You can even put two of them in one Mac, and you also can have
it with Yamaha SW1000-XG card and ADAT-option so it can need one or four slots.

It doesn't have MIDI like Yamaha SW1000-XG, so you cannot control it with MIDI. So if somebody have any programming
information for DS2416 then I am really interested in to make little program that you can control the driver with MIDI.

It has 20-bit A/D and D/A, 24-bit SPDIF I/O and 32-bit internal effects and mixing, 56-bit EQ calculation and you can even record and play in 32-bit those internally processes, if your software support 32-bit recording.

Last ASIO driver for Mac OS 9.2.2, you find here:
http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/global/en/downloads/firmware_software/dspfactory/
Inside package there is 32-bit driver and 16-bit driver for some older 16-bit only apps.
Card should work with every Mac with PCI-slot that can boot to Mac OS 9, maybe older drivers with older macs too.

I bought my first new Mac when OS X 10.1 released. And I bought that Mac because it had Mac OS 9 too. And I bought my first 68k Mac when Apple stopped PPC Macs.

iirc there was a special Logic version supporting this card, basically one of Yamaha's mixers on a PCI card (without the analog control elements of course)
I was interested for a short while, but choose a Creamware Scope card instead.
Best buy ever, still in daily use for > 15 years.

Considering current prices for Digidesign TDM gear I wouldn't bother too much, but back in the days it was useful for shure. No cheapo either...

Actually remember that somewhere was information about older drivers that works Mac OS 8.6 and System 7.6. So I think it works all PCI-slot PPC Macs (not G5). I have tested only with Mac OS 9.2.2 with G4 and I don't have those old drivers.
