I wrote about this before but it's occured to me that perhaps I'm doing something wrong. I've used the same track as last time and it clips in exactly the same places (as it does in many other tracks which play perfectly fine on the iPod, iTunes 6 and on the PC in software other than iTunes 7) as 7.0. Volume is set full, Sampling rate in the Audio MIDI Setup is 44.1khz of course and the rest is how it is in the pic. Sorry about the 'smearing' - I used Unsharp Mask for the text to show up better while resizing the image to be smaller. Is there anything I'm missing in terms of the audio setup? Only analog outputs 1 & 2 are active on this soundcard and they're set up as left/right in Audio MIDI Setup. It's definitely clipping at the source - I can adjust the volume of the outputs and it just clips quieter. Unless I switch on the Equalizer and pull the preamp down a notch, iTunes won't play without clipping to the analog outputs nor the headphones. I don't think I got any replies when I posted this last, isn't anyone else out there experiencing digital clipping in iTunes 7?
