Lynx Studio Technology is proud to announce the availability of the Lynx CoreAudio Driver Build 53 for OS X.  The driver may be downloaded from Lynx_OSX_53.zip.

Installation Notes

  1. If you installed a previous version of this driver, please uninstall it first. To uninstall the driver, please download the Lynx OS X Driver Uninstaller application and run it. Once you have uninstalled the previous driver, please be sure to restart your computer before installing the newer version.
  2. Double-click on the ZIP file to decompress the OS X driver package.
  3. Select the 16-Channel or 32-Channel driver by opening the associated folder. 
  4. Double-click on the Lynx_OSX.pkg file to start the driver installation process.
  5. Simply follow the instructions presented. You will be prompted for your administrator password and you must enter the password to install the driver.
  6. Restart the computer.
  7. When the computer restarts, the driver will be loaded automatically.

Starting with OS X 10.7, the Preferences folder is now marked as Read-Only by default.  This prevents Lynx Mixer from saving the last known scene so that upon restarting the computer it can be restored.  To fix this, you must manually change /Library/Preferences to allow Read-Write to everyone.

Revision History

Version 1.0 Build 53   March 13, 2012

1.  Added full support for Thunderbolt expansion chassis.  Implements hot-plugging and unplugging as well as sleep mode.  Please note that Thunderbolt expansion chassis with the Lynx Audio Card must be connected and enabled when powering on the Macintosh otherwise the boot-loader will not allocate resources for the device and the driver will not be able to load.

2.  Defaulted "Allow Clock Source Change while Active" to TRUE.  Previously this control might get set to FALSE when doing a Restore Defaults, which would keep some applications from being able to change the sample rate until the streaming was stopped.

Here is a photo of the AES16e inside the Sonnet Tech Echo Express PCI Express to Thunderbolt chassis while connected to a 17" Mac Book Pro with Thunderbolt.  You can see on the screen the Lynx Mixer and the About This Mac showing the Thunderbolt connection to the AES16e. 

This solution works very well.

Here is a photo of two AES16e cards inside the Magma ExpressBox 3T.  Also working just fine with the Mac Book Pro and Build 53 driver.
