Problems With Pause

Post by stephen » Tue Dec 27, 2011 7:33 pm

Hi,

Just downloaded the trial of Decibel and I'm really impressed with the sound output quality. Great work! One problem I have though is that I can't seem to be able to pause the audio at any point. The play icon simply doesn't respond at all. I can use the Apple remote to skip to the next or previous track but Decibel won't respond to the pause/play button on it.

I'm using V1.2.5 (25) on 10.6.8

It would be nice to be able to assign system wide/global keys to the pause/track advance functions so you can control the player whilst using Safari for example.

Thanks,
Stephen

Are you using an external DAC? It seems this problem usually occurs with an external DAC using a custom driver.

Yep, I'm using Digidesign hardware at the moment which relies on the Digidesign CoreAudio Driver application.

Can confirm that pause works fine when using the built-in audio but fails when using the Digidesign hardware.

Would you be willing to enable logging and either post or send me the resultant log?

OK, I've posted the log below. I set the log level to 7, played a few tracks and attempted to pause and resume a few times. Hope this helps solve the issue. I'm running OS X 10.6.8.

One additional piece of possibly relevant information about this issue... I'm running Decibel in 32-bit mode as the driver for my sound card is 32-bit only.

It seems the device driver isn't posting the kAudioDevicePropertyDeviceIsRunning event. I don't know why!

Anything is possible with these Digidesign CoreAudio drivers!
