CT Elektronik English Documentation

YouChoos Resouces

CT's own documentation is very poor and there is a distinct lack of information readily available for it elsewhere, so hopefully I'm plugging that gap a little here. Note that although YouChoos no longer supplies CT products, this information will remain available here as a source of help - use as you wish, but be aware that it will no longer be updated.

The YouChoos CT SoundProg application provides an easy-to-understand interface for configuration of CT Elektronik sound decoders, including an intuitive design for almost all aspects of the decoder's features - not just sound. Take a look at the screen shots below to get an idea of how powerful and simple this is...
