Core audio vs "Bit accurate"

  • I don't know when this happened but I've noticed there are now 2 Virus Ti audio driver options on my system (seems to be since the last update for Mavericks compatibility) - Core audio and a new "Bit accurate" option. What are the differences between them and which should I use?

  • Doesn't even seem to be mentioned in the changelog or manual addendum. I can't find a single thing about this new driver option. Does it overcome the 16 bit limit in the older drivers perhaps? If so I can't see any additional options to change to 24bit or higher.

  • this is what they told me when I asked:


    The "bit accurate" is a different driver that bypasses CoreAudio altogether, but this makes no difference with the general use of the Virus TI.
