    Every so often (few days), my soundsticks w/iSub decide not to play music...holding down the keyboard volume controls, you can hear noise coming out of the 'sticks that kinda sounds like a little tap but you don't get the actual volume alert tone (the clicky thing)...the only way to fix it seems to be a restart which id rather not do every day,..so yeah...is it fixable?

    I have this problem on my MIDI rig but never on my SOundSticks. See if you can locate and delete the Core Audio files in your Library (but not before you back them up!). This is supposed to fix a lot of problems with 10.24 and 10.25 audio.

    Umm... and without the core audio files, how does audio work?

    I have the same problem. I'm about to boot this whole computer in the trash.

    Dual 800 G4. I think I found a way not to reboot to make it work. GO to system preferences/sound, thn output tab. Click on built-in audio cotroller then back on sound sticks. It better then restarting.

    hmm I hope that one works..but I haven't experienced it for a few days now :p so hopefully the issue has just gone out the window.

    I *think* mine happened after playing MOHAA or something...after quitting, I don't *think* it worked...I emphasise the "think"'s.

    What computer do you have? What part of the computer are the sticks hooked up to?

    an iMac G3 600mhz w/ 640mb RAM. the sticks are hooked up to the USB port no.2 through the iSub. isn't that the only way?

    try using the sytem pref. idea.

    if that doesn't work. log-out, then log back in (this fixes many things...and frees up some RAM)

    restarting is aways a last resort. i only need to restart when software update requires it.

    ?


    peace.

    I had that problem with my soundsticks on my old powermac. Go tot the system prefs>sound and re-select the soundsticks. My old machine would occasionally want to switch back to the internal speaker.
