Windows should have QuickTime installed to utilize all of the features of Sound Byte. This does not affect Mac OS X users, as QuickTime is always available. Sound Byte will check for QuickTime, and report if it cannot be found. If you need to install QuickTime, go to this page to download the QuickTime 7.6 installer: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL762?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US
Sound Byte will run without QuickTime on Windows, but you need to change the setting in the Sound Byte Preferences, telling the app to not use QuickTime. Note that not all features will be available without QuickTime.
Please do not install a later version of QuickTime, as it may not correctly function on Windows 8 or 10. Do not install or update QuickTime if it is already present on your PC and Sound Byte is correctly working.
If you are updating an existing copy of Sound Byte, be sure to quit it before running the Installer.
If you do not want to use the installer, you can also download the
