The new ThoughtStream USB works the same as the previous RS-232 ThoughtStream, but the PC software has changed. There is now a USB driver that needs to be installed first before the software.
The driver ('ThoughtStream USB driver') is available here: http://www.mindplacesupport.com/ThoughtStream.htm.
Incidentally, this is the same driver that is used for the new Procyon, so if you have already installed it for the new Procyon, you do not need to install it again for the ThoughtStream.
So, download and install the USB driver.
Download and install the Interface software.
Plug in the ThoughtStream to your computer.
Set the Serial Port in the software to match the COM port that gets created by the USB driver. (typically choose the highest available COM port # in the software. If that does not work, move to the next lower COM port #)

How to use the MindPlace Kasina with Transparent's Mind Workstation

Attach USB

The

Mount Kasina by USB

Click the navigation wheel until the USB icon on the menu of the Kasina is highlighted. Press the middle button to mount the Kasina on the computer.

Kasina SD card Mounted

The Kasina will load 2 devices on your computer. One is the SD card (if one is inserted). The factory default card will be named KASINA SD. You can find it under My Computer on Windows.

Kasina USB Sound Device

The Kasina will also become accessible as a standard USB audio device. Your computer should automatically install the needed driver. You can use the Kasina for the sound output of your computer in any software application or at the system level by selecting the Kasina AVS device for sound playback. This is showing the Windows 7 Hardware and Sound control panel.

Launch Mind Workstation

If MWS is not already open then launch from the Start menu or from your shortcuts. This shows the opening screen with version information. Note that any level of MWS supports SpectraStrobe altough this shows the Enterprise version.

Check that you have the latest version of Mind Workstation

The MindPlace Kasina and SpectraStrobe support in Mind Workstation is in active development as a relatively new feature. Make sure you have the latest version of Mind Workstation. By default, MWS checks for updates when it opens but you can also use the Help menu.

Mind Workstaion Toolbar Icons

2 new items should become available on your Mind Workstation toolbar.

Play on Kasina in MWS

'Play on Kasina' lets you play back your session directly to the Kasina without having to select it as the MWS audio device. You can play the session from your computer speakers by hitting the regular green play button or you can preview your session on the Kasina by hitting the 'Play on Kasina' button.

Upload to Kasina in MWS

'Upload to Kasina' is when you are finished with your session and wish to copy it to the Kasina SD card. Depending on the length and complexity of your session, this process will take a while to complete. MWS compiles and outputs your session as an mp3 file then through the USB connection copies it to the Kasina.
Note: Copying directly to Kasina SD by a microSD card reader transfers much faster than over USB.

Kasina as MWS Audio Device

You can also select the Kasina as the primary MWS audio device and then anytime you press the play button, playback will route through the Kasina. Your entry on the list may look different than the screenshot but the important part is that the item in the list contains 'Kasina AVS Audio'.

AudioStrobe on Kasina

If you wish to use AudioStrobe from MWS on the Kasina, you will still want to run the AudioStrobe Configuration tool. This sets the AudioStrobe signal levels.
When using SpectraStrobe you need no further configuration as the levels are set by the signal.

AudioStrobe Preference in MWS

You can also configure AudioStrobe in the Program Settings under AudioStrobe options.
