    Default Audio 6/10 firmware update

    Today... is a good day! The new Audio 6/10 firmware introduces Core Audio support, not only making them iPad compatible, but finally fixing the USB 3.0 issue for Windows devices (well, for me at least). Appears to be stable!

    Grab it here: http://co.native-instruments.com/ind...raktor_Audio_6
    (Note: this is a firmware update, not a driver update, so you can't find it in service center)

    While we're at it, anyone care to confirm if Audio 6/10 (with updated firmware) also works with the iPad DJ Player app? Dev claims it does, but I fear NI has implemented some proprietary code in Traktor DJ to add support for their sound cards..

    core audio is not something that they can restrict to only Traktor DJ if it were restricted it was not core audio

    I doubt it. I have an Audio 8 and they probably won't release for mine either.

    it's NI's way of saying they are becoming obsolete. probably time to upgrade to a 10 soon..

    Sometimes the hardware is not capable of certain features as well though

    No firmware updates for 4/8 in sight, but let's not forget there is a beta driver from late january (that I just noticed) for all interfaces which supposedly alleviates some of the USB 3.0 issues... that's at least something. Hopefully it doesn't stay a beta.

    "Changes in Firmware version 47 (Traktor Audio 6) and version 48 (Traktor Audio 10): Added support for iOS for Traktor Audio 6 and Traktor Audio 10."

    I thought they explained they are now class compliant, not core audio support. So class compliant implies they will function with any class compliant audio device/app.

    Nope, definitely Core Audio (see http://www.native-instruments.com/en...pecifications/)
    I've once read on the NI board that the current Audio series would probably never be USB Class Compliant, because of something with asynchronous buffering iirc.
