mh's EigenStudio® application can fail to work properly under OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) when using audio devices with no inputs (e.g. Built-in Output on a MacBook Pro). Two possible work arounds are suggested: a) select an audio device that has outputs AND inputs or b) create an aggregate device by combining the output-only device with a device that provides inputs (e.g. Built-in Microphone).
This is the release of the em32setGain application version 1.5.1 for OS X and Windows. It provides new features and improvements over the previous release. See the Readme file for more information.

Version 18 of the Eigenmike® Release Notes
A few sample recordings made with the em32 Eigenmike® microphone array :
• Spring Peepers (frogs) recorded on a spring evening in Vermont
• 17-year Magicicada Periodical Cicadas recorded in mid June 2013 in NJ (around 80dBA!)
• American football game with the Eigenmike® array in the first row at the 50-year line raised about 5 meters over the field
• mh team member playing guitar in a living room at about 1 m from the guitar
The two main improvements over the previous versions are: a) support for high resolution displays, and b) more robust communication between the app and the hardware which results in a faster response time for the PGA control.
The zip file is not bundled with the driver for the Eigenmike® hardware. In case you have not previously obtained the audio driver for OS X please download the version 2.0.10 zip file (in older news) and extract the driver from there.
With the release of the Mac OS X version of EigenStudio® and em32setGain applications we also updated the Windows version to 2.0.10. This update includes some new features, bug fixes and general improvements to both programs. It is recommended for all users to upgrade to this release.
