SoundBlaster Live! for Mac OS X Makes Progress
10:59 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
In a post to the IMG hardware forum, Brian Souder, a representative for Creative Labs, revealed that progress is being made on Mac OS X drivers for the Sound Blaster Live! PCI audio card. He hints that a beta with basic input/output support may be released in the future. Souder also notes that the driver design is modular, so it might be possible to re-use the code for the next-generation Sound Blaster Audigy, if they decide to pursue that endeavor. Here is the rest of his post:
Ok - Here's an update guys. I got an e-mail from the people helping me with the "SB Live for OS X" project. It seems they have the inputs working on the Live card, and feel we may be able to release the first beta with the "BASIC" I/O working. The nice thing about the design is that it is modular, with the hope that we may be able to re-use code for an Audigy card later on. The lead programmer is going to try to get me some screen shots for MWNY - maybe tomorrow or Thursday. I'm not sure what day I am going up. This is a project I am doing independent of Creative for the moment. Hopefully I will have more good news in the coming weeks.This is great news if you are still hanging on to your Sound Blaster Live in hopes of an OS X solution. We'll be sure you keep you updated of any further developments.
