Oh man I love using the same title over and over again. Like Steve I recently installed iTunes 7.0 That was also the same day I reformatted my computer. After installing the drivers and Creative software for my sound card I noticed this horrible horrible buzzing noise whenever the speakers were up high, even without any music playing through them. Mike told me it was ghosts. So we took my card out of the PCMCIA slot and saw some schmutz on the connectors. We took the schmutz off and plugged it back in. No noise. Wonderful!
Honestly, no one likes to hear bad noise coming out of their Klipsch speakers. It makes your brain hate you. Trust me.
But now whenever I play anything on iTunes, it still crackles and makes a lot of noise…but only when music is playing. I can put the speakers up to 80 with no noticeable extraneous noise. Well well, it seems like Apple screwed this one up:
Specifically, users on Apple’s web forums and our own tipsters are reporting that some new nanos aren’t being recognized in Windows iTunes 7, music being played through iTunes 7 sounds “scratchy” at times[emphasis mine], CoverFlow doesn’t always entirely download properly, and there are allegations that iTunes 7 has become, slow, bloated, and a resource hog.
Oh man I have spent three days trying to clean off every single connector on my sound card so that I can listen to music. My ears are way too sensitive to listen to anything that’s crackling so I just havent had any sound at all and it makes me sad. It’s a good thing I still have the installer for iTunes 6.4
