Can you help me installing or modifying the Envy24 driver for my Terratec DMX 6Fire sound card? It's almost the same as M-Audio AudioPhile 2496 or the big Terratecs or any other Envy24 based card.

I run the installer of 0.21 under 10.6.2 and since I have installed it, Envy24 driver appeared in the sound settings, I can see a greyed out volume control, and I hear a tick from the speakers during startup. But no sound playing. There was even a tick during the install process. Write me what kind of informations are you interested in and I will capture and upload them somewhere!

Thanks!

You can not just modify the driver I'm afraid. The DMX 6Fire doesn't have the same codecs as the Audiophile 2496, but it looks more like the Terratec EWX 2496 (same codecs). There is still no guarantee that if I detect a 6Fire and let it behave as a EWX2496 that it works since the GPIO's can be very different (the way codecs are connected to the Envy24). I can try that and send you a new version somewhere this or next week.

Hello!
First: Congratulations and Thanks for this Work!

but... the Envy 24 don´t work for me :) :wacko:

My Configuration:

Core2Quad Q9550 - 4GB RAM - EP31-DS3L - Fame 2x2 PCI (identical with Terratec Phase 22 PCI) - iAtkos 1.5.7

any Idea?

Hi, I would be happy to help you in any beta testing! I dig into it yesterday and here is what I found:
There is a History.txt file in the DMX6Fire folder, which starts like this:
/*=============================================================================
   FILE:		 History.txt
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   DESCRIPTION:  PHASE 88, EWS88 MT/D, EWX 24/96 and DMX6fire Driver History (WDM)
   DATE:		 31-Aug-2007
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   COPYRIGHT:	(c) 2000-2007, TerraTec Electronic GmbH. All Rights Reserved.
=============================================================================*/
Even if the drivers are different they couldn't be so much if the they were compiled from the same code tree.

Something more important, a part from an early DMX6Fire driver:
[TerraTec]
%DeviceName_TTP7%=TTP7.Device,PCI\VEN_1412&DEV_1712&SUBSYS_1138153B

;%DeviceName_TTP7%=TTP7.Device,PCI\VEN_1412&DEV_1712&SUBSYS_1138153B&REV_02
;FMB TEST: allow 88MT to load this driver
;%DeviceName_TTP7%=TTP7.Device,PCI\VEN_1412&DEV_1712&SUBSYS_1115153B

3. point is that all the differences in ews.c from ALSA package doesn't seem too complex (from what I understand just some different registers for initializing different parts, but that code didn't look like some complex chip controlling thing).

BTW I could install the Phase88 driver in Windows using inf modding, and the driver starts, but the volume control (in control panel) is greyed out in the same way as it is in OS X. I will see what does ASIO say about that, maybe the channels are just remapped somewhere.

UPDATE:
Using a simple dev id modding, the EWX 24/96 driver works fine with a DMX6Fire under XP! The volume control is greyed out, but everything works as it should!

You would need the Envy24HT driver, not the Envy24 driver in any case. Besides that, I expect that the subvendor ID of that card is different than the original Phase 22 one. If you can dig up the subvendor ID, I'll add it.

Ok, but does it work under OSX now too with my driver?

Is this correct so?:

TerraTec Electronic GmbH


PCI\VEN_1412&DEV_1724&SUBSYS_117B153B&REV_01
PCI\VEN_1412&DEV_1724&SUBSYS_117B153B
PCI\VEN_1412&DEV_1724&CC_040100
PCI\VEN_1412&DEV_1724&CC_0401

oem4.inf:TerraTec.NTAMD64:TS22PCI.Device:5.30.3.26:pci\ven_1412&dev_1724&subsys_117b153b

pci\ven_1412&dev_1724&subsys_117b153b

Envy24HT driver don´t work for me.

Hi audiodriver Writer, i have a serious problem with my soundcard, is an hercules 16/12 Firewire they recently made snowleopard drivers but only 32 bits, i need to run in 64 bit mode because of my orchestral writing that uses 6 gb ram in logic, so i want to know if your driver could work or if its posible to convert the 32 bit driver to the 64 bit.
Here are the links to the driver and soundcard info

Thanks and sorry for my english

PD:i really need this soundcard for a work in progress and dont have enough money to spend in a similar soundcard! im desperate!

My drivers do not work with firewire devices so I'm afraid I can not help you.

thanks for the reply! and it is posible to port the 32 bit driver to 64 bit? or port a linux driver to snowleopard 64 bit? thanks!

Hello audiodriverwriter,

Is there any chance to get analog Volume control for Aureon Space 7.1 cards. It is just only problem that stopping me to switch to MAC completely. Maybe some donation can help to solve this problem? :)

I've added controls for gain and volume for Aureon Sky and Space (only Space tested), see version 0.13 on my website.

Hi,

Tested Aureon Space volume control on new installed Snow Leopard 10.6.2, and can confirm - it works :(
Actually to make the driver work on my system, I had to remove AppleHPET.kext.

Now just one wish left - could you please add MUTE support :P?

And thank you very much once again for this driver!!!
