    Any idea why I stall at registerNotificationPort entered?
    I have installed macOS, went through, rebooted, got through the setup (I believe), and went to boot into macOS which I haven't made it that far yet and it stalls at this point.
    Alienware 17 R4, 7820HQ/i7, 32 GB of DDR4, only using HD630 intel internal graphics due to nvidia 1080 in the laptop.
    It is a samsung 970 Evo plus, firmware has been updated.

    Hi @RockJesus, I noticed that you’d made a pull request recently for the AppleALC kext, and it seems that you have knowledge on the parameters for DSP processing:

    I’ve got experience in audio production (I’m a heavy Logic user), however, I don’t understand how the data structure works in the layout(#).xml file.

    I would imagine that the DSP parameters in Logic Pro are similar to those found in AppleHDA, and I was wondering if you can please explain how the formatting works, or where I can read up on this? I specifically want to apply equalization, and would imagine that there's multiple types of equalization available.

    @TechProgenitor

    I did some reverse engineering and found out what the parameters mean for the equalization:

    2 - Channel Select
    3 - Band Index
    4 - Bypass Band
    5 - Filter Type
    6 - Frequency
    7 - Q
    8 - Gain

    However I’m used to working in decibels/hertz/etc, and was wondering how the values work for each of these parameters?

    Otherwise, is there a way to literally grab this data that I did for a speaker equalization template that I created in Logic Pro?
    maybe this helps

    Anyone know why I can get the installer to boot but don't see any of my SSD's only the flash drive I boot with?
    internal or external drives

    @TechProgenitor
    Try adding NvmExpressDxe.efi and HfsPlus.efi to your drivers folder if you haven't already.
    TechProgenitor
    @TechProgenitor

    The PinConfigurator app will be very useful in my arsenal for the future, but it doesn’t appear to have DSP functionality (unless I’m wrong).

    If I can’t make my EQ settings work natively in AppleHDA, then I’ll just use Boom.
    I did a writeup on InsanelyMac as well if you’re interested:
    https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/350193-cannot-find-any-information-on-applehdas-eq-parameters/

    I think I’ve got a pretty solid idea of what the first four parameter values are.
    The last three, however, I don’t have a clue yet.

    drivel2787
    @drivel2787
    I tried to add in nvmExpressDxe.efi and I already had HfsPlus.efi.... No difference
    No internal SSD shows up and only the USB I boot from shows up
    No other USB's which I have 2 different USBs one with opencore and one with clover ,same reaction, no nvme shows once I get to the install screen. It boots to that fine.
    drivel2787
    @drivel2787
    Yeah, no matter what kext, same thing, USB won't see internal drives, I had this working before no CLUE, what's different. With .efi or nvmefix, do I need to put any kind of patches in acpi, kernel, etc...?
    drivel2787
    @drivel2787
    No idea but finally got opencore to boot enough to re-install and now same thing can't boot into MACOS to finish installer LOL. Going to try a few things, followed the online guide, haven't got a stable install yet.

    Hello @RockJesus !
    I've seen that you've created a PR on AppleALC with new codec info, do you mind sharing the process of creating support for a new codec (or existing codec but different layout)?
    TechProgenitor
    @TechProgenitor

    Hi @danideicide2_twitter I'm currently working on a layout id myself, and am trying to work out an annoying bug as well as add some DSP processing.
    Creating a layout ID is a somewhat tedious process, and you hopefully you won't have the problem that I'm facing which is getting a very specific verb command to run at startup in order to eliminate headphone distortion.

    I used this guide to create a new layout ID for my codec:
    https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/1946-complete-applehda-patching-guide/

    Note that for the first part (the verb data), that goes into the info.plist file within PinConfigs.kext.

    In order to test your modified version of AppleALC, duplicate your modified repo to another location, and use this method to build the kext (this is me asking for help in order to do this).
    https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/349975-cannot-compile-applealc-from-source-code/

    (As a bonus tip in order to make your build time faster (for testing purposes), delete all of the folders within the resources folder and data from the info.plist file within PinConfigs.kext that aren't for your codec.)

    Super! Thank you very much @TechProgenitor !
    I really appreciate your help!

    Hi @danideicide2_twitter
    I don't know how far you've gotten with your AppleALC patch, but I unraveled the parameters for the EQ plugin if you're interested once you get the nodes hooked up properly:
