Symphony driver updated
Apogee Electronics has released a new PCI-Express driver for its "Symphony" 32-channel PCI-Express card. The Universal Binary driver is designed to take special advantage of the power and technology in Apple's new Intel-based Mac Pro to achieve performance levels previously unattainable in native audio. The driver, in combination with Intel processors in the Mac Pro, lowers the latency of the Symphony PCI-Express card by over 50 percent into the 2ms range, according to the company. Apple's new Mac Pro supports up to 192 simultaneous channels of audio using the Symphony PCI Express card.
