View Full Version : Sound stuck on my Mac

Apr 15, 2008, 11:23 PM
sorry if this thread already exist but i don't had the time to find it out and i'm not in the mood.

I got a seriously problem with my sound on my Macbook Pro.
When i open a software (Traktor Dj Studio, or Ableton Live 7) what i use to play and make music my sound 'stuck' and sounds very ugly.

I already reboot my mac and installed everything all over again and i hope everything will be fine again but its not.

I still have the same problem.
All my software is original i installed everything clearly and i tried with 2 different soundcards (Ozone interface and Audio 8 ) but still sound stuck

Is it a hardware problem or software i dont know what to do to fix it.

sorry my english is not so great who can help me out of it ?

thank you so much

By the sound being stuck do you mean the volume gets stuck so that it can not be changed?

If thats the case then try deleting or moving the preference files for the programs that cause the problem. I recommend moving the current files to the desktop or some other place so you can place them back in their original places if this does not work.

The preferences should probably be in user/Library/Preferences and should look similar to "com.abelton.live.plist" or something of the sort.

This used to happen randomly for me with Max/MSP, and trashing/moving the prefs for the program worked for it.

the volume is good everything works, but when i play something with this programs (traktor or ableton) the sound stuck and sounds crispy like a streaming that is not buffered enough or a damaged speaker.

and also by ableton my CPU stands on '4' when nothing is going on, maby it is a problem with the cpu options.

Only with music software it does this strange thing. Because everything else works perfect.
