Now you can use Antelope, PreSonus, Slate Digital, Focusrite and Apogee Digital Thunderbolt and FireWire Audio Interface and NAS on Custom PC Builds and Laptops with macOS

Overview



It has been so long since few Audio Interface from the brands like Antelope, PreSonus, Slate Digital, Focusrite and Apogee Digital doesn't works well on the custom PC Builds and Laptops with macOS installed on it. Where, Antelope is famous in the community for its bad impression as its driver doesn't works at all in such environment. This issue is from very long time. Have said that, people have been continuously blaming Antelope for their bad implementation of interface drivers which is not "friendly" for the users who are having custom PC Builds and Laptops with macOS installed on it. This is not the case with UAD and some other Audio Interface which works perfect on these builds, without any issue. This is one of the reason why studio users are more opting for UAD and friendly Audio Interface.

Almost 3yrs ago, one of our friend asked to check whether we can get his "Antelope ZenTour" which is a Thunderbolt 2 Audio Interface and after lots of tests and research, it never worked via Thunderbolt connectivity. The Laptop had no issues when connecting to other Thunderbolt Devices such as UAD or other Thunderbolt Drives. Later on, we began working on this project and since then, we have implemented Hotplug, removing Thunderbolt errors and issues. The implementation for Hotplug has been already discussed and is available in the public domain. Recently, in 2020, just for another try, we did a PC build and to just check, we used the same ZenTour interface to check and this time, it was a Desktop, with full hotplug functionality and still there was no sign of success.

We started to contact friends to check if they had more Audio Interface who were facing the same issue and we got to know about other brands such as PreSonus, Slate Digital, Focusrite and Apogee Digital which were also having similar issues. Upon our investigation, we noticed two scenario which is described below.

Case #1
In this case, the Audio Interface will be detected in the IOReg, but the Audio Interface will not be detected in its control panel and the Audio Input and Output will not work as the audio cannot be processed due to partial loading of drivers.

Case #2
In this case, the Audio Interface will be detected in the IOReg and its control panel. The drivers will load and the interface will also have Input and Output Control but no Audio will be processed. Hence, unable to use it in any DAW.

Upon doing some quick research over the internet, we came to know that there are many users having such issues and mostly with Antelope. From a reference, few users mentioned that it worked on Sierra but after an update, it no longer worked and we had to try on various macOS release since Sierra 10.12 to Big Sur 11.2.3 and all of them with no success. When doing a firm investigation, we came to know that there is something which is being fulfilled by real Mac and that's what making the driver to load fully and as a result, the interface is being initialized and working as expected. "We really don't accept this fact that these brands such as Antelope, PreSonus and Slate Digital has written bad drivers or their implementation is bad. In all good faith, we strongly discard this fact, for Antelope to be more specific." If that's the case, it was not supposed to work perfect on real Macs. No matter how many times you connect the interface, it always works on a real Mac. Of course, in some of their drivers, firmwares, there are bugs which is very normal in the software industry and it's not a big deal. This issue was not limited to Thunderbolt only, but complex setups with FireWire too (AppleFireWire>TB2>TB3). Having said that, we started the research work and found the difference from the IOReg which has been provided below.

Upon comparing both the IOReg, its very clear that "IOAudioEngineUserClient" is not being loaded which loads the core audio and make the interface initialization successful and leading it to a perfect condition where the device has it's Input and Output Control and audio signals being processed through it. This also attach a process for the Antelope Launcher. The next step was to find out the dependency of the IOAudioEngineUserClient and implementing it to achieve a full functionality within these Thunderbolt Audio Interface.

The next step was to find out the dependency of the IOFireWireUserClient and implementing it to achieve a full functionality within these FireWire Audio Interface.

The project was on and off since ZenTour and whenever we got time, we tested it. Recently, we tested it on Big Sur with new drivers, Thunderbolt Local Node and DROM implementation, along with the Hotplug, still with no success. We collected the research work from various sources and after spending countless of hours which turned into years and almost after 3yrs, finally we came with a fix. With our efforts and the fixes we discovered, we have finally made it possible. Now, it's also possible to use NAS from brands like "Drobo and Pegasus." With that in addition, the FireWire has been also tested and the fix works for both. You can find the status in the table referenced below.

Project Status and Rights


Currently undergoing additional test scenarios in multiple hardware and software environments, initial results are staggering.

"This is a massive success for the EliteMacx86 team. We set out to accomplish something that couldn't be done for years and the results have already proven instrumental through testing and pre-release, providing a robust solution for Professional Audio users with unparalleled and seamless Thunderbolt expansion to help streamline their workflows." - JW, Founder of EliteMacx86

Three years of R&D and Twenty-five out of twenty-five unique hardware scenarios deployed during initial testing confirms EliteMac86's exclusive supplemental software and firmware modification package works 100% of the time.

In all good faith, EliteMacx86 reserves all the exclusive rights to provide any further details on this project. At our soul discretion, whether to make it available in the public domain or not.

EliteMacx86 is bringing support for Antelope Audio Interface users!

As you know, We've gotten Antelope Thunderbolt Audio Interfaces on Custom PC Builds and Laptops starting from macOS Sierra 10.12 to macOS Big Sur 12.2.3 working, with full functionality.

There's another exciting development! We're testing internally and expanding compatibility to include old Macs, as far back as 2009!

What does this mean?
Our end goal is getting this solution in the hands of as many people as possible. To do this, an automated software is needed, otherwise we'd be overwhelmed with support requests, and problems. A mass solution is in development! This will be amazing for not only custom users, but Antelope users with normal, old Macintoshes. This is a huge logistical undertaking, and we've already spent on/off 3 years resolving it, and it takes multiple developers and dedicated time to do this. Multiple parties are involved to try and get the best solution for the community. Stay tuned for one of the most refined solutions yet!

In the meantime, we are taking personal support requests for individual setup. The solution is incredibly complex, but we understand some studios would rather have a solution ASAP. We are accepting this work on a limited basis, and because it pulls us away from the larger, mass project; it is a paid service. We essentially create the required setup based just on your system!

We are not here to confuse people who may think that this is still an “impossible” thing to achieve. It may not be right for you to get the custom work done before something larger materializes, but if you do choose to opt for this solution, we will make sure it will work perfectly for you!

Indeed. After so long, we've finally made it! We're still testing our solution under several hardware scenario. As soon as we have any updates on it, we'll update the thread.

I had to sign up and congratulate you all, this is fantastic news! I will wait for a public release, but I am incredibly excited and grateful for all of your hard work. I've got an Antelope Orion Studio rev. 2017 connected USB 2.0 to a 2010 Mac Pro 5,1 12-core 3.3Ghz. My flashed Titan Ridge is collecting dust as I have not been able to use it and had given up hope that someone would find a solution. I may get a few more years out of this ol' thing after all.

I'll be watching this thread, cheers!
