    If possible could the code be updated for 64bit compability?

    The users in need for this are multiplying fast because the latest Snow Leopard preview builds are stable enough to use as main OS.

    Thx in advance

    Well, I've removed my Audigy 2 ZS because I got my onboard ALC889a working in 5.1 surround (with slightly better positional sound)

    +1 but...

    Doesn't snow leopard run 64 bit apps and have access to over 4GB RAM with the 32 bit kernel anyway?

    Also not alot of 64 bit apps about atm to take full advantage of it anyway.

    Would definitely be needed in the future but don't think it should be a priority if the current driver works in SL.

    So if you have >4gb ram do you need to run SL in 64bit mode thus requiring 64bit drivers for everything?

    IMHO 64bit support is a priority along with input recording suport. Thank you Eugene, keep up your good work.
