Hi Chris,

	I have a setup very similar to yours. So far, I haven't been 
able to record anything with the 828 in OS X. Every application I 
have (including Sound Studio) crashed when I try to select the 828 as 
the input source. Also, Sound Studio doesn't list the 828 as an 
output device. On the other hand, I can play out OK- I've used 
Doggiebox and iTunes just fine.

I hope there's a fix for Sound Studio, because it's my most-used 
program at the moment (I'm archiving a lot of tapes and vinyl).
