**** Update 2018 - M-Audio Complete Driver Anthology for OS 9 is available here *****
http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,4438.0.html

just an update to anyone needing to download m-audio drivers
they have totally screwed the site downloads on the american/usa/canadian sites
http://www.m-audio.com/support/drivers
not sure if its temporarily screwed but i have a good feeling that its been changed by someone obviously contracted by inmusic that has little understanding of how they've altered the usefullness + functionality of this driver download pages interface..

the japanese site is so far untouched + not yet screwed up so i urge everyone to
visit http://www.m-audio.jp/ instead.. maybe load it up in a google chrome browser so it automatically does the translation


heres a direct link to the japanese driver interface which is still the same as it used to be
http://www.m-audio.jp/index.php?do=support&tab=driver

not sure if they will soon update + screw the japanese site aswell so i urge anyone to back up their own drivers
as the american site no longer lists mac os drivers.. i tried and it said "no results"
and it lists every single os for every single device now on the american site
rather then listing only the operating systems supported for that device..

really stupid. m-audio is a dead brand now..  and it has been since avid destroyed it.
RIP Midiman/M-audio

its a real shame.

I RECCOMMEND WE CREATE A SINGLE DOWNLOAD WITH ALL THE M-AUDIO MAC OS 9 DRIVERS AND HOST IT HERE ON THIS SITE AS IT MAY BE ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THESE DOWNLOADS ARE REMOVED FROM THE JAPANESE SITE ASWELL.

no problem. someone had to do it!
m-audio's new web management staff are apparently totally incoherent of the detrimental changes they have done to a system that was working.....
they must be taking after Apple's example in screwing their old customers by removing links + downloads that support for their own legacy products.

The macos9 drivers are still on M-Audio's site - what are you talking about Chris?

You just have to scroll down to find them - I don't know what the fuss is all about
M-Audio OS9 Drivers?

Chris give it another try by going to M-Audio drivers and choose an interface that
definitely had OS9 Drivers then scroll until you find it - I'm sure you will -
Check again you will be pleasantly surprised.

Jakl..
unless you are loading a different site then i am, you are incorrect in saying that the drivers are there.. yes it shows up in the menu, but when u click "Show results" the results that previously were easily available are missing...

they changed the web coding of the driver downloading interface. the japanese site still uses the old "working" version but for it to work properly u must have japanese language character set installed your browser/system

see the attached jpg.. where the audiophile usb no longer shows the proper download for the driver... its the same for many many interfaces that worked just fine no longer show the needed driver files.

actually.. cross checking with the japanese site.. that is the right file... but someones renamed it incorrectly to indicate "OSX" on the american site
??

regardless of this one example there are many other discrepencies
the m-audio site also used to host drivers for the evolution keyboards
and those drivres have also been removed from the m-audio site completely

ok u know what.. ive just checked and could find alot of the stuff has been sorted now under "Legacy"

i swear to god these files were not there just a few days ago!!  ;D ;D
they must have gone in and fixed some things that were broken in the last few days or hours.....!

 ;D

i had some difficulty finding them just last night.. and i got a few msgs from people asking me for help to find them .. so there must have been a reason for both

there is a greater problem with what theyve changed tho
if you cross reference between the japanese version + the american version
when selecting a group, and then an interface on the japanese site..
it shows you *only the supported os choices* on the right
so it effectively acts as a list you can easily look at to see what interface is supported on what os ..

now that theyve changed the american site, it always lists *every os there is* in the rightmost column.. and u must press "show results" to "check" to see if there is a file..

the old system was easier + better
as u can see from the one example of the audiophile usb mac os 9 driver being renamed to "osx" someone who doesnt know shit has gone in and changed alot of stuff to do with the actual files + how they are sorted + how the interface works.......  guaranteed theres some other things missing, resorted, or Obfuscated somehow

Hi Guys

I am still on the way to re-build my studio MDD unused for the last 5 years...
Just got a BRAND NEW deadstock Audiophile 2496 on an Italian Music second-hand market

Just a question.
IS the bundled CD the correct OS9 driver for the card or do I have to look for an update, here in the site?

This link: http://www.macos9lives.com/downloads/MAudioDeltaV2.sea

is listed as the right driver to download but unfortunately, it seems not to work anymore.
Any help appreciated.

PS: the intention is to make the card to be used with Cubase VST 5.1 and Nuendo 1.52.
Any issue (if there is one..) pertaining the card (installation problems, functionality bugs), would be appreciated them to be known

Thank you and sorry for my "donkey's USA-English"

Hi all,

Today I have uploaded the legacy Mac OS9.x compatible M-Audio Device Drivers to the Apple Mac Repository.
They comprise Mac OS9.x drivers for USB, FireWire, PCI and other.
These drivers are now no more to be found on the M-Audio website.
Njoy!

https://web.archive.org/web/20040629062228/http://www.m-audio.com:80/images/global/drivers/
ive just located this link on the web archive..
i think ive come across this before in the past but i was not careful to write down the url
its a directory view of the raw directory that contained the driver files! from (June 2004)
they must have made some type of mistake on the permissions for a short period
during the many different re-designs of the m-audio site

not sure if every file is downloadable but it is such an impresive list that i couldnt keep it under my hat
contains both windows + mac drivers
take a look here if you are searching for a specific driver

i´m searching for the os9 driver of the Evolution e-key 37

"The eKeys Keyboard is a lightweight USB keyboard with 37 mini keys that will fit into any computer setup because of its compact design. Installation couldn't be easier. Simply plug the attached USB cable into any available USB port on your computer, and the Class Compliant keyboard will automatically install under Windows XP or Mac OS X (drivers included for Windows 95/98/ME/2000 and Apple Mac OS 9.1 or later). Once installation is complete, the Evolution eKeys Keyboard is ready to use with the included software or any standard music package. "

i tryed google for long time without results .

This was a lot of searching for what is essentially (see what I did there?) a toy keyboard.
The OS9 drivers go back to when the company was called Essential - before acquisition by M-Audio. That's why they're so damn hard to find. M-Audio left the reference to OS9 (and Windoze 2000 for that matter) in the lit but never actually made the drivers available.

These are two .sit files of old Essential/M-Audio drivers for otherwise USB class-compliant keyboards. Hopefully, somewhere in there is one that will work. I know nothing about them at all, so don't ask - they're probably identical for all I know - they ARE the exact same size…

Are there any difference of these M-Audio drivers and the ones on M-Audios site? Cause it appears under "legacy" in the driver/support download section you have drivers that are really really old?

nicely done but the evolution company was never called "essential"
Well, ex-cuuuuse me!
I got carried away with my own cleverness and substituted the name of the keyboard for the name of the company.

basically what happened was that the the ownership of m-audio was transferred for the like the umpeenth time and the new webdesigners hired by the new owners went and totally screwed up the way the driver downloader worked
changing its operation from intelligent to completely unintelligent..

the 3rd column options used to actually intelligently show only those os versions that were supported for a particular device/driver.. now, no matter what driver you are after driver wise, the same "complete" list of os show on the right column forcing people to waste their time pressing "show result" and having to "go back" and try a different option untill they find a result.. the webdesigners who did this must be extremely brain dead to ruin such a beautifully simple elegant solution that was online from like 2002 forward for over 10 years
