3rd Party Drivers – OSx86

Posted by Ahsan Tasneem | 12:41 PM | , , , , , , , | 0 comments »






This is a list of known 3rd party, independently developed drivers for OSx86 which aren't shipped with the Standard OSx86 Installation DVD. So feel free to add your own tested and working drivers.
If you don't find a driver for your device, you may also try to patch an existing kernel extension to add support for your device.

Unitor 8 MK II
10.4.9, 10.5.0
You need the Universal EmagicUSBMIDIDriver.plugin file from the 7.2 Logic Express Installation Disc. Mount the Logic Exp 7.2.dmg and use Pacifist to extract the file and install to the /Library/Audio/Midi Drivers folder. Open Audio MIdi Setup and the Unitor 8 MK II should be there. Probably also works for the AMT8, and MT4. This file isnt easy to get unless you have a Logic install disk so i posted it on rapidshare. I dont use Logic! Tested with Reason 4.0. Works!
