Fedora :: Sound Crackling & Popping With F12

Feb 13, 2010

I have a Creative Labs SB X-Fi sound card and I am getting a lot of crackling & popping with it. Plus I have to kill and restart pulseaudio a lot. Does anyone know of anything that can be done to help this out? I have the latest F12 kernel and rpms installed.

Fedora :: F12 Crackling Sound / Stop It?

Nov 19, 2009

I've tried some workarounds like adding an audio entry in the registry but it did not work. I think that the problem is related with the pulseaudio driver...

Fedora :: F11 Sound Crackling In Media Players / Solve This?

Sep 14, 2009

When I installed fedora 11 I had bad sound which crackled and crashed. I followed this guide -http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=225660 - which fixed my issues in videos playing on the web and in VLC. However; in the last few days sound has bugun crackling again in VLC while playing videos (web is fine). All updates have been applied and I am running 32 bit Fedora 11.

Also totem when playing video crashes, freezes, crackles etc while playing videos though playing sound files is fine with no issues. Any ideas how I might solve this and get my sound while playing videos back to how it used to be?

Ubuntu :: How To Fix Popping Sound In 11.04 Natty

Jun 22, 2011

Since I installed Natty recently, I had this "popping" sound from the speakers when the laptop was running on battery. Turns out this popping has to do with a power-saving feature for "hda-intel" sound-chips.

Open terminal and do:
gksudo gedit /usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/intel-audio-powersave
Find this line:

And comment it out by putting a "#" in front of it like this:

Just below this line you make a new line, like this:

So now you will have:
Save the file (File > Save) and exit.
Reboot the computer.
The popping sound will be gone.

If you for some reason need to undo the setting, just open the file again and remove the "#" from:

And delete this line:
Save the file.

Ubuntu :: Crackling Sound On Skype 2.1 / Fix It?

May 4, 2010

I have installed Skype beta 2.1 on my ubuntu 9.04, everything works except the mic. All I get is noise (SSSHHHHH) when i try to use it. moreover Looking in volume control, no matter what volume I have the mic set to initially, as soon as I initiate a call the mic volume goes all the way to zero (then initiating that crackling staticky bug) and turning it back up doesn't work as the volume slider just slides back down. and also one of the mic channels (left or right, I can't remember) comes to zero and slowly the other follows it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Popping And Distorted Sound On 10.04?

Jul 6, 2010

I did a clean install to 10.04. Not too many issues except any sound I play sounds like it's underwater and pops while playing. I have tried to do the Pulse Audio install, but every time I loaded pauvcontrol (I think was the title), it would pop up "Connection Failure: Connection Refused." I tried to follow other guides, but they'd all fail because I'd be missing half of the files it changed. I have a Creative Labs X-Fi Fatality card that has given me troubles in the past, but usually, it works. I tried to install Creative's open driver, but again, I had an error when I attempted to Make the directory.

Debian Hardware :: Crackling Sound On Jessie

Sep 19, 2015

So whenever I start-up and after I enter my passphrase for cryptsetup (before login manager) I hear this crackling sound from my speakers constantly throughout usage.

While watching a movies or playing Youtube videos it's less noticeable, but when I'm typing up or working it really gets frustrating.

I've tried to figure out if pulseaudio was the culprit. uninstalled and rebooted yet crackling and pops continued. I haven't yet altered or messed around with ALSA or snd_hda_intel driver. But I did notice while using Audio Mixer, muting the speakers section stopped the crackling ...

So I guess the problem lies with Alsa or snd_hda_intel or both?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Crackling Sound After Upgrading To 10.04?

Jun 4, 2010

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 from 9.10 and there's now a strange high-pitched crackling distortion sound whenever I play any kind of sound with any program, which seems to stop and start at random. My sound card is an SiS SI7012, and the sound was working perfectly before I upgraded.I'm not sure whether this is a problem with Pulseaudio or ALSA or what. I tried removing all of the Pulseaudio packages, but that didn't help, and I also tried doing 'remove completely' on all of the Pulseaudio and ALSA packages and then reinstalling, but that didn't work either

Ubuntu :: Random Crackling Sound / Narrow It Down?

Oct 10, 2010

I use a Creative Fata1ity USB Headset for playing games. I use a VOIP Client called Mangler for ventrilo. I play WoW via WINE.

I am not sure what is causing it, but the sound quality will be amazing and then randomly go to this crackling, static, ping, underwater sound for people in Mangler and for the WoW sound.

What I do is go system > preferences > sound and then turn the sound to off and then back to my setting and it is fixed. It will then come back randomly. It could be 5 minutes or an hour.

