Finalizing the installation

Finalizing the installation

  • After installing the software and connecting the hardware:

    • Log onto your computer as an administrator (Windows NT/2000/XP users only)

    • Start VAB (under Programs-VAB for Infinity-VAB)

      • Allows VAB to “recognize” all blocks for use in experiments


Testing the system

Testing the System

  • On computer, start VAB (under Programs-VAB for Infinity-VAB)

  • Go to “Testing the System” Laboratory

  • Open and go through lab worksheets (e.g. Mic and Cosine test) and make sure everything works as indicated

  • If you have problems, post questions on the Discussion Board at the Infinity Project website


Digital music setup

Digital Music Setup

  • Some of our best digital music designs (e.g. in Chapter 2) utilize MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface)

  • MIDI-based VAB worksheets accept MIDI music from the PC

  • To use MIDI with the Infinity Technology Kit, you must install two freeware programs

    • MIDI-OX and MIDI-YOKE

  • See http://www.infinity-project.org/MIDI.pdf for complete installation instructions
