CoreAudio2ASIO Patch for Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)

Audio playback/recording with USB audio class compliant audio interfaces (no separate driver installation is necessary) will create noise. Immediately after starting the host application any audio output delivers noise, even if nothing is played back. This patch addresses the issue.

Important: The Grand 3.1.0 must be installed prior to the patch installation! The CoreAudio2ASIO Patch is not needed for The Grand 3.1.1.
