How do I download and install the software?
The enDAQ Analyzer is completely free, all that is required is to complete a simple form that will ask for your email address and your test experience. Here is the link to download. Once downloaded, the software requires some installation which includes the MATLAB runtime. More information is available in this user guide.
Why does it take so long to initially open?
The first time running the application on a computer (or after restarting the computer) you will experience an agonizingly long wait after initially starting. There will be a splash screen that appears to warn you that there will be a delay but please keep in mind that it can take several minutes to open the first dialog box. After the first time running the application, the computer caches certain information to make this much faster. We looked into speeding up this process but it is unfortunately outside our control because it is a MATLAB compiled program.
Are there any example files to download to help evaluate the software and products?
Yes! We've sold almost 10,000 enDAQ sensors (formerly Slam Sticks) that have generated many many recordings. In our community forum, posts tagged with IDE include raw data that can be easily downloaded to help get a feel for not only the software but the devices capable of generating these recordings. Here's the link to the community forum's posts tagged with IDE.
What is the current version of the software?
The most up-to-date release version is 2.0.0 which was released in February 2020.
