    Yes I think it will. It uses LibUSB and JACK (an audio device interconnect library). You "should" be able to take the code out of the interface code that interfaces LibUSB to JACK and use that.

    See here: http://macpod.net/electronics/lasershark/lasershark.php

    cfavreau, it sounds too complex for me

    PS: which DACs are most popular for laser projectors? I plan to add support for theirs in the first place.

    - Pangolin QM2000 (Drlava's library supports this one, pangolin has an SDK for that too but I believe it requires you to own a QM2000 to obtain it)
    - Moncha + moncha.net(not sure if it is supported by drlava's library)
    - Easylase (not sure about the popularity of this one).

    Basicly if you implement drlava's SDK you automatically be able to use an array of controllers.

    IIRC, drlava's library supports Moncha and Fiesta.
    Easylase used to be popular (I have one), so if you can please add support!
    Recently, the Etherdream became the preferred choice for hobbyists due to its price (a bit cheaper than an Easylase) and ethernet capabilities. The SDK is open so it shouldn't be too hard to add support.

    You can also look at hints of code in LFI Player if you can find the source code ... it has code for Easy Laser and QM2000 and a few others.

    dream, I plan to make "lite" version of my software free but not open source. Other versions will be paid. So I will not publish my sources.

    This looks like a quite nice piece of software, you should contact drlava, but I believe that the current view on using OSS software from within a closed source piece of software is that so long as you do not incorporate drlava's code into your program, but rather link the .dll he provides it is allowed, and would allow you to support many more dacs (etherdream, etc).

    That said, I will continue using LFI player and LaserBoy until someone does release a better OSS player (the new openlase stuff is getting to be quite impressive in the mean time!).

    Does your program feature a FB3 controller and can work with two lasers?
