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
Firstly, thanks for the great project! I have tried AppleALC, toledo and hacks from others around the internet and only just have sound with voodooHDA. Tried various Realtek ALC codecs and this sound cards is extremely problematic. For now I have a problem really, really estrange. The board is GYGABYTE SNIPER B6 with ALC 1150. Some times sound work fine and some times no hardware detected. Randomly. If I restart system 10 times, 3 or 4 times it will work, randomly.The question: why? Some ideia? My specs: GYGABYTE SNIPER B6 - fully working OS X Sierra 10.12 - fully working Tried: TOLEDA - not working AppleALC - not working Thanks in advance.
Great project!! Really useful enabling the audio ports available on my machine. Please help with one gotcha.. A lot of software assumes each audio device is uniquely named, however HDMI shows up 8x in my machine. Could the driver enumerate them with device and port? Ex... (missing the "Digital-out" part of the name) HDMI11, HDMI12, HDMI13, HDMI14 - for first device HDMI21, HDMI22, HDMI23, HDMI24 - for second device
Thank you, it's work on Hp pavilion 2313tx, very simple to use
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.
