Greg Crain recently posted over at the bedrivertalk mailing list and the Bedrivers.com forum about his work on the ESS Maestro3 /Allegro sound driver. Here’s what he posted in the bedrivertalk mailing list:

Hi all,

I finally got around to tweaking the Maestro3 driver code, and it seems
to be working. I have a pretty limited test platform though on my Dell
8000 with Zeta Neo, so if you have a laptop with a ESS chip (Maestro3 or
Allegro) I
would be interested to know if it works for you.

I made a post over at the BeDrivers website in the sound drivers forum
with a bit more info.

More info over at his post in the BeDrivers forums here

PLEASE NOTE this is an Initial debug release, so it could cause unpredictable problems and could cause your computer to go into KDL. Currently it only supports sound output.

So if you have a system that uses the ESS Maestro 3/Allegro chipset and have taken note of the caution mentioned above, then download and test the driver and be sure to report your results to Greg. You can find his contact info in the README file.

Chris from HaikuNews got in touch with Greg and wrote a more detailed article about the sound driver developement. For more info regarding the driver, read the article over at HaikuNews here.
