Storage requirements
Approximately 1GB for installing NoiseTools and dependencies
Up to 512MB for temporary files during measurement download
1GB per instrument per year for measurements and time history data, assuming typical usage

Where an instrument is storing and downloading audio recordings, additional storage space will be required. The amount of storage will depend on the length of the recordings and the audio quality you’ve chosen. Audio recordings require the following amounts of space:

Standard Quality 120MB/hr
Studio Quality 1.4GB/hr

Sound card for audio playback
NoiseTools can work with on-board sound cards and even internal laptop speakers. However, for the best results, a dedicated card and external speakers are required. Some onboard sound cards may not be capable of playing studio-quality 96kHz audio. In these cases, an external sound card will be required. In some cases internal speakers are sufficient. However, to play back at realistic levels, such as when using the speaker calibration feature, good quality external speakers are required.

Graphics card
NoiseTools uses the latest technologies to draw the user interface directly using the graphics card. This gives a much better-looking and more responsive experience, and allows us to easily provide certain advanced features, such as the 3D frequency analysis view.

Most onboard graphics chips can provide more than enough power to display the basic user interface, but the more advanced screens will be noticeably smoother on more powerful hardware.

NoiseTools is also able to use the latest CUDA graphics cards from NVIDIA, to do FFT and other complex calculations. This can be done many times faster as compared with running these calculations on the main processor. This feature requires a CUDA-capable card and a 64bit version of Windows.
