VoodooHDA 2.8.5 for Mavericks (Slice + AnV) (Signed!)

Thank you, SPDIF works great on my ALC892, better than AppleHDA cause I got encoded digital audio in MIDI settings now. AC3 and DTS play perfect and it switches automatically to encoded audio. There are some issues though:

 

1. Each setting has 192khz init value, maybe it's better to set it to 44khz? with 192 I don't get sound.

 

2. On my HD4000 HDMI there is no playback at all. Can't play any song, the stream doesn't even start. 

 

3. Static hiss on analog audio, vectorize=true in info.plist doesn't help. (see edit3)

 

4. In prefpane I see only my NVIDIA 660 TI with four audio ports. No ALC892 and no HD4000 ports. (see edit3)

 

PS: Didn't test any inputs yet.

 

EDIT: dump added.

EDIT2: lspci dump and dsdt added.

 

EDIT3: Issue with static hiss (point 3) was solved with disabling nvidia card by setting: <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key><string>0x1E208086</string> 

So apparently the problem is the settings don't get initialized for internal HDA when nvidia is used. Also I can see all internal ports in prefpane now.

Working just fine with my HP Envy 17t-3200 with Beats Audio (and Subwoofer working by adding to the Nodes to Patch section).

Once again a great job Andy, can not wait for the weekend to test this with my sound card. :D

It sorts of works better than the previous build (ALC892);

 

- less noise per volume

- finally I can switch between my usb and onboard audio (was broken in the version I used)

 

 

 

There are 2 little snags that hold it back from being perfect for me:

 

- Doesn't show up in prefpane, but I can live with that

- Turning  the volume up and down works but has a very noticeable delay.

Using shift + volume keys doesn't give this delay, and the delay wasn't there with previous builds.

 

 

So overal it's a pretty good and I like it.

The prefpane entries will appear if you remove your graphics card by modifying the info.plist, see http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=454

 

I don't have the delay with alc892, try removing com.apple.audio.DeviceSettings.plist and com.apple.audio.SystemSettings.plist from /Library/Preferences/Audio and reboot, as described in the linked post above.

Doesn't remove the delay but does fix the prefpanel (had no doubt on that, btw also using a 660 Ti).

 

What's also noticeable about this delay; if you press the keys fast there's more of a delay than if you press it slowly 1 at a time.

Before (with regular 2.8.5 build) I didn't have this behaviour.

When I got some more time I might just compare the 2 for obvious changes in the .plist itself, about best I can do.

 

Just realized this: the shift + volume buttons just work like the regular way right now, while shift + volume buttons should be lineair but they are not.

Sorry Andy but your sources based on 2.7.0 even without Zenith432 improvements, without HDMI, Multichannel, many controllers missing.

I think you should look more carefully on sources 2.8.4

svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/voodoohda/code/ voodoohda-code

      Some users claim that using VoodooHDA they hear loud bump at system start and sound in system comes with noise.
      Although this can be repaired with existing drivers I propose a version that do this automatically.
      It started silently and have very clear output. The file is compiled as 32/64 and works from 10.6 up to 10.12.

      There is a VoodooHDA,prefPane compatible with Sierra
      VoodooHDA.prefPane-289.zip

       
      Now there is a version 2.9.0 by Zenith432.
      It can work with multichannel sound and play it on 5.1 analog system.

      AppleHDADisabler is not used. DSDT has a device HDAS and not HDEF so why there is no conflict with AppleHDA.

      Buongiorno a tutti.
       
      Io ho da poco effettuato l'installazione di High Sierra 10.13.6. Successivamente ho risolto qualche problema con i due monitor e ho messo i driver nvidia.
      Adesso devo risolvere il problema dell'audio.
       
      La mia scheda madre è: MSI Gaming M3 H270 con chipset audio ALC1220.
       
      Ho provato a installare lilu con appleALC e ho provato i vari codec(1,2,5,7,11) ma nulla, non funziona.
      Metto in allegato la cartella efi con tutto.
      Come posso risolvere?

      Hello, can't figure out why there's no Line-In input option with VoodooHDA, but I definetly have it in my built-in audio card on the motherboard.
      Thanks!
