Topic: Compatibility to Mac OS X Lion
The golden master of Lion does no longer show some performance problems and errors that we saw earlier, so it seems Apple has fixed those.
Unfortunately they seem to have introduced a new bug. When changing the sample rate several things can happen:
- playback is garbled for several seconds
- the application hangs for several seconds
- a mixture of both
With programs like Logic, which needs several seconds to switch anyway, the error is not easily noticable. With iTunes it is.
This error also affects Apples own FireWire driver (it works internally similar to the RME HDSP driver), so is not caused by our drivers. We have informed Apple and hope a fix will come soon.
This error is no showstopper, and if you switch sample rate not so often you most likely don't even notice it. Apart from this Lion seems to work ok with audio.
