#1 skipping sound Edit

Rui Sousa
playback (26)

when i play sound files the sound skips a few
milliseconds very often. it's pretty anoying actually
since i put a lot of time into making my soundfiles
sound as good as possible.
i hope this will get high priority because otherwise i
think it's a great driver.

    Kernel version, driver version?
    What others programs are running on the system?
    Is this playback only?

    I use kernel 2.4.17 and the audigy driver 2002-01-25 on my
    SB Live 5.1..

    I found out what was causing the skips actually since they
    disappeared when i turned of the sequencer... now the sound
    only skips like once every 30th second or so and it's such a
    small skip that you can hardly even hear it...

    Same here. From time to time it skips.
    It skips more with artsd and fewer when using

    Kernel versions stock 2.4.17 and 2.4.18-pre8-mjc both
    have same problems. Debian Woody.

    Also, sometimes I hear some clicks (or rather its a
    creeping noise longing some fraction of a sec).

    Driver version is whatever is in kernel.

    Oh yes and those skips and clicks appear also when
    almost nothing is running on the computer (single user mode)
    with splay.

    What do you do to shut off the sequencer? I am running
    linux 2.4.17 and the new 2/14/02 Audigy driver. Thanks

    My bet would be that you have the ESD sound daemon running,
    or the KDE sound server running, try disabling them and see
    if you still have those problems. I find that these programs
    often cause this problem. Also try the latest driver (may).
