HDSPe + Multiface mkII

Latest drv + frmware

MacPro + GB EP35-DS3P based Hackintosh.

Everything OK 100% with the MP.

Sometimes the HDSP control panel crashes after a cold boot when it's installed in the Hackintosh. Once relaunched, everything works fine.
Failure Rate: 1 out of 500 times....

Hi guys,

Have any of you managed to get your PCI cards working in 64bit in Snow Leopard?

The old hdsp_173_x86 is only 32bit and does not function unless I boot with the kernel flag <arch=x86_32>.

The latest driver for SL (hdspe_x86_270) works in both x32 x64.

Am I finally going to have to buy a PCIe card?

I have not managed to get this working. 32 bit works perfectly in SL. 64 bit mode doesn't see any sound device.

It doesn't appear that RME has any plans for development of the 64 bit drivers for the PCI version - as far as I can tell. I've checked their forums and google. Apparently there isn't anyone requesting 64 bit drivers for the older PCI card? What a shame. Since I'm not so thrilled about the converters in my Multiface, I probably will move up to something better - rather than spend money towards upgrading to the HDSP PCIe card.

The initial posts in this thread were about how & why the HDSP PCI (not PCIe) won't function properly in OSX with the RME-provided drivers. It only takes a sharp-minded user to make it happen again.

The initial posts date back to 2007. RME has since updated their driver (2008) which works perfectly fine (unpatched) for 32-bit Snow Leopard (for me, at least).

Meanwhile, someone help me try with the driver 1.73 and
the patch, I hope I do not leopard.Con splits the original driver (1.73) the card is detected, but the sound does not come out and volume sliders are at 0, unfortunately.
My hardware is:
Asus p5dh deluxe intel dual core 7300, 5gb ram
HRD 3 1 TB Samsung spintpoint
OS: Leopard, Win7, Win xp sp3
NVidia 8400 256mb card
Sound Card: RME HDSP 9632
Has anyone solved with my own hardware?
Thanks

:) I tried the patch, it says it can not find the driver 1.6,
can someone tell me why?
Can I use a newer driver version?
Sorry for my English ...
Thanks

Hi all.

First of all I must excuse me for my not so well spoken English

I`ve installed Hazard 10.6.6i in AMD Phenom x4 965 with the Flags: {-v busratio=20 fsb=20000000}

So far it runs very well. Only my Soundcard: RME hdsp 9632 wont sound normal..
Ive tried the original drivers from RME -Page (hdsp_173_x86.gz). Installation was without any problems. It reboots, the programs start automatically and all seems to be ok.

BootLog Says (-v): WARNING: com.RME.driver.HammerfallDSP declares no kernel dependencies
-> what does it mean?

Now, when I open iTunes it sounds ok two BUT all 3-5 Seconds it does crackling. Its like the CPU is too slow or the soundcards buffer is too small?!

Then I've read here in Forum that 0xdeadbeef has programmed a Patch to fix this Problem.
So Ive installed the older Driver (hdsp_16_x86) and patched him. The Distortion is gone but crackling is present..

Has anyone an Idea what to do ???

My System:

MB: ASUS M4A87TD evo
RAM: 4GB DDR3 -> "About this MAC" shows DDR2
CPU: AMD Phenom™ II X4 965 Processor -> kext utility recognizes the CPU. In "About This MAC" its unknown CPU


Thank you very much!

Aside from the aesthetical perspective on your process manager, I would not overestimate the boost you would get from switching your kernel from 32bit to 64bit. Although the kernel runs in 32bit many of the tasks are run in 64bit already now. As you know the mach-o kernel even supports generically more than 4GB main memory and runs aswell 32bit and 64bit tasks.

I am also running my kernel in 32bit for having the UAD-1 PCI cards running and for allowing my old school nVidia 7600 GT to run with 2x24" rather than only one. I'd rather get more RAM and a faster CPU.

greeeetz, x!

why? Many of the major music software companies said Lion ain't compatible to their software at the moment. Do you really wanna be Apple's betatester? Lion is a beta at best atm. I would consider waiting at least 6 mths. My recommendation is: wait 12mths. It seems they didn't even yet fix their Firewire issues, that they are aware of since 2006.

Ableton, Steinberg, Native Instruments, Avid, M-Audio: all of them said, you'd better not update now. And you know what: I defo won't. Never change a running system... I can live quite good with Snow Leopard. Many of these so called new features (like fullscreen, pfffft...) can be used in Snow Leopard just by installing tiny plugins...

According to this: http://www.rme-audio...ic.php?id=11350 RME drivers seem not to be Lion compatible either.

So I suppose I can use SL for the next two years, but then Ableton, Native and all the others cease software support, so updating is req'd at a certain time and then I'd prefer to keep on using my RME rather than being peeved b/c of no available drivers and thus throwing it out of the window...

well, RME turns out to have a solid understanding of what their customers are interested in.

Closing and thus effectively censoring topics is a a really sustainable ancient german marketing approach,




I am gonna get an Apogee now...

I was toying with making an attempt at patching latest drivers for PCI use - as far as I can tell the only difference in the audio path for the older cards is the driver contains an integer-to floating-point conversion routine (PCI cards supply the audio data as integer and the driver converts to float, and the newer cards do this conversion in hardware, so the routine is now missing from the driver). However this is not a trivial job at all and would likely involve users having to upgrade their PCI firmware to the latest version using windows AND there would be no guarantee the mac driver would recognise the card. I CAN'T be responsible for users bricking their cards just because they want a Lion/64-bit upgrade, and I'm reluctant to take the risk of bricking my OWN card during development of the patch :blink:

I shall definitely look at the possibilities though, unfortunately my development hackintosh is dead at the moment. Stay tuned, and I shall post what I find, when I find it.

It really sucks that RME have hung Mac users with PCI expansions and hackintoshers out to dry - I gave them hell about it before they released the one working driver. Unfortunately EOL'ing a 10+ year old card isn't actually that bad for a company, what really gets me is that of course it is still supported in windows, and dropping the PCI support from the Mac driver involved removing 5 lines of C++ source code. I mean for God's sake, what is wrong with these people!

absolutely, man...

RME is STILL selling that 9632 card - so this is not EOL cycle. This is artificially EOL for Apple users, only. As you say: they actively had to remove code to drop support and that really looks like a b/s ripoff to force us to buy newer hardware.

RME could simply release the source code of that 1.7x driver
but hell I guess they are not going to. And hell yes: I am not going to buy RME anymore. Once I am pissed of a company there is no 2nd chance.

If you decide to temper with the current driver, just let us know, I suppose there are some ppl (like me) willing to test.


greeeetz, x!




p.s. I don't care if the driver is 32 or 64bit. My two UAD-1 cards will still require that 32bit kernel, anyway. 32bit is much more compatible and since most of the processes are run in 64bit, I really don't care if the kernel and the kexts are 32 or 64bit. I suppose I wouldn't even recognize the difference as long as I am not on solid state...
