I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here but, here's what I'm trying to do. Basically my app has it's own music and sound effects but, what I'd like to do, is allow those who want to play their own music to still be able to. So basically they can turn off the music in my app and play their own, or play my music and not their own, or play neither. Sound effects have a separate control in the app. Now, here's the thing. I'm testing my app to make sure that it will allow their own music to play but every time the app launches, the iPod fades out. I've even tested by bypassing all the SoundEngine stuff I'm doing, so none of that's initialized or run, but the same thing happens. Is there a trick to getting your app to run whilst listening to your own music? Bit perplexed on this one! Any help appreciated.
