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.
Thanks for Voodoohda, it's excellent!
Great Audio Driver
fast download and works, recommended.
