How do I Use the LabVIEW Sound VIs on a Macintosh?

Primary Software:
Primary Software Version: 7.1
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A

Problem: I'm getting errors when I use the LabVIEW Sound VIs on a Macintosh. What can I do?

Solution: Some Macs soundboards only support certain formats. Therefore, depending on your mac you will need to change the sound format input into the sound config VIs. The most commonly supported format is:

  • Sound Quality: Stereo
  • Rate: 44100
  • Bits per Sample: 16 bit

    This sound configuration is specified in the "Sound Format" input to many of the Sound VIs. If an unsupported configuration is used an error such as -10403 may be reported. The Sound Input VIs require exclusive access to built-in or attached microphones. If other applications that use the microphones (such as iTunes) are currently running, error -10005 or -10003 may be reported.
