The following article will guide you through setting up the FA-101 as the default playback device for a Windows 7 or Vista operation system. This will allow software that uses Windows system sound settings (e.g. Windows Media Player, iTunes, etc) to output audio/music through the FA-101.

  1. Click on the Windows icons (or Start) on the bottom left of your screen.
  2. Click on Control Panel.
  3. On the top right of the Control Panel window, select "View by.." as "Category".
  4. Click on "Hardware and Sound".
  5. Click on "Sound". A Sound window appears.
  6. Click on the "Playback" tab.
  7. Click on  FA-101 Out 1-2 and then select "Set Default". The FA-101 will be set as the default output device for software that uses Windows 7 or Vista’s operating system's sound settings (e.g. Windows Media Player, iTunes, etc).
  8. Click on OK.

Note: Many audio software applications require their own audio interface driver setup (e.g. Sonar, Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, etc). Please refer to the software's documentation for their driver setup.
