1.3 driver works great, since moving up to a machine with some expansion i have went back to my audigy since the alc860 in this box isnt supported by anything and with the power managment stuff it works PERFECT

KX Audio 1.3b0

All working well with EMU 0404 PCI Card! on Leo 10.5.8 and Snow Leopard 10.6.0 & 10.6.1

Only problems I have are...

1. the sound is to loud, have to have OSX master volume very low (but im in a studio with BIG monitors) this really isnt an issue.

2. Sleep works fine BUT Loading of the kext driver or FPGA firmware isnt working after sleep, (ie: I put OSX to sleep and wake it back up to no sound at all. Need to run edspctrl to get souynd back.

PS. I have mad a script that loads the FPGA firmware on startup so you DONT have to go to the terminal and type edspctrl every time you start up! only problem is getting to restart after sleep. willing to share this, would the maker of the driver need it for anything 1st?

Anyone got any info about getting the driver to load after sleep without having to type edspctrl

Check the compatibility list of "creative" cards in my signature (you should be logged in to see these)

This is very odd to see 10.5.8 OUT!



Is there any solution to enable the same sound card in leopard 10.5.6 :) :P :( .

Most music files are not 5.1 sound so it is not to be expected that you will get it from them, now some speakers like mine have a mode you can enable to fake 5.1 by duplicating the existing channels you may want to check to see if yours support this.

sadly this is where it ends (because you really don't want to know what happened next) :) Which is expected from this build by the way (speaking of 10.5.x in mind)

Oh nothing happened  ;) (so got my old driver up and running... hehe). But he did mention its for Snow Leo which indicates only those dudes with Snow Leo may run this successfully. So far, my hardware is not compatible (mostly...., i think) until someone from around here has more drivers... 


edit: thought E would release stable drv by now...

Question:

I'm under iAtkos V7, and I definitely miss the control panel that's present in Windows.
Plus, the "kX Manager" application in Applications/Utilities is totally useless.. it's an almost empty window, the only thing present being a "Reset E-DSP" button.

Besides that, I'm amazed that my card (SB Live 5.1 Digital Studio) worked right after installing the drivers =D


EDIT: Read the FAQ, and there it says that "kX Manager does nothing" xD

O {censored}! :( I wasn't exactly gonna put it there (the dload Link) ... although he did give me permission to post email in there... so I'm guessing no harm done? :dev:

:huh: "W-Tiggeh", I'm assuming you're talking about 1.3b0.

kX Manager etc works on other user's Snow Leo system??? What about Normal Leo (10.5) anyone tried it? Any errors? (after an hour)??

1.3b0 x86 works fine on x86 & 1.11b0 works fine on x86 (10.6 mode or 10.5)??? so many dudes got this and yet no feedback? 100 downloads so far.

Sick of using my SB Extigy in 32Bit mode (due to 10.5.6 Audio kexts) in Snow Leopard, I bit the bullet and shoved in my old Audigy into the machine.

In 32 and 64 bit mode, I was getting the same error as most ppl

kXAudioDevice[0x7b88200]::init: --- driver start-up, version 1.11b0
kXAudioDevice[0x7b88200]::initHardware(0x7bdea00)
kXAudioDevice[0x7b88200]::free()
kXAudioDevice[0x7b88200]::free_all() - iKX interface already closed


I then changed my PCI slot, disabled my Onboard Azalia (through BIOS) and disabled my CPU Overclock. One of them did the trick n kX picked up my Audigy.

Now I have sweet sweet sound in Snow Leopard 64Bit 10.6.2 using the 1.11b0 drivers.

NOTE: sleep works fine. Thanks oxtie and eugene.

NOTE2: Re-enabled my Overclock and my Azalia. The kX driver is still working perfect. Lesson being try changing ur PCI Slots.
