Recommended Posts

Hey folks, ive got my macOS running quit well here.. network works great, but i've got a problem: i have a pci sound card, from ESI: Maya 44. The only problem is that I install the driver that come along with it, but still my macOS does not recognize it!


here is the link to the driver specs:



im using kalyway 10.5.2 not yet updated.


to get the ethernet working i had to put the vendor and id into a string in a file, repair disk permissions, etc.. should i do the same thing for get sound working? in wich file?


thanks in advance!


Its great to have macOS running!


Here are the screens as it is now.. I've made it recognize the thing but it says it has no audio output controls:


--> see the attached print Screens...

There is finally an OS X driver for MAYA 44 PCI.

More info here : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/25145-esi-juli-envy-24-with-osx86-any-progress/page-49?do=findComment&comment=1956868


Update : I can confirm it that it works great indeed! 64 bit on Mavericks, all bit depths, both outputs (one input, but not not tested that..)

Volume control works too. Although first i was able to mute it fully, now just turn it down very low, but not muting. Anyway its not that a big issue..
