Mac peripheral maker Griffin Technology has released
a firmware updater for the iMic — a microphone designed to work with USB-equipped Macs. The new update is ready for download from Griffin’s Web site.
Griffin said that the new firmware update incorporates important feature enhancements and bug fixes for the iMic. It enables the iMic to be used with unpowered hubs (such as the USB connector on Apple keyboards, for example). It also modifies the Sound control panel, and provides other various bug fixes.
Also released today is the final release version of the iMic Control utility. MacCentral recently brought readers news of this software’s beta release — the utility provides bass, treble and gain control for iMic users.
The 1.0 version of the iMic Control utility sports bug fixes that improve reliability. New features to the software include the ability to retain settings for the iMic if it’s unplugged and re-plugged, mute and bass boost text is clickable, and more. The new utility update is also available at the link above.
Griffin’s also been hard at work on
a new driver for its USB to ADB adapter, the iMate. The new 2.61 release corrects a wake from sleep bug that affected some custom ADB drivers, and also corrects a problem that could cause the CD tray to eject on startup.
