[ via XLR8YourMac ] M-Audio Revolution Driver 1.2.9 adds support for the following:
I totally agree!
The drivers are crap.
Crackling noises, encoding errors, no sound output in some apps (bascially ALL games), major stability issues, etc.
The support is a bad joke. All they could reply was that they work on releasing Tiger drivers, but that it might take some time (3 months(!) after Tiger was released).
DO NOT BUY THIS CARD! $99 wasted!
I agree 100%. These guys seem to write Mac drivers as an afterthought -- simply in order to get some extra cash from a PCI audio card they market mainly to the WinTel crowd -- with all the extra features such as EAX, Sensaura, etc. All the while, the Mac drivers more than languish -- even the basic IO functions (which are all we get, I might add) simply suck.
Perhaps their new sugar daddy (AVID) might see fit to throw a few more scraps (as in DOLLARS) to the Mac development department -- you know, the single guy sitting in the 4x4 cubicle in the basement, with the RED STAPLER!
This is just as bad as the Mac SoundBlaster Live! fiasco -- I mean, c'mon, people!
This is just the most lousy, horrible attempt at a software driver that I've EVER dealt with.
Every version that I've installed since I had the misfortune of buying this piece of junk card has given me TONS of trouble!
AVOID THIS CARD LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!
This is ALMOST as bad as the Sonica Theater (whick was a REAL piece of JUNK!).
I've had more trouble than this thing is even worth!
I'd install the LOUSY, LOUSY software and it'll be fine for a while, then it will just give me 5 channels of the exact same source...not true surround. It'll be going along fine and then crap out!
I've learned not to even try to get support out of these fools (M-audio... the only thing they know how to do is guide you through a reinstall! I knew that after a few hours of dealing with this piece of crap!
AVOID ANYTHING THAT SAYS "M-AUDIO"...The support is a joke!
Just purchased the card from a friend yesterday and installed this latest version on both Jaguar & Panther (2 seperate HDs with OSs on each).
No problems yet, although, I previously had the Sonica Theater and it was a HUUUUGE piece of CRAP! Nothing but problems! Finally gave it away...
Well, we'll see...
M-Audio hasn't been helpful at all in the past (in my experience, anyway...)
Even with the sequence of Panther updates that have followed the last M-Audio drivers release (v1.2.9 ... NINE months ago!), I'm still experiencing kernel panic errors and applications freezes that are related to the M-Audio card on my set up (dual G4 MDD, OS 10.3.5 ) ...
What's happened to the Mac support of this audio card?
New drivers were expected by the end of last february ... where are they?
nothing but trouble. stay clear.
Still getting kernal panics with 1.2.9 and OS 10.3.2
Please, I'm begging you...HIRE PEOPLE WHO CAN CODE!.... 1.2.9 worked with 10.3.1, but I'm getting KP's in 10.3.2... Whats the use of having an expensive mac if I can't use it..
Still getting kernla panics : (
