Duende Mac & PC software v2.1 is now online

From SSL's web site:

"New Features/Fixes in v2.1

Multiple Duende support

Up to 2 Duende units can now be used on any single PC or Mac, providing 64 mono plug-ins at 44.1/48kHz and 32 mono plug-ins at 88.2/96kHz.

If you have purchased Drumstrip for Duende and intend to use it in a multi Duende environment, please contact [email protected].

If working at 44.1/48kHz we recommend the two Duende units are connected to separate firewire busses. Please see below for a list of tested PCI, PCI-e and Express34 firewire interfaces.

If you are working at 88.2/96kHz sample rate then the two Duende units must be connected to separate firewire busses. If this is not done then neither Duende will function correctly.

Please be aware that on Intel based Mac systems, an additional firewire bus must always be provided for the second Duende unit. This is due a limitation of the Mac OS X operating system and is out of SSLs control. The issue is not present on PPC based Macs.

Lower Kernel usage on Mac systems

There has been a 50% improvement in the amount of kernel usage when Duende is used on a PPC or Intel Mac. This will improve general system performance for most users as it frees up resources for other peripherals and software.

System requirements:

Please note that Mac OS 10.4.10 must be used with Duende v2.1 software"

If I klick on the homepage of SSL on version 2.1 for MAC I get Duende_Installer_2_1.dmg. after doubleclicking the .dmg i get duende installer 2.0.17? what´s wrong with it?

2.0.17 ist correct. internal they write this instead of 2.1.17, don´t know why but it was same with driver 2.0.

btw. PC driver is now much better, works with 100% loaded plugins.

how´s the mac-driver working?
