Woohooo! Yes!

Brilliant, 0xdeadbeef! Many many thanks for this. I used the patch for my Multiface/PCI, and just tried it out with Logic and it works perfectly!

Will advise here if I run into issues. Thanks again!

:yoji:

Great work 0xdeadbeef

I've haven't enough time these days to work with osx, but today I was pleasantly surprised.
Your patch works out of the box with my Hdsp9632 pci card

Thank you very much for your effort!

0xdeadbeef I noticed in your sig that you have RME cardbus working in osx86, I have a ricoh pci cardbus card in my desktop and a ricoh cardbus device in my ibm x60 notebook ( Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c476 II ) can you please explain to me how you got this to work in osx and what driver you used to get the rme cardbus recognized and talking to your multiface.


Your help is greatly appreciated. :rolleyes:

Hi all,

Unfortunately I've got a few minor problems with the driver. Can anyone help out? The driver works great right after applying the patch itself, but as soon as I open terminal and enter the commands mentioned in the installation instructions, the multiface loses contact and indicates a host error (after reboot).

This is not a huge problem at all as the patch even works without going through the additional steps, but anytime I try to set a sample rate higher than 48khz in Ableton Live, I get a kernel panic. Switching between 44.1 and 48khz however works fine. I can set a higher sample rate in AudioMidiSetup and run iTunes, but as soon as I reboot, it reverts to 48khz.

Is everyone else able to use higher sample rates than 48khz?

I was wondering if this is somehow related to the incomplete installation? Why does the stuff I type in Terminal not work? The following part in the installation instructions is still a bit unclear to me:

sudo ./bspatch /System/Library/Extensions/HammerfallDSP.kext/Contents/MacOs/HammerfallDSP \
/System/Library/Extensions/HammerfallDSP.kext/Contents/MacOs/HammerfallDSP ./HDSPPCI.patch

Is there a space between the backslash and the slash? Or should I type
".../HammerfallDSP \/System/..."
??

Looks somehow strange to me. Any suggestions are highly appreciated. I run 10.4.8 Semthex kernel by the way.

Many many thanks to 0xdeadbeef for the hack. Great work!!

Edit: This is a HDSP Multiface + PCI card by the way

Hm, strange, I haven't even tried applying that patch from the command line, but everything works exactly as it should. I've just tried this patch with 10.4.9 tubgirl AMD sse2 kernel, and every samplerate works :(

Maybe you are using autosync? Try to switch multiface to master clock...

If you still have problems, try to uninstall and then reinstall patch. As far as I see, you typed this command well...

Good luck

Thanks Kejkz. I already tried switching it to master clock, but no difference at all. Reinstalled the driver/patch, repaired permissions etc. I'm almost at my wits' end. I could only think of a conflict between the formerly installed Fireface400 driver. I had to remove the FF400 MIDI driver, otherwise my MIDI setup wouldn't load. Maybe there's an issue with the other audio driver as well.

I'll give this a shot next time I'm at the studio. I may as well put the HDSP into another hackintosh just to see if that makes a difference.

Thanks for the help so far.

You shouldn't apply the command-line patch at all... that is for people that run opendarwin, not OSX.

Gui, have you tried this new RME driver? I hate to mess with a good thing... But even if these drivers are fine, we owe 0xdeadbeef gratitude for getting them to play ball. I love the net :)

I still think we have to give RME some credit for generally listening to their customers and for supporting their older hardware more than most hardware companies I know. It's still one of the best equipment investments I've ever made.

I think they were smart to do this because a lot of laptop owners will be using expresscard->cardbus adapters anyway. Well done RME. My order for PCIe will be in the post as soon as i get the $$$ haha.
