meanwhile i have to admit:
*driver support for nonconformous hardware seems to be really difficult.
+and don’t we all use special interfaces?!?
*expectedly support for 64bit versions is worse than for the 32bit ones.
you can’t blame Bill Gates for this; it’s definitely the lack of providers of special hardware.
understandably a small garage company can’t afford immediate support for all brandnew OS.
but it’s not only the small ones!
preliminary Hardware Blacklist for Windows 7 Ultimate 64 RC Build 7100
Midiman Midisport Uno USB
a really widely spread MIDIinterface with thousands of users:
the distributor “M-Audio” which belongs to “AVID” does big business and is for sure a globalplayer. surely lots of you know/have this little piece.
they still even don’t provide drivers for Vista64!! so no wonder that they don’t make a secret that Windows 7-drivers for MIDIinterfaces not even started to be developed
maybe they want to stop selling MIDIinterfaces. my next one will not be from M-Audio.
USBDMX2 from Soundlight (OEM from Sunlite/Nicolaudie)
is meanwhile an old USB DMXinterface, but fast and reliable.
this is only from interest if you already have one. newer models aren’t supported by vvvv anyway. see this thread and also this thread
by now i didn’t get managed to install the drivers, which is a real pity for me.
