Hi, I'm really new on this site.. I'm try to see how Leopard works just because I heard anywhere that is the best OS to play and create music.. ! Currently I use WinXP and cubase... and it's ok but all my friends use Mac. So I've an outdated PC... but it's enough to play music.:
ASUS P4P800
ATI 9600 PRO
1 Gb RAM
PENTIUM 4 2,6 GHz
AUDIOPHILE 2496
Roland RD 300 GX, Evolution MIDI MK-361C, Cubase, Pianoteq 2.2...
I tried many DVD from torrents.. finally I solved the rebooting problem, just after the darwin scrolling lines..., by using the Toh Leopard 2Rc distro... it works ... but:
3Com onboard ethernet card doesn't work and much important think... my audiophile is not recognized.
Then, since I don't want to change the PC just for the audioboard and moreover before trying how a Mac run, please send me an email if you have any ideas or solution.... I'll be waiting and searching meanwhile...

Thanks in advance and Ciao.

All, I've just bought a new iMac 24''....

After 10 minutes... I've plugged in my evolution midi keyboard and that's it !!! I'm playing in garageband .... after 1 Gb of updates downloaded in 13 minutes... (this pc is really fast also in internet..).. without any latency and beautifull sounds...

I'd say you all.... please save your time and go into the new fantastic world of Mac !!!

Thanks... APPLE .... Thanks...for your reallly good job !!!

Ciao.

If you have money, you can buy new pc hardware and install osx in a breeze.
If you don't, stick with P4 + Cubase SX. It's not that bad after all...
Cubase+Acid (in Rewire Mode) + SoundForge rocks in the Windows platform.

I agree,... it's not a bad choice but to play with a Mac it's really another staff.
Consider that without anythink plugged on my Mac but just my midi usb keyboard, I can do everithink without any latency and with beautifull sounds...
Just plug you keyboard and play soon..!
Beautifull world ;) ..!

Ciao.

Ok, I get that the internal audio card of your mac supports CoreAudio (thus low latency), but one can do the same with Asio4All drivers for Windows.

You should visit this thread: http://forum.insanel...showtopic=25145
There's a user who finally built drivers for various PCI sound cards, and 2496 is one of them!
I can tell you mine works in Leopard :unsure:

@De Sad:
I don't know what the question mark (?) you typed reffers to, but if it needs to be explained further, all i'm saying is that a driver is out now for the 2496 PCI. A member named audiodriverwriter has made a driver (now in version 0.1.0) which really works with 2496 at least in Leopard... (although no MIDI support yet)

I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped develope the drivers. Keeping great quality audio gear working into the future. Instead of ending up outdated and destitute.

I do though want to ask if anyone has managed to get these drivers to work with pro tools m-powered on 10.5.4 Kalway install.

Cheers.

Hi there,

great to see the pci audio drivers - unless of Apple marketing pci is still the best interface for serious audio work...

I just found the (maybe) cheapest way to get a envy24ht card - the SWISSONIC TS22PCI
is based on the Terratec Phase 22 and you can get it in germany for only 55 .

http://www.thomann.d...nic_ts22pci.htm

With two analog IO, S/pdif and Midi I/O this could be an inexpensive start for a nice music studio software (Ableton Live, Logic Studio, Garageband) on your home low-end hackmac.

Someone already use this card on his hack?

I got it working with different drivers than those supplied by MAudio. However, the cards sounds like {censored} compared to my Duet so it is collecting dust.

hello everyone,

i have a pci 2496 running osx 10.4.10. i have installed the latest m-audio drivers, and the Envy24 driver 2.0, and i cannot get the system to see the card at all. it doesnt show up under MIDI devices or audio devices, and I cannot even get the M-Audio Control Pane to open. any suggestions?

The Maudio drivers will not work since theres no pci slots in Intelmacs. Maby its that driver that causes problems for the envy24. So Im pretty sure you wount be able to get the Maudio controll pane to launch at all. Im pretty sure the envy24 should work though, it does with my Maudio Delta 1010 and my Delta 44 Pci cards. Im running Leo though but I doubt theres any difference between the two oses if they work with the envy24 or not.

I havent read the latest news on the envy24 site but last time I checked there was no midisupport with this driver.

I have my Audiophile 2496 working perfectly on 10.5.6 with the Envy24 drivers. I wish I could tell you some procedure to make it work but I just selected it on install.
