to use on your computer and allow the interface to install. This will take a few moments. Plug a microphone into each of the microphone connectors that you will be using.

4 - Plug a pair of headphones into the computers headphone jack. On your Taskbar, look for your speaker icon (that you would normally click on to adjust your audio volume). Right-click on the speaker icon and select "Sounds". When the Sound window opens, click on the "playback" tab. Find your computers soundcard in the list (it may be called Realtek, Connexant, or something other than "Andrea"). Right click on this soundcard and select "set as default device". It will now have the check mark next to it.

5 - Click on the "Recording' tab. You should see each soundcard listed with the word "Andrea" in the description. Double-left-click on the first one and click on the "Listen" tab. Put a check in the box labeled "Listen to this device". Click on the "Levels" tab. Raise the level control to 100. Click OK. Repeat these step for each "Andrea" soundcard listed. Note: the "Listen to this device" check box turns on the monitoring so that you can hear the mic plugged into that particular soundcard in your headphones. If there are any microphones that you do NOT want to monitor, you can un-check this box and you will not monitor this mic. ALL microphones are RECORDED regardless of the setting on the "Listen" box. Click OK to close the sound box.

6 - This completes the standard driver installation and setup. Please open Eclipse. Here are the recommended parameters for setting up your software for recording:

Audio Input Device (or recording device): Andrea USB Audio Device
File Format: PCM (or WAVE)
Sample Rate: 22,050Hz or GSM (if you need smaller files)
