hi 1.1b0 (BETA) version is finally out. Changes: * Fixed noise after 4-8 minutes * Changed audio channels mapping, you no longer need to remap rear/center+sub channels in 'Audio MIDI Setup' * Changed volume sliders: added mono 'master' slider, added volume controls for channels 3-8 * Fixed Leopard issue with notification sounds Features: * 16-bit and 24-bit playback on most 10k1/10k2 cards * 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 volume control and mute Unimplemented: * recording * SPDIF/AC-3 passthrough * 16/24-bit recording * kX DSP and routing, no custom DSP effects, SDK and API * 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 supported, but their FPGA firmware is not uploaded by default. If you are using Hackintosh, you will need to install kX driver, ensure audio is OK and reboot into OS X, this way FPGA firmware will be preserved and you will get audio. * When installing under Leopard, you may need to reboot after you run the installer, because leopard won't load driver KEXT file Download link: kXAudioDriver-1.1b0.dmg Please post your bug reports here. === I also updated our 'Donation' page.
