Editor’s Note: I currently use the DVS on a Mac Pro 8-core, running Logic, connected to my Yamaha 02R96v2. I will be posting a review of the product along with the Dante soundcard for Yamaha mixers, here on MuseWire, very soon. The DVS does work with Snow Leopard OSX and Logic 9. — Christopher Simmons.
