After a few hours playing I get a “ticking” sound at the same time as the played file (sounds like a bad ripped CD). If I change audiofile the “ticking” is stil on the played file.

If I restart my program the sound disapere. I got version 3.5.1.0 of Fmod.

Tips? I must get rid of the “ticking”.

I don´t know if it happens on fixed time, I let it play for 3-4 hours on a playlist then the “ticking” sound is there.

[b:2k8y1bub]I use (init):[/b:2k8y1bub]

FSOUND_SetOutput FSOUND_OUTPUT_DSOUND

FSOUND_SetDriver (DeviceID)

If FSOUND_Init 44100, 4, FSOUND_INIT_GLOBALFOCUS

[b:2k8y1bub]And for playing:[/b:2k8y1bub]

FSOUND_Stream_Stop stream1
If stream1 <> 0 Then FSOUND_Stream_Close stream1
stream1 = FSOUND_Stream_OpenFile(AudioFile, FSOUND_2D, 0)
FSOUND_SetVolume channel1, 255
channel1 = FSOUND_Stream_Play(FSOUND_FREE, stream1)
FSOUND_Stream_SetTime stream1, StartTime

I run on Win2000 (VB6)

I tested with “FSOUND_Stream_SetBufferSize 1500” I can play litle longer time but the “ticking” is still there after a few hours playing.

Are there som other things I can do? Brett please help me here.

MMhh i ve tested fmod more than 9h in continue with no pb …
It could be a driver problem so i advice you to upgrade your soundcard driver … otherwise i don’t see where the pb can be.

My playlist has different mp3 files. I use “getcurrent position” for knowing where i should start the next file (stream) so there is a overlap betwin songs.

I use “pro” soundcard (Teratech MT88, multichanel audio card) and that card on the same computer works great without problem with ex XAudio. I´m not intresed of reinitializing the fmod.

With XAudio I use DirectSound.

I upgraded drivers for soundcard and installed DirectX 8.1, still “ticking sound”.

But if I use FSOUND_OUTPUT_WINMM then it looks like it works, have played for 15h without problems. What do I loose (can´t do) with Fmod I a use FSOUND_OUTPUT_WINMM vs. FSOUND_OUTPUT_DSOUND
(on Windows 2000) ?

Brett what is the future plans for FMod? I like to see: MasterTempo (pitch), more FX like Flanger and BPM conter ?

I also use terratec soundcards (EWX 24/96 and a DMX 6 fire)
Both have almost the same driver, and only one (EWX) is getting the ticking 😕
They both have the Envy24 chipset of VIA.

I tried FSOUND_HW2D and the problem was solved but another problem occured with FMod 3.62.

FSOUND_GetCurrentLevels didn’t work anymore 😥

Can this be solved ?

Extra: I found out that the ticking happens with low frequencies. If i only play high frequencies there’s no ticking.