Anyone have any clue what this could be or how to narrow it down. Makes raiding kind of hard when I have to fix my sound randomly while healing a boss fight.

It did this on 10.04 and then on 10.10

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded To 9.10, Crackling Sound?

Nov 11, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 (9.04 support just ran out). Ideally, I'd upgrade further to 10.04 or 10.10, but I am somewhat bandwidth limited, and so the additional 1.5GB upgrade to 10.04 is a last resort. After upgrading, I picked up a nice crackling sound. It seems to be tied to activity. Typing up this post resulted in a few crackling sounds a minute, but scrolling up or down, resizing windows, or doing anything more intensive (such as listening to music), and the frequency picks up.

lspci lists two audio devices: 00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc HD48x0 audio Though I believe the second one is for a port on my video card, and thus the first one seems to be the one actually in use. If it matters at all, I'm running 64-bit, and am currently dual booting with Arch Linux (which has its own audio issues, and I was putting off tracking down because Ubuntu worked fine).

SUSE :: Loud Popping Sound When On Battery Power Only

Mar 10, 2010

Loud popping sound approx. 11 secs after switching to battery power if audio hasnt been used for awhile (11 secs probably?) It will pop when audio is started (like movie, alert etc etc). It appears to be a power saving problem. And is not occurring for me on other distros, and only started happening recently on OpenSuSE. I found the exact same problem on the OpenSuSE forums dated 2008 (see: [URL]) but no solution as of yet. And by loud popping sound imagine one of those 'black cat' snappers you throw on the ground and they pop, it sounds almost identical.

Debian Multimedia :: Constant Crackling Sound After Upgraded To 8.1

Aug 31, 2015

I have upgraded (twice) to 8.1 and I get constant crackling sound - interestingly only from my left speaker. It starts already after the GRUB boot, and when logged in it just cracks all the time.

- in Wheezy there is no this kind of problem
- I have installed Jessie (crackling), fresh install back to Wheezy (no problem), fresh install again Jessie (problem), back to Wheezy (no problem), and now Jessie (again problem).
- the volume slide is jumping like crazy together with crackling. There is no chance to manually change it.

I have managed (by some unknown chance) to set profile to off, and now it disappeared. However, it comes back ON when rebooted.

Ubuntu :: Continuous Crackling Sound From Speakers/headset?

Apr 21, 2010

I've got some sort of problem with my sound configurations (I think). There's this crackling/disturbance (with an ocational beeping sound) coming from my headset whenever I insert a headset or speaker. Turning the sound off doesn't make it stop either.I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on a Acer Veriton 3600GT (some years old). Please note that I'm not all that familiar with Linux yet...Typing aplay -l in Terminal returned the following:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Sound Crackling / Resolve This?

Apr 30, 2011

I've been trying to configure my revo R3700 over the last day and I'm finally there. HDMI sound is working apart from the fact that all sound is crackling. Sound is working through analogue without issue its just HDMI that is distorted

I initially did the command

aplay -Dplughw:1,7 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav

Which produced no crackling or distortion. I then tried a mp3 which was distorted and crackling, upon trying the same command as above later on, this too started to be distorted

Searched through the forum and theres a few people that have had this issue and have resolved it simply by edited alsamixer however this isn't working.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Crackling Sound In 11.04, Already Searched For Solutions?

May 15, 2011

I've been through what I could find in searches here, but nothing fixed the problem so far.Here's the situation: I am using Ubuntu Natty 11.04, dual booting. So I know the sound is fine on the XP system, and also works crisp and clear on my Vista laptop sitting next to me. I've tried the sound through Banshee, Amarok and Exaile all with the same crackling as if the file was ripped off a bad CD. I'll repeat that I've tested the speakers, and also the jack port (being that there are two on my PC) so I am fairly certain it is an issue with Ubuntu. Here is the ALSA information report: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=ad...8b8d1ee19905a5

It's not a problem with PCM- the crackling will go away if the level on PCM is like 30~ but then the sound is very quiet even with Master and speaker volume at 100, at which point you can still make out the crackling.

Slackware :: Getting Crackling And Intermittent Sound With Realtek ALC889 / Fix It?

Jan 19, 2010

I've had a snap, crackle, pop coming from my speakers since I put this machine together, even now, with no reason for any sound to be coming from the speakers. Additionally, the crackling only becomes worse when I play ANY audio regardless of player or source, however the sound does just drop for a few seconds and then back and then off again when there is SUPPOSED to be audio. I understand not working at all, but "kinda" working is more confusing.

I'm running slack64 with the with an updated kernel from current, even though the rest of the machine is stock 13_64. The problem was the same with the original kernel.

