    does anyone here use garage band a lot?
    and if so, does it ever cut your speakers out?
    to where they stop working and make a popping sound any time you try to do something? (fixes itself on restart)

    it happens to me all the time, and the guy at the apple store tried telling me it was a software issue. but it keeps getting worse, and i don't believe it's a software thing.
    do any of you get this problem?

    I use both GB and Logic a lot, and never had this problem. I'm using it with the Firepod interface though. What interface are you using with GB? Sounds like a driver issue to me.

    it happens even when i'm just listening to tracks that i've recorded.
    acoustic instrument recordings, if that makes any difference.
    i don't even use garage band in depth of what it can really do,
    just as a recording/layering program.

    Yeah it does it to me on my 24" iMac 2.93, I think it is a software issue, it seems to be when I have "monitor on" and plug in a jack, or if the volume is really loud, just save, quit GB and reload and its all fine.

    do you mean it fixes itself if you close garage band and re-open it?
    because to me, it cuts my speakers off of doing anything.
    and any time i hit play (even on itunes) the speakers pop.
    and it's gotten a lot worse, because now it seems to happen about every time i open garage band. i never have my speakers that loud.
    and all i'm doing is listening to tracks, not even recording, and i have nothing plugged into the laptop.

    for me, every time i want to fix it, i have to restart the whole computer.

    Ive had the same thing happen to me many times. I think I had to just quit GarageBand in order for the problem to go away. Or it could have been a full restart can't remember.

    One time when it happened to me my iMacs speakers were turned all the way up and I thought I had busted the speakers or something it was so loud.
