Hey guys, I am having some serious issues with OS X in general when it comes to playing back audio. I have always been a Windows guy, but bought a Macbook Air in late 2014 to see what I thought of OS X these days. Mostly I really like it, except when it comes to playing music. I haven't got a single program to function correctly with my gear apart from Spotify, which is hardly ideal.
My set-up is as follows:
2014 Air running current version of OS X.
Decibel (or any other audio program really) set to hog mode with preload into RAM.
FLAC and MP3 of various quality.
I actually did manage to get one file to play one time, but it never happened again. Usually I just get a message saying "exclusive access required for.." down the bottom, though exclusive access is enabled. After that it might play a second of the track through the laptops internal speakers and then cut out. My speakers will also do a little bit of popping in this time, like the Focusrite is being turned on and off again or maybe the driver is dropping in and out. I have about 45 hours left on my trial, so would love to get this solved in this time, as I'm not paying fifty bucks (Australia) for something that I can maybe fix. It's all very frustrating when it works perfectly on my Windows machine (MusicBee through WASAPI).
Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
Discuss Decibel, a high quality audio player.
