Communications

COMMUNICATE SMARTER WITH SMARTCOMMS KIT

Our SmartComms Kit was developed to fix one common issue for Windows users—to simplify the way we communicate online—via a suite of smart communication features. Why fuss over mute controls or get distracted by unwanted background noises when you should be focusing on what matters instead? Plus, it can be used with any headsets or headphones with microphones!

With features such as VoiceDetect that automatically unmutes you as you speak, and NoiseClean that provides two-way noise cancellation which cancels static background noise during a call, your conversations will be more productive, and less disruptive.

SETTING UP THE SMARTCOMMS KIT ON WINDOWS 10

Follow these steps to get started with the SmartComms Kit:

  1. Install the Sound Blaster Audigy Fx V2 in your PC
  2. For new users, start by creating an account with us.
    For any existing users, you may sign in via any accounts you have with us, like your Creative store account, or other software accounts (e.g., Sound Blaster Command or Sound Blaster Connect).
  3. Go to the SmartComms Kit module and make sure that it is switched on.

MUTE AND UNMUTE YOURSELF AUTOMATICALLY

Have you ever been caught in a situation where you asked a question and anxiously waiting for a response from your teammates, or tried sharing your ideas with your co-workers, only to realize you were on mute?

Our VoiceDetect feature controls your mute status by voice detection as you speak—your microphone gets muted automatically when you stop speaking, and unmutes you instantly as you start speaking. There is absolutely no need to fiddle with any buttons—physical or in-app— so it keeps you focused on your train of thought.

TWO-WAY NOISE CANCELLATION

NoiseClean-in analyzes your incoming audio (imagine someone with a noisy background in your video call), detecting and suppressing the unwanted noises, before sending just their clean voice to you through your headphones.

NoiseClean-out does the same—but for your own background noise. And don't just take our words for it. Hear it for yourself!

When you're done with your online meeting, turn off the NoiseClean features and continue with normal media playback with the Sound Blaster Audigy FX V2 for the best audio experience.

*The NoiseClean features work best for static background noises such as fans, air conditioning, air purifier, humidifiers, vacuum cleaners, hair dryers, electric shavers, and even lawn mowers.

Guide to SmartComms Kit's Advanced Settings

Advanced settings allow you to access and control each feature according to your environment and preferences. For example, you'll be able to set how long it takes for your microphone to be automatically muted after you've stopped talking, or the level of background noise reduction you want on your outgoing audio (what others hear).

VoiceDetect

Auto Mic Mute / Unmute by Voice Detection

1. VoiceDetect Feature:
Turn VoiceDetect on / off by clicking on this switch. VoiceDetect requires your default microphone button to be unmuted in order for it to work. When unmuted, it will assume control over your microphone's outgoing audio to automatically unmute when you speak, and mute when you stop.
2. Set your speaking volume required to activate the VoiceDetect feature. When set to 'Soft', VoiceDetect gets triggered easily, even when you're speaking softly. When set to ‘Loud', you're required to speak louder in order to activate VoiceDetect's auto unmute.
3. Set the noise level that best describes your current environment noise when using this feature.
4. Select the type of microphone you're using. This allows for better accuracy in voice detection and pickup when you speak.
5. Set the amount of time it takes for your microphone to be automatically muted after you have stopped speaking.
6. Check this box if your voice and background noise level vary. This mode will automatically adjust according to the changes in your voice and background noise as it happens.

NoiseClean-out (Outgoing Noise)

Two-way Noise Cancellation — Your Background Noise to Others

7. NoiseClean-out Feature:
Turn this on to eliminate unwanted background noise from your environment during outgoing calls (what others will hear from you). When activated, NoiseClean-out reduces static noises generated by your environment, so that others can hear you better without the static disruption.
8. Set the level of noise that you wish to eliminate based on your current environment. For example, if someone is using a hair dryer directly behind you, we recommend setting this to ‘High'. If the noise source is from a distance and isn't loud, we recommend setting this to ‘Low'.
9. Check this box if your background noise level varies. This mode will automatically adjust itself according to the changes in your background noise level as it happens.

NoiseClean-in (Incoming Noise)

Two-way Noise Cancellation — Background Noise from Others

10. NoiseClean-in Feature:
Turn this on to eliminate unwanted background noise coming from your co-worker's end during incoming calls. When activated, NoiseClean-in cleans up your co-worker's voice and separates it from any background noise by filtering and allowing only their voice through into your headphones.
11. Set the level of noise that you wish to eliminate based on the current background noises that you hear from the call. For example, if the background noise in the call is loud, we recommend setting this to ‘High'. Likewise, if the background noise sounds soft and from a distance, we recommend setting this to ‘Low'.
12. Check this box if the incoming background noise level varies. This mode will automatically adjust itself according to the incoming background noise level from the call as it happens.
