VoodooHDA is an open source audio driver for devices compliant with the Intel High Definition Audio specification. It is intended as a replacement for AppleHDA on Mac OS X with support for a wide range of audio controllers and codecs.
- automatic recognition of all HDA codecs
- test jacks for autoswitch
- control panel for fine tuning
- sound treatment includes stereo enhancements
- since v2.8 it works with two sound cards
I helped design it ;-)
i found a bug, it suddenly reboots my system with panic kernel. I use optical cable and motherboard with ALC889 (Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4(v.1)), OSX Mavericks. To recreate this bug: just choose SPDIF-out (Orange Rear), then download MPlayerX from App Store. In preferences of this app choose Detect SPDIF digital output automatically, then find any movie, and pushing right mouse -> Open With -> Other -> choose MPlayerX and check Always Open With. I don't know whether we need to do all of these movements, but when i tried it 5 times i always had reboot with panic kernel. All of these started when VLC player suddenly reboot my system. I would be great full if you fix it somehow, i can provide all needed info. Now i switched back to AppleHDA and will wait of a new VoodooHDA version, as for me it sounds much better.
A working replacement for system-provided audio drivers - doesn't require patching/re-installing on every update, supports all consumer HD Audio-copliant codecs. It may give you some trouble though if you don't know what you're doing.
It works for my sound card intel high definition audio of M!7X R4, but the sound of each program are not being controlled by system volume. They are always very loudly when opened.
Very good project but can't get it to manage my Creative Sound Blaster X-FI Xtreme audio PCI E OEM with S/PDIF (no sound at all on mavericks).
