I have a device (Lynx) which can take audio from 8 mice and saves the files into my machine using graph edit. In windows they provide driver and I can access mice and can save files. I want to do the same on a Mac. Here how I will access this device. I don't have a driver. Its a PCI card.

Can anyone provide some valuable help Thanks in advance

@sijith - do you mean one of these products - lynxstudio.com/product_section.asp?i=2? In which case, I think perhaps you mean "mics" as an abbreviation of microphones, rather than "mice" (which, in English, is the plural of mouse) –  Ed Harper Mar 4 '10 at 8:15
yes sir.... This link only... My card is lynx AES16. I want to use this card with MAC –  Anonymous Mar 4 '10 at 8:35

1 Answer 1

Download the drivers from www.lynxstudio.com and the card should just show up in CoreAudio in the same way as the built-in Mac audio devices. There is sample code at developer.apple.com for recording audio via CoreAudio.
