    • A rare BSOD could occur when receiving MIDI input data
    • The driver could exhibit audio dropouts and large spikes of CPU usage on some Windows 7 systems
    • On Windows 7, the "Safe Mode Level 1 - 3" Operation Modes are now better at allowing the driver to operate on a system with a high DPC latency (at the expense of additional audio latency). The minimum ASIO buffer size has increased when using one of the Safe Modes on Windows 7
    • The Control Panel's System tab now reports more details about the system configuration and an OHCI chipset's capabilities
    • A BSOD could occur when changing WDM settings with certain WDM channel mapping configurations.
    • A workaround has been added to avoid an intermittent BSOD that could occur in Microsoft's new 1394 OHCI bus driver on Windows 7 64-bit systems with a quad-core processor
    • A BSOD could occur because of an error in the driver's WDM channel mapping logic.
    • A BSOD could occur when attempting to view the WDM Microphone's properties
    • The driver's clock synchronization logic has been improved
    • A rare BSOD could occur when an ASIO host application was opening its connection to the driver
    • The ASIO driver now reports the correct digital latency on Windows 7

    • To avoid confusion, "Control Panel & Drivers" is now always ticked of

    Control Panel

    • SK48: +4 switch was inversed. Fixed
    • On rare occasions, the Studio Konnekt 48 Mixer would collaps. FixedOn rare occasions, the Studio Konnekt 48 mixers internal data structure would corrupt. Fixed

    Firmware:

    • Impact Twin: In some cases MIDI was not available. Fixed

    VERSION 2.5.0 (R6886) FOR MAC

    MAC Driver: Version 3.5.3

    Supports 10.5.x/10.6.x
    • The driver has been updated to include Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" 64-bit driver support.
    • If a device was attached while certain applications were active (iTunes and applications that use QuickTime, including web browsers), the CPU usage would increase and these applications' audio playback could become distorted.
    • The uninstaller application would not correctly detect and uninstall the driver on a Mac running OS X 10.6 if the driver had been installed before the Mac was upgraded to Mac OS X 10.6.
    • If the user's language was set to a non-English language, MIDI could
    • Channel names were not displayed in Audio MIDI Setup's speaker configuration window
    • The driver could fail to load at system bootup with a device attached
    • The driver would hang when used with a device that used a large channel count and a particular channel configuration
    • A Kernel Panic could occur in low memory conditions
    • MIDI output is now more accurately aligned with the audio
    • The driver will now ignore any devices that are not on the same firewire bus as the master device
    • Using large Core Audio buffer sizes on PowerPC Macs would often result in audio glitches
    • The driver's streaming engine has been improved to minimize CPU usage
    • Audio could become silent or distorted if other real time processes delayed the driver's streaming engine from processing its FireWire audio
    • The driver is now much faster at reconfiguring its streaming engine, for instance after selecting a new sample rate
    • When loading Cubase projects that used different sample rates, the driver would sometimes not switch to the correct sample rate
    • After attaching a device for the first time, a device could sometimes appear in Audio MIDI Setup with 0 input channels and 0 output channels and could not be used for audio input or output. The workaround was to toggle the sample rate or clock source to get it to be republished correctly
    • On rare occasions, the driver could hang when a device was removed
    • In the Control Panel application's Event Log window, the device lock changed bits were displayed in reverse order
    • The driver's streaming engine would unnecessarily restart twice when a device's channel configuration would change because of a change to the sample rate
    • The driver's clock synchronization logic has been improved
    • A device's nickname could become corrupted when it was shortened
    • On rare occasions, a device's nickname would not be restored correctly after a system power-cycle

    Control Panel

    • SK48: +4 switch was inversed. Fixed.

    • Smaller adjustments to the installer

    VERSION 2.4.1 (R6376) MAC & PC

    New driver for PC:
    Driver 3.5.0

    • The driver's performance on a system with high DPC latencies has been improved
    • On Windows 7 64-bit, Microsoft's new 1394 stack would sometimes fail to deallocate the isochronous bandwidth, requiring a system restart to restore the driver's functionality
    • A BSOD could occur on multi-processor/core systems when the audio streaming configuration was changed or when it recovered from a dropout
    • On Windows 7, the driver's minimum buffer size was not reported correctly

    • After putting a Windows 7 system to sleep, Microsoft's new 1394 stack was causing the driver to hang when the system was resumed
    • When using stacked devices, the order of the ASIO input channels could be flipped depending on the order that the devices were attached
