Save Mlan on Mac OSX

IMPORTANT UPDATE: ON SEPTEMBER 2, 2008, YAMAHA RELEASE MLAN DRIVER VERSION 1.1.4 FOR THE MAC. THIS RELEASE FIXES ISSUES 2-7 LISTED BELOW. YAMAHA HAVE COMMITED TO FIXING ISSUE 1 BY DECEMBER 2008. A GREAT THANKS TO YAMAHA AS MLAN ON THE MAC LIVES ON! Yamaha have been able to get Mlan integrated in Apple\'s OS and Core Audio, which is supposedly a great thing for Mlan... But as a result they claim that this is also supposedly why they cannot control the timing of updates to the drivers... Mlan users on the Mac haven\'t seen an update to a barely functional Mlan driver on the Mac since 2004. This is what we are waiting for: (1) Sync from a device other than the Mac, (2) No more CPU bursts, (3) No more random offset, (4) GP able to act as an actual patchbay. (5) The new drivers should be backward compatible to at least Mac OS 10.4.4 (6) The new drivers should be compatible with PPC G4 and G5 computers (7) The new drivers should be free for all present owners of Mlan equipment using Mac OSX

    1 year ago Comments: I've spoken with Yamaha several times and they strongly believe that they do not need to take their responsibility. I hope by signing this petition, they eventually will notice that ignoring the project studios is not an option. Other option would be to make the drivers public / open source, so others can maintain it.
