I recently buyed a sound card USB M-Audio Fast Track (the last one) and plugged it in my macbook late 2009 running OSX Mountain Lion.
Everything seems to be ok (sound works fine, but i prefer sound from my embedded sound card from the macbook, it doesn't clip like the fast track that i find a bit sensible) but i've installed "drivers" that was on the CD with the package of the sound card.
So my question is: what is this F****** driver ? what is installed on my mac ? i don't want ASIO or other driver , i just want my coreAudio and i can't see what was installed except a button in system pref that allow me to select 13 or 24 bit.
Do you think installer has installed ASIO drivers on my mac ? or just the control pannel for the bit level ?
i should never put this CD in my mac ... can you help me ?
.kext is a kernel extension file it may be needed for some versions of os x or could be needed to do the 16/24 bit switch.
The fast track is class compliant so drivers really aren't needed as you found out.
