Troubleshooting

This unit will directly plug into the USB port of your computer. A USB cable is NOT required. However if you do want to plug the unit into a extension USB cable first, you can order our A-male to A-female USB extension cable product number:

Additional Details:

For longer time before replacing the batteries you can remove the 3 x AAA battery holder the unit comes with and replace it with a different one: Alternate 3 x AA Battery Holders or you can connect 3 x C or 3  x D cells in series using 3 of these holders and connecting them in series: Alternate 1 x C or 1 x D Battery Holders

If you don't want to use batteries then we suggest this power supply: PSSMV1USA (Just set it on 4.5 volts)

NOTE: This unit will only record .WAV files. However, you can download a .mp3 file converter here: 

It is a very easy to use. Just open the sound file in this program, and save it as .WAV, and select PCM unsigned, 8 bit, mono in the Attributes section.

ALSO NOTE: When using the software for the USB5M, be sure to select "DAC for Ext.AMP" under the Voice Output tab before you program the board.

In Windows Vista/ Win 7 the PM66 software must be run as administrator by right clicking on the PM66 icon ad then click to "Run as administrator"

    I have 4 sounds that I need this would perfect for, the only question I have is: the sounds are white noise, pink noise, brown noise and blue noise. I want to record each sound to a different button and have it be selectable, ie each button a different noise, but I need each button to loop the sound that is selected, will this do that? And I know this is 2 questions, but if 1 button is pressed looping the sound, and another button is pressed to select that sound, is there an on/off switch that in which the device can be turned off. If not no big deal Im sure I can add one inline with the batteries.

    Hi Cody, This sound module has 300 seconds shared between all 4 buttons. This means you could put all 300 seconds on 1 button or you can mix and match between all 4 buttons as long as the total amount doesn't exceed 300 seconds.

    Are you able to put multiple recordings on each button or are you limited to one per button up to a cumulative 300 seconds? I'm hoping to use this in a gift for a friend where I can put various movie quotes on one button, birthday wishes from old friends on another, etc. but I would like to be able to have each button play only one of each type at a time when the corresponding button is pressed.

    Nick, we hope to have in the future a version for Windows 10. Unfortunately we do not yet have it or even know when it will be available. Thanks

  • Nick Pratelli on 12/18/2015 11:54:42

    Is there software that is compatible for Windows 10 or an alternative as I cannot roll back to Windows 7 or earlier?

  • Mason on 12/01/2015 21:00:04

    Hi Jeffrey, I would recommend any of the AAM1 amps that we carry. If you search for that, you can see we have a couple of versions of the amp module. From there you can choose the version that best suites your needs.

    Awesome, converted to a wav file using GoldWave and sounds good although I think I want to see how an amplifier could enhance the sound. Would you happen to be able to suggest an amplifier/amplifier kit option? I see the VM114 below but my config is using the 3 AAA batteries. Thanks

  • Mason on 11/30/2015 21:26:04

    Hi Jeffrey, I would recommend the GoldWave software. It is a free and easy program to use. You are able to save in any sound file format using that software.

    I have a wma file and see many free converter programs, as well as a Microsoft program but the MS tool states it will convert WMA Lossless file back to uncompressed PCM in .wav format....any recommendations? Thanks
