Well, if these do come out I can dust off my CT4620, CT4670, CT4760, SB0060, SB0090, and a few others I know I have around here somewhere.

I'm sure they'll come out. If anyone can get Creative drivers working in OS X it's these guys. They know the hardware inside-out. The only real obstacle would be CoreAudio.

Right now I have a fully-working Leopard install minus sound because I can't be bothered to enable the onboard chip (and switch the speaker cable between XP and Leo sessions) . I'll just sit in silence until these come along :)

Ya, well they said August 14. So it is soon. WOW, if this happens this is going to be HUGE. I will switch to OSx86 full time as sound will work!

Only 5 days to go until everything's working on my OSX install. The onboard audio may work, but I didn't feel like moving everything to the onboard audio.

The sound was the only thing holding me back.

Well, we will see if it really is August 14. Given there isn't much in terms of updates on the date, I would be pleasantly surprised if it was really August 14.

It'll be worth the wait anyway. I ended up enabling onboard audio and there's no way I could use this full time. It sounds like {censored}. Same as it did in XP. How can they call this "High Definition" audio when my 8-year old SBLive Value blows it away.

OS X driver released - version 1.0b2

get it from here (don't forget to review 'known issues' and 'unimplemented' stuff):

http://www.driverhea...ac-os-x-driver/

post your comments and bug reports to driverheaven forum please, since I cannot read both forums regularly
--

Lama, please update your topic:
* official site is www.kxproject.com
* E-DSP will only work if you boot OS X after Windows (with kX for Windows installed) - because E-DSP FPGA microcode needs to be loaded, and no such option exists for OS X at the moment
* DELL OEM card will never be supported

Wow! Awesome! Will report back to you on the driver.

Question, what is E-DSP? Do I need this just for sound in OS X?

eugene, I would just want to say, Thank You. You did this with your spare time, and delivered. Donations maybe? haha
I'll be sure to post bugs AFTER you had your vacation lol. Enjoy it, I don't have osx86 installed, due to the lack of sound. But will give these a go. I hope you enjoy your vacation.

Thanks again


P.S
To Eugene, or those who will try out the drivers, before I get home and re-install leopard. Is core audio functional?

Holy {censored} I have sound from my Audigy 2 ZS under Leopard.

All sound comes from the rear speakers as you said in your note. Also I don't see an Audio & Midi panel to configure. In the Sounds I see just a single slider for left and right balance. I don't see how to enable more than 2 channels?
