Info page: Hammerfall® Series Driver for Mac OS 9.x®
Please first decompress the driver archive
Drag the new file 'Hammerfall Driver' to the System folder. It will be installed automatically into the 'Extension' folder. Confirm the system's message to complete the installation. Now the driver file should be found in the 'Extension' folder, see example to the right.
Configuration of the Hammerfall is done through
the Settings dialog, which can be called from within any ASIO compatible
software (for example Audio/System/ASIO Control Panel.) To be able to call
up the Settings dialog at any time we recommend to create an Alias on the
desktop. To create an Alias select 'RME DIGI Settings' with the mouse cursor,
press and hold the Apple and Alt keys on your keyboard, and drag 'RME DIGI
Settings' to the desired location. With this all RME cards in the system
can be configured easily even without starting an ASIO software.
No problems known.
General PCI related problems
The following symptoms are typical for PCI related problems:
These problems may occur with older computers
(prior to G3.) They can be solved in most cases by simply using a different
slot, or by exchanging slots with other PCI cards (like SCSI controllers
or graphics cards.)
The Hammerfall series is compatible to all major ASIO applications, like Cubase VST, emagic Logic, Opcode Studio Vision PRO, Prosoniq Sonic WORX, TC SPARK, Peak from Bias, Motu Digital Performer, Max/MSP from Cycling '74 and Super Collider.
Peak crashes in ASIO mode as soon as latency is changed
This only happens while running. Stop playback and record. Under Audio/Sound Out/ASIO de-activate 'Active in background'. Now latency can be changed without problems.
The function 'Reset Devices' of Cubase seems to do nothing
This was a bug in Cubase. 'Reset Devices' currently only resets MIDI devices, but neither audio devices nor its internal audio engine.
