UA-25EX advance mode for mac (bit depth more than 24bit?) UA25EX

I read the UA-25EX can use core audio without any drivers but unless you use the edirol driver, you can't record more than 16bit. It's called advance mode. I was a little putoff about buying a card that has to use the driver to record at 24bit.... can any fellow mac owners comment on how well this card works?

"The UA-25EX will operate at 44.1 kHz/16-bit mode regardless of the setting of the sample rate select switch (19)."

"In Advanced mode, signals are transferred between the UA-25EX and the computer at a bit depth of 24 bits and a sample rate of 44.1/48/96 kHz.
Choose Advanced mode if you’re using software that supports 24-bit audio, such as the Cakewalk series or if you’re using ASIO-compatible or CoreAudio-compatible software that is able to record, play, and edit high-quality audio, such as Cubase or Logic."

I know you were asking for Mac users so sorry if it's not quite what you're asking but I'm a PC user and have the UA-25. I have never had a problem with this card.

you just flick a switch on the back and it's in advanced mode. nothing to it. My UA-25 works perfectly on 3 separate computers I use without ever giving me grief.

no, i thank you for the reply!

i just find it weird to use an external driver to get 24bit...Using external drivers on the mac has given me problems before. Shoddy programmed emu drivers have been a pain in the backside! Bad experience but good to hear no probs with the ua-25. I hope it's true with the mac?

well this is edirol (Roland) and I never heard or experienced problems with their drivers. But it can't hurt to wait and see what Mac users have to say...
