This file contains information about LabVIEW support for the NI Sound and Vibration Toolkit (Base and Full). This file also provides you with help resources you can use while working with the software. Refer to the National Instruments Web site for a comparison between Sound and Vibration Toolkit (Base) and Sound and Vibration Toolkit (Full).
This file contains the following information:
The NI Sound and Vibration Toolkit provides comprehensive configuration, measurement-analysis, and visualization tools for audio, noise-vibration-harshness (NVH), and machine condition monitoring (MCM) applications. Based on an open-analysis capability and a flexible measurement library, the NI Sound and Vibration Toolkit presents a unique capability to create software-defined automated test and measurement applications. Learn more about the sound and vibration software at ni.com/soundandvibration.
The Sound and Vibration Toolkit Base/Full have the following requirements:
Refer to the LabVIEW Readme for additional system requirements and supported operating systems for LabVIEW 2020.
The following table lists the NI application software versions, including service packs, supported by the Sound and Vibration Toolkit.
|NI Application Software||Versions Supported by NI Sound and Vibration Toolkit 2020|
|NI LabVIEW (32- and 64-bit) Full or Professional Development System||2020|
|NI LabVIEW Real-Time Module||2020|
Note: Sound and Vibration Express VIs and the Sound and Vibration Assistant are not installed by NI Sound and Vibration Toolkit 2020. Side-by-side installation is supported; therefore you may install the Sound and Vibration Assistant from NI Sound and Vibration Toolkit or NI Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite 2015 or earlier.
NI installs software using NI Package Manager. If you do not already have NI software installed, LabVIEW installs NI Package Manager to handle the installation of your NI software. Visit ni.com/info and enter the Info Code NIPMDownload to download NI Package Manager. Refer to the NI Package Manager Manual for more information about installing, removing, and upgrading NI software using NI Package Manager.
You can install all of your LabVIEW products—including the Sound and Vibration Toolkit—using the LabVIEW Platform media. Refer to the LabVIEW Installation Guide on the LabVIEW Platform media for installation instructions and system requirements.
To request additional LabVIEW Platform media, refer to the National Instruments website.
Note If you purchased this product with an NI Software Suite or NI Product Bundle, use the installation media that shipped with your purchase to install this product.

The Sound and Vibration Toolkit includes the following new features:
Support for LabVIEW 2020 does not remove previously installed support for LabVIEW 2019 and earlier.
Fully synchronized stimulus-response measurements can now be performed while running analog input and analog output at different rates. DAQmx AI devices such as the 4464 can be run at full rate of 204.8 kHz while DAQmx AO device such as the 4463 can be run at full rate of 51.2 kHz. This allows for the measurement of harmonic components outside the bandwidth of the AO device.
You can access the software and documentation known issues list online. Refer to the National Instruments Web site for an up-to-date list of known issues in the Sound and Vibration Toolkit.
You can access a list of bug fixes online. Refer to the National Instruments Web site for a list of bug fixes in the Sound and Vibration Toolkit.
If you want to redistribute executables built with the Sound and Vibration Toolkit or any of its components, you must purchase the appropriate NI Sound and Vibration Software Run-Time License. The part number for the NI Sound and Vibration Software Run-Time License is 779875-35. Contact National Instruments to purchase the NI Sound and Vibration Software Run-Time License.
Refer to the LabVIEW Help, accessible by selecting Help»LabVIEW Help in LabVIEW, for information about the Sound and Vibration VIs. Sound and Vibration Toolkit documentation is located in the LabVIEW Help in the following location: LabVIEW Help»Toolkits»Sound and Vibration Toolkit.
To access the sample projects and templates from the New Project dialog, select Sample Projects in the left pane and navigate to the project that best matches your application requirements.
You can find LabVIEW examples for the Sound and Vibration VIs using the NI Example Finder. Select Help»Find Examples to launch the NI Example Finder. On the Browse page, the Sound and Vibration example VIs are located in the Toolkits and Modules»Sound and Vibration and the Toolkits and Modules»Order Analysis folders.
You also can find LabVIEW examples for the Sound and Vibration VIs in the labview\examples\Sound and Vibration and the labview\examples\Order Analysis directories.
You can automate the installation of most NI products using command-line arguments to suppress some or all of the installer user interface and dialog boxes.
If the NI product you are installing uses Microsoft .NET 4.6.2, the .NET installer may run before any NI software installs and may require a reboot before the installation of NI software begins. To avoid a .NET reboot, install .NET 4.6.2 separately before you install NI software.
For more information about automating the installation of NI products, refer to the following KnowledgeBase articles:
Microsoft Windows 10 is the latest version of the Windows operating system and features significant changes compared to previous versions. Windows 10 introduces several new capabilities and also combines features from both Windows 7 and Windows 8. For more information about NI support for Windows 10, visit ni.com/windows10.
When you install NI software on Microsoft Windows 8.1, you will notice a few additional tiles in the Apps view, including shortcuts to NI application software products such as NI LabVIEW, Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI MAX), and NI Launcher. For more information about NI support for Windows 8.1, visit ni.com/windows8.
LabVIEW will drop support for Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit), Windows Server 2008 R2, and all 32-bit Windows operating systems starting in 2021. Versions of this product that ship after May 1, 2021, may not install or execute correctly on these operating systems.
