It might have something to do with where you got hte songs or what format they are in etc. Its prob not directly related to itunes.fasteddie12 said:I just got my Macbook Pro yesterday and am having the same problems noted here. I don't even have any "heavy" application installed yet. This is happening on a good amount but not all of my music library. I opened iStat on Dashboard and waited for a skip; processor usage goes from a fairly constant, low amount to around 25% right after the skip and then returns back to normal.
What could be causing this?
fasteddie12 said:I have been listening to a huge variety of songs, including some I just ripped from a brand new CD in LAME. It happens on many and then when I seek back to play the section over it does not happen. Quicktime worked flawlessly when I tried it. Could it be the new iTunes update?

Had a strange problem, possibly from some of many 3rd party applications interacting negatively. Creating another "user" got rid of the problem, and allowed me to get what I wanted to done, instead of having to trouble shoot the problem first. Then added only a few neccessary 3rd applications to the new user.mad jew said:fasteddie12, try opening a new user account and seeing if the problem carries through. If the new account is fine then go back to the original and drag com.apple.iTunes.plist and com.apple.iTunes.eq.plist to the Desktop with iTunes closed (they'll be in your Preferences folder). Reopen iTunes and hear how it goes. This will put all your customised iTunes settings back to their defaults.
did it fix it then? though it's a shame to throw away harmonic as the widget is coolfasteddie12 said:THANK YOU, I have Harmonic that must have been causing it...
