Topic: Digiface AVB support for Mac now available
The Mac supports AVB natively and thus there is no need to use a costly and external, third party solution to have AVB available on a Mac computer. That was our thought as well, and the reason the Digiface AVB was released as Windows only. But we quickly got a lot of requests from frustrated customers that wanted the same ease of use plus low latency plus TotalMix on their Macs, like the Digiface AVB delivers it under Windows. So here we go - the Digiface AVB is now ready to be used on a Mac computer! Our interface does not use the Mac's AVB implementation but RME's, and gives access to AVB as 128 channel USB 3 audio interface, including TotalMix FX support (but no FX) .
What you need:
- the latest released driver 3.15. It includes TotalMix FX and full support for the Digiface AVB.
- the latest firmware version. If your Digiface AVB is below 204 download the official Mac flash update tool, 204 is in there.
- RME's AVB controller to awake and access the Digiface AVB.
- Mac OS X 10.11 or up
As this version is our very first implementation I opted to release it here before it will be available on our website in a few days.
