Echo Console 5.5 issues

Hello guys,

 

I've upgraded my Dark Fire RIP with the new firmware and Console application on my Mac Pro 8-core. However, I can use the whole package only at 44.1 or 48 kHz, because selecting the other supported resolutions (88 and 96) cause the app to hangs. I cannot select them either in Guitar Rig 4 or Ableton because I have the same results.

 

Anyone experienced the same?

Hello,

 

So far, we have not been able to reproduce this, despite trying with several different Macs and several versions of OS X.

 

We will continue to investigate this issue. In the meantime, one option would be to downgrade your RIP to the original 5.0 firmware. To do so, you will need to download the 5.0 Mac console from this page:

 

http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Les-Paul/Gibson-USA/DarkFire/Software.aspx

 

Once you have installed and opened the 5.0 console, select the Settings tab and click the About button. Then, click on "Update RIP".

 

Due to the holiday break, we will not be able to address this as quickly as we would like. I will post an update the week of January 4th, 2010.

 

Regards,

Hello everyone,

 

While we have not been able to reproduce this problem, we have made improvements to the device firmware that should help.

 

We are in the process of testing these changes. We should be able to post an update by the end of this week.

 

Regards,

 

Matt

Thank you Matt, you're very supportive.

 

The RIP is a cool piece of gear. Any chance that in the near future Mac users like me would have a multiclient driver to use more Echo interfaces without using aggregatre devices under Core Audio?

Usually, CoreAudio aggregate devices introduces a lot of latency.

I tried the RIP with other brands' devices and the results aren't very satisfactory... I'd like to have a proprietary driver (similar to the RME one) to use the RIP and i.e. the Audiofire Pre8 daisychained with the Firewire connection as an unique device, to have simultaneously the Dark Fire input and digital outputs...

I'll start a discussion with Apple to see if there's anything that can be done about this.
