Sound Problem

Recommended Posts

Guest Lucysjohn

Hi, I have only just started using FS and downloaded PMDG 747-400. I have noticed that when using it i get a sound problem - a crackling interferance - even when i move the joystick controls . Is there a fix for this , and does anyone else experience this problem ?.

I get this too. It may be part of the sound fixes they have coming up in the update here shortly. If you turn some of the sounds down in the PMDG options menu, it may help a little bit. It helped my sounds out a bit. Scott Burke

I get this too, with both my sound cards! Hopefully PMDG may fix it someday (in mean time I am using a great freeware soundset), although I'd really love to be able to use PMDG's soundset!

I have this issue too. I have updated my sound drivers too.Surely all of us cant have faulty sound cards.My sound card has never given me any issues with other addons.

Hi , I have just up-dated my sound card driver ( Audigy 4 Pro ) . I ran FS with my PMDG 747 , but the "crackling noise" is still there . I have turned down my sounds in the "options " but its still as bad .

It is a pain. I get it mostly in the spot view and when moving the view around with the hat on my ch pro usb yoke. I've updated my system to the latest drivers for sound and video. In fact I just got a new video card the other day and did a complete OS re-install and still the same deal. Only happens on the Queen, my 737NG, B1900C and level-d 767 are fine with NO problems at all. I get crackling sounds only on the Queen.Here are some of my system specs:Audio: Using a Asus P4P800S motherboard with a 3.0Gig P4 CPU with SoundMax integrated audio. I got the latest driver that asus has from there web site. v.5.12.1.3665 (8/29/2003) I can't seem to find anything newer then that.Video: ATI All in Wonder X800XL using latest Catalyst.CH Products USB Yoke and Pro Pedals USB.If there is a driver you can point me to I'd gladly try it out and see if it works. But I find it strange that the NG and other addons don't experience this.Regards,Jeff

I have this problem too. I have a Creative soundblaster live 5.1 with update drivers. the cracking is very subtle and it only happens with certain soundsets, especially the 747.If i take the card out and revert to onboard sound, there is no crackle, so it may be creative or whoever's fault.

I also have an Asus P4P800 motherboard with SoundMax integrated audio and the latest drivers from their web site v5.12.1.3665

It seems this sound problem ( crackling) is either caused with Ati sound cards or maybe Asus motherboards . Do any 747-400 users have Ati cards and they have no sound issues ?:-hmmm

I have this problem, Audigy 4 Pro, and an Epox motherboard. I have the latest drivers, the only thing that has seemed to fix it, but not sure if the quality goes down, is in dxdiag I changed sound acceleration to basic.
