VoodooHDA is an open source audio driver for devices compliant with the Intel High Definition Audio (HDA) specification, based primarily on code from the FreeBSD hdac driver. It is intended as an Intel-only replacement for AppleHDA on Mac OS X with support for a wide range of audio controllers and codecs.

The installer package has been updated to include the new v2.7.3 kext as well as VoodooSettingsLoader to replace voodoohdahelper, so all settings in the prefpane will actually get saved and loaded. Thanks to Talagan for that.

The install script has also been modified to edit the Info.plist and add the need IOKitPersonality Instances with specific IOPrimaryMatch keys for those who have multiple HDA devices, like HDMI - so you shouldn't have to deal with kernel panics post-install.

Does this include "Realtek" devices? I know I'll never get my x-fi working.

It may do. What model of realtek do you have and what version are you running?

I don't know yet. Still saving for new hardware but the sound will deffo be realtek. I'm hoping to go mini itx on my next build so there will be no space for dedicated sound or gfx. PCIe slot will be used for tv/sat card.

Depending on what you get then let me know the device and vendor ID and I will make a kext for you.