Debian Hardware :: Wheezy Stable 7.5 - Crackling Microphone Sound

May 21, 2014

My microphone in skype is crackling on Debian Wheezy stable 7.5 ... It is OK on Windows so it is obviously not the hardware to blame.

I have tried already all the options I could find regarding this on the internet, by changing in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf:

Code: Select all resample-method = speex-float-10
Code: Select all resample-method = speex-float-1

My output was also crackling but I solved it by changing:

in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf:
Code: Select all default-sample-rate = 48000
 flat-volumes = no
in /etc/pulse/default.pa:

Code: Select allload-module module-udev-detect tsched=0

I also tried starting skype with

Code: Select all PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30 skype

Without any success. Now the output is perfect, but the microphone in skype (haven't tested it elsewhere) is crackling.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Is Intermittently Scratchy Or Crackling During Games?

Apr 13, 2010

It seems like it's mostly an issue with playing games. When I play certain 3D games, the audio may work for a little while, but will start getting scratching or full of static. Some times it's a lot, and other times it's just a little bit. Most times, the sound in the game will stop working after a short moment of static/scratchy sound. Then I am left with complete silence.I've seen on other posts that PCM volume may be turned up all the way. I wasn't sure what PCM was, but in the volume controls, I saw that you could adjust each individual application's volume. I assumed that this was PCM, as the game's volume was all the way up.I turned it down some, and I still got some static in the sound, and the sound still disappeared completely after a short time.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Crackling Input Sound In Toshiba Satellite A210-139

Jun 16, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu Natty on my Toshiba Satellite A210-139. Everything works fine except the microphone. I can hear a crackling sound also when I record using Sound Recorder, but it's not too bad. The big issue is with skype, where, besides an annoying, loud white noise, the receiver hears me quite intermittently. I tried many things. Firstly, I played around with Alsamixer and Pulseaudio with every possible combination. Didn't work. I also tried what seemed to solve the problem to many users: replacing

load-module module-udev-detect
load-module module-udev-detect tsched=0
in /etc/pulse/default.pa

Fedora :: PulseAudio On F13 - Large Crackling Noise In Skype

Apr 25, 2011

I have had problems with pulseaudio since F13 so the problem is not new just that I have been working since 12 AM till now 6:30 AM trying to fix it and I have failed the only thing left from what I see is a complete reinstall. When I start skype it works for 5 secs then the sound becomes corrupt and make a large crackling noise. I have reinstalled alsa and pulse atleast 10 times removed any trace of config files and still the same result. It first broke when I turned off tsched in hopes that my microphone will no longer broadcast a buzzing sound. This setting broke everything and even after I reverted it the symptoms remained the same. It's 3rd time I reinstall fedora because of pulseaudio. Until the problem can be fixed I have reverted back to ALSA.

Ubuntu :: Get Rid Of The Keying Nonsense That Keeps Popping Up?

Jan 1, 2010

I'm starting to use SuperUbuntu, and am trying to set up Evolution email prog. This is on a USB stick. Anyone know how to get rid of the keyring nonsense that keeps popping up? Google searches reveal that others are highly annoyed too, but can't cure it easily. Is it easy to put Thunderbird on and remove Evolution? And before anyone starts to preach security to me - I don't want to hear it. No offence meant. All I'm looking for is a correction.

Ubuntu :: Launcher Bar Gets Stuck After Popping Out?

This is an annoying problem I've been having with Unity. I'll be moving the mouse around and sometimes hit the right or left mouse clicker and the launcher bar pops out and stays stuck out. I can't get it to auto hide unless the browser is closed. Then I have to reopen the browser and start all over again. What makes this very annoying is there may be several tabs open in the browser that have to be all reloaded again.How do you get the launcher bar to auto hide again after it is stuck popped out?

CentOS 5 :: Firefox Popping Window Instead Of Tab / Fix It?

Apr 23, 2009

I loaded CentOS from a USB net install as I am trying to get an eeeBox to run CentOS 5.3 as a low power usage firewall. As you might know this box doesn't have an optical drive so everything has to be loaded from something USB. After the net install I ran a yum update and then went to some websites that I use and Firefox would pop a small window which looked like a vertical blue bar with a white dot at the bottom. I could grab it with the mouse and expand it and it would open as a normal window but inside there would be nothing. Usually in other CentOS installations Firefox would put the new window in another tab. When I go to the Edit/Preferences area and click on the tab icon nothing appears on the page...only the mail and security icons work. I unloaded Firefox using yum remove and reloaded it using yum install and now when I start Firefox it pops three windows and every site I go to pops another window with nothing in it. Am I losing my mind, or is there something wrong with my hardware, or is this a bug?
