Software For The SignaLink


This page contains links to many different programs that can be used with the SignaLink interface.  Tigertronics in no way endorses or supports any of the programs listed here.  We have compiled this list only to help you in locating programs that are known to work with sound card interfaces.  Most programs work very well and provide excellent performance, but as you should expect, some programs will work better than others and some will not work at all with certain computer / sound card configurations.  We recommend that you download and evaluate several programs to determine which ones work best for you.  If you have questions about a specific program, or if you have trouble getting it to work with your system, then you will need to contact the author of the program directly for help.  Questions or problems with the operation of the SignaLink should of course be directed to our Technical Support Department.

How To Find What You Are Looking For

The programs on this page are listed in alphabetical order by program name.  To the right of each program name you will find information about the program, such as the modes and Operating Systems supported.  To help you find what you are looking for, we recommend that you use your web browsers "Find" feature (Netscape/Mozilla users press "CRTL-F") to search this page for specific "key words".  These keywords can be the mode that you are interested in (PSK, MT63, etc.), the program name (or any part of it), the operating system you want to use, etc.  When you find a program that you would like to download, simply click on the program name.  You will then be transferred automatically to the authors web site or another page where the program can be downloaded.


Windows Vista, 7, 8.x and Windows 10 Compatibility

We have found that most communication programs that work in Windows XP also work just fine in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10.  However, some programs cannot access the Windows software volume controls properly in these later versions of Windows.  Because of this, we suggest that you adjust the software volume controls only through Windows instead of your program's "Adjust Waterfall Drive" or "Adjust Transmitter Drive" (or similarly worded) menus.  Instructions for doing this in these newer versions of Windows can be found on our SignaLink Support page.

Please note that we have marked programs as being compatible with newer version of Windows (7/8.x and 10) when the program's specifications say that it's compatible, or when testing and/or customer feedback indicates that it is.  Again, most communication programs that work in Windows XP also function just fine in Windows 7, 8.x and Windows 10, so please don't think that a program won't work simply because we haven't yet marked it as being compatible.


Sound card program setup for the SignaLink USB

Be sure to see our instructions for configuring your communication program.  If we don't have the program that you are using listed, then be sure to see the "General Setup" section as it applies to ALL sound card programs.
