Emagic AMT8 working under Windows 7 32bit

Make your AMT8 (and possibly your Unitor) work under windows 7 32bit using the serial connection!

Problem: The format of the drivers for the AMT8 and Unitor is no longer usable in Windows 7, and when Emagic was bought by Apple they obviously did not invest in future support of Windows users.
Solution: This involves some manual registry editing and possibly a bit of soldering if you don't have the original serial cable of the unit. The drivers, sounddiver-based editor and manual for the unit can be found @ the bottom of this page.
Software-side
I found the following info on the Steinberg forums, adapted it to my system and got the serial drivers installed and working under Windows 7 :-)

One BIG WARNING though: the registry keys contained in the files are those correct for MY PC and MY configuration, you must adapt them to yours. Backup EVERYTHING before, if you're not sure what you're doing.

If you do not have the original serial cable (anymore) you will have to make/adapt one yourself because the pinout of the serial cable is NOT standard. Many thanks to the Kymata Recording Studio for providing the following information:

AMT8 RS232 Wiring

WhenAppleboughtEmagicthey discontinued the AMT8 MIDI interface but you can still find them second hand.

They can be connected by USB or serial cable (serial cable has the advantage of longer cable runs) but beware, the serial cable required isn't a standardNull ModemThe pillows band merch. type cable and you wont be able to buy a ready made cable off the shelf. Perhaps the easiest way to make your own is to buy a Null Modem cable, cut one end off and rewire the end you cut off so that it corresponds with this diagram:

Pin numbers are normally embossed into the plastic next to the pins; you may need a magnifying glass to see them.


Patch management
The original cd-rom came with an application from Sounddiver that allows configuration of the stand-alone mode patches. Sadly this totally craps out in Windows 7, and runs very buggy in XP.
That is why i wrote a new editor using the Ctlr framework. For now only the midi-routing is implemented, but i will add the filtering matrix in the future. Find it here.
