Audio Tool Capabilities

Before using Audio Tool, make sure that your machine supports, at a minimum, basic (monaural) audio capabilities and that a speaker and microphone are installed. Refer to your system's documentation for this information.

Many computers support stereo and higher-quality audio, such as CD and DAT quality. Audio Tool automatically recognizes the capabilities of the computer's audio devices. Therefore, the features of Audio Tool that you can use depend on your particular system configuration. This chapter describes all of the features and controls of Audio Tool. However, if your computer supports only monaural audio, you will not see some controls, such as a balance slider.
