Issue Details

I want to use the Sound and Vibration Analysis Software from National Instruments, but I don't know what the difference is between the Toolkit and the Measurement Suite.


Currently two packages of the NI Sound and Vibration software exist: "Toolkit Full" and "Toolkit Base".

NI Sound and Vibration Toolkit Full
This package was formerly called Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite. It is a comprehensive collection of NI analysis and signal processing tools for noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH); machine condition monitoring; and audio test applications.

Sound and Vibration Toolkit Base
This package was formerly referred to as Sound and Vibration Toolkit. This base version is a smaller subset of "Toolkit Full" and does not contain all functions that the full version includes.


You can find a complete and up to date feature comparison of Base (formerly called Toolkit) versus Full (formerly called Measurement Suite) here: Sound and Vibration Software Overview and Feature Comparison
