Fix: Stuttering Sound With Amd Cpu (10.9 & 10.8)

Question

Dodior    3

Hey everybody.This is a quick way to fix stuttering Audio will start to stutter - thats why you have clear sound when you move your mouse around.

 

Now for me, i try'd different kext's and solutions like activating SSE2 on Voodoo PrefPane and almost every other solution that is floating around on the Interwebs.

 

So im using a Quadcore AMD Cpu , and my way to "fix" this bug is to put the CPU usage on 100%.

But since you're using multiple Cpu's your performance won't go down. For example i can still run everything very fast and crisp, even games still run without any problems. Long story short > i noticed no difference in performance.But this might change on a different AMD CPU . So try it on your own risk. But let me assure (this won't brick your OSX Installation its just a terminal command).

 

 

Step1. Open Terminal.app

Step2. "yes > /dev/null" without quotation marks into terminal app.

Step3. Press Enter and enjoy proper Audio.

How to Disable:   "no > /dev/null"  without quotation marks into Terminal app.

 

 

Note: Terminal have to run as long as you want to have this "Fix" applied.

When you close Terminal, it resets itself. So just start the command and minimize Terminal !

Enjoy and have a nice day! And much thanks to Niresh crew for providing great mackintosh distros.

This works for me, but there has to be a better way to fix this issue.  Any ideas?  I am new to the Hackintosh realm but am willing to help where I can.  I have a Phenom2 x4 965.  Everything else works perfect except the crackling Audio.

This works for me also. Thanks a lot was losing hope lol. Is there any way to have this automatically applied during startup? This This way it does not have to be done manualy every start up.

Niresh 10.9 everything works but can't fix Audio in all 3 different sound cards... 

Maybe a late response but i have the same motherboard and CPU as you and i was also screwing with it for 2 days.

Here is the FIX:

  • Enter the Bios from your motherboard.
  • Go to Jumpfree/CPU config > DISABLE "AMD TURBO CORE"
  • Do this fix and it will work! :)

I think many people with processors that have AMD Turbo Core have the same issue, and i think this needs to be set in the Niresh Install Guide

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
