After upgrading my system to 24 gigs of RAM, the driver was no longer able to allocate buffers below 256MB. This is a problem I know many people have faced in the past, but I've always been lucky even though my system had 12 gigs. I was gutted as last weekend I did a lot of work on the driver to get it to work in 96khz mode on my Delta 1010 (which uses an older chipset than the driver expects).
Anyway, I've found a solution that works for me in the form of the following boot flag:
himemory_mode = 2
This basically tells the kernel to prefer allocating high memory, thus leaving enough low memory free for the driver.
You can enter this boot flag at the chameleon boot prompt, or you can add it to the kernel flags of your com.apple.Boot.plist (or org.chameleon.boot.plist) file.
Hope this helps somebody

I had exactly this issue after putting 24 Gb RAM on the Gigabyte EX58 UD5 board, and the M-Audio 44. Adding himemory_mode=2 to the kernel flag in /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist fixed the issue (sudden lockups - I thought the issue was a bad RAM stick until I booted with the -v flag and saw the audio IO related kernel panic message on the screen).
thank you for posting this!

I'm using the Delta 1010LT on 10.6.4 as my recording workstation and I'm running into issues which I haven't been able to pinpoint. Sometimes the system locks up, sometimes it just won't boot. Since I'm running with 2GB RAM only, i guess the himemory_mode flag doesn't apply here?

Anyone here with Maya 44 PCI Sound Card ?
I have found a driver!
I can't test it right now, cause my system collapsed on saturday. Need a few days to reinstall it.
I don't know if its 32 bit or 64 driver yet, but if anyone can test it, please try and comment if it works. Thanks!
Update : I have found more info about it. And Yes, It Should Work !
Newest Version is 0.9 and is 64 bit Mountain Lion tested. (good for Lion and Snow Leopard too)
There is a 32 bit version too if needed (v0.8).
Inputs not working yet as i read, but both outputs work.
Don't know too much about a working volume control, but there were comments that volume needs to be set in Windows before and rebooted to OS X.
Site is in russian. Use Chrome with automatic translation.. http://www.applelife...ci.11875/page-3
Here is another download link which does not need registration:
Update : I can confirm it that it works great indeed! 64 bit on Mavericks, all bit depths, both outputs (one input, but did not test that..)
Volume control works too. Although first i was able to mute it fully, now just able to turn it down very low, but not muting. Anyway its not that a big issue..

I am searching for the Maya 44 xte driver, unfortunately the kext for the PCI version doesn't work since Maya 44 xte is PCIe. Does anyone know of a way to get the driver working on 10.8?
UPDATE: It appears that now the ESI Maya xtE soundcard is running on my ML 10.8 system by using one of the older drivers, not the newest one. The driver that worked is MAYA44_XTe-Mac-v1_07 and is available on the ESI site for download. The 1.08 driver did not work on 10.8. All analog and digital inputs and outputs are functioning correctly. This could be an option for those needing ADAT in and ADAT out on osx86/hackintosh builds.
