M2Tech Mac Driver - Page 2

post #16 of 37

Wild guessing: Is there something else in your installation that causes the panics? (A clean install would possibly prove/disprove your point?).

Marco replied to my inquiry this morning. Sounds like they're headed in the right direction maybe...

 

I asked:

I'm reading testimonial about the Mac driver being very flaky, complete 

with kernel panics. Can you comment on the stability of the Mac driver at 

this point? Are there certain things that don't work yet?

please apologize for answering you so late. Actually, we recently had report 

by some users who were having kernel panics after doing an OS update to 

their Mac. So we released a new driver which solved most of the problems. A 

more recent update from Apple actually solved the rest of the problem... 

Even Apple sometimes makes it bad :-)

That is a really lame answer, sorry.  I have a MacBook Pro, and have used Macs for, oh, about 20+ years.  Since OSX came out I have had exactly 3 panics.  

 

To say Apple's update "fixed" this probably means that they have no idea what Apple changed but are glad it worked.  I ordered one this week before I saw this Mac specific thread, and am seriously hoping I don't come to regret it.  As my plan is to have a dedicated Mac Mini music server I won't be jacking/unjacking the device a lot, so it may be OK, but lame software is not good...

You said it best....its lame....I use it the HiFace without hot-plugging it and it works for me otherwise it panics on and off.

Yeah, it definitely seems like they don't have a good handle on these drivers...

 

mrspeakers, please report back how things go for you!

That is a known issue. Eventually the driver causes a panic. There is a new driver so I am hopeful that these problems have been rectified.

I have been using the latest driver for about four months with no issues, ever. I don't hot swap much, but it has been quite satisfy ing and stable driving an 18' run to my Burson.

There are a couple of new 192k products on the market that don't require a driver. Has anyone played with these at 192 on the Mac and have comments or comparisons?

I hope the new driver supports Integer Mode

Nope.

Anybody tried this with Lion yet?

post #27 of 37

I just install Lion and my M2Tech evo works without any problems, sounds as good as in 10.6 maybe even better still testing.

post #28 of 37

I installed on two systems, both are working fine.  However, my HiFace is not working at 192 (prior problem, I think I have a bad device) with either of my SPDIF DACs.

post #29 of 37
So far so good on Lion and updated driver. I have experienced no panics thus far. I am on a brand new MBP.

Does anyone know how to setup a default bit rate of 96kHz when you plug this device in? I am constantly opening up Audi MIDI and manually setting it to 96.
