hi 1.2b0 (BETA) version is finally out. Changes: * Fixed kernel panic introduced in 1.1b1 * Fixed treble and bass issues [caused by invalid EQ preset] * Added support for power management * Added command-line utility 'kxctrl' (similar to Windows version). All features except SoundFont management are supported * Added command-line utility 'edspctrl' (similar to Windows version). It uploads FPGA firmware into E-DSP cards (E-mu 1616, 1212, 0404 etc.) * kX API is partially ported to OS X, thus, it is now possible to write DSP manager applications similar to kX Mixer (Windows). This is work in progress. * Added 'kX Manager' application (/Application/Utilities) which currently does nothing. Ignore it : ) Features: * 16-bit or 24-bit playback on most 10k1/10k2 cards (depending on card model) * supports up to 8 speakers (configure speaker configuration in OS X 'Audio and MIDI' panel) * should support SPDIF and headphones outputs, if applicable * supports external modules (LiveDrive) * supports hardware-accelerated volume control and mute, but not RemoteIR or onboard volume controls Unimplemented: * recording * SPDIF+AC-3 passthrough * 16/24-bit recording * kX DSP and routing, no custom DSP effects * hot-plug for PCMCIA device (Audigy2 ZS notebook) - surprise removal will probably cause a lock-up or kernel panic * any sampling rate except 48000Hz not supported, OS X uses built-in SRC, which is quite good Known issues: * E-mu E-DSP cards are now supported the same way they are under Windows version of the kX driver. In order to upload FPGA firmware after reboot, open Terminal and type 'edspctrl'. It should initialize FPGA firmware and any dock stations you have. Note that if you reboot after Windows, and you were running Creative drivers, you need to reset FPGA firmware. Type 'edspctrl -reset'.
