Why does WO Mic driver fail on Windows 7?
If you go to the Device Manager, it shows WO Mic driver state is error code 52 which means the driver signature cannot be recognized by Windows 7. WO Mic driver adopts SHA-2 signing algorithm for better security. However, Windows 7 SP1 only supports SHA-1. That's the reason why you are seeing error code 52. To solve that, you need to upgrade Windows 7 or install security patch 3033929 manually. Please visit this Microsoft page for more information.

There is serious noise like static current. How to avoid it?
Some audio source may be too sensitive to environment noise. Please go to app settings, select different MIC device as audio source and check which is the right one.
The sound is robotic. How to solve it?
This may be caused by different reasons. Here are some tips for your reference:
  • Use USB connection if possible. It's more robust than wireless connection. And its latency is lower.
  • Put WO Mic app into foreground. Android will always give high priority to foreground app to run.
  • Close other apps which may consume too much CPU. WO Mic needs enough CPU duty to do audio packet encoding and transmission.
  • Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are both using 2.4G ISM frequency. They may interfere each other seriously. If it's allowed, while you are using one wireless, you better shut down the other. Please do this on both phone and PC.
