View Full Version : Mac OS 10.4.10 Update in the works

According to a few news sites, that since Apple are delaying Leopard, they would take the opportunity to finalise all the bugs in 10.4.9 (i.e. audio-related issues).

There's audio-related issues in 10.4.9??? Haven't noticed anything like that on my eMac.

Also, I read yesterday that the talk of Leopard's delay was false and contributed to a fake email Engadget published. Link (http://www.itwire.com.au/content/view/12256/1103/)

applecollector: Apple have gone on public record stating that 10.5 will not be released to the public before October ... the implication that it could be delayed even further cannot be discounted.

As to the audio glitches: There's a slew of issues surrounding OSX's audio capabilities at the moment, especially in the pro audio arena. Channel drops/losses, random balance settings and woeful timing issues are well documented, and most of the problems can be traced back to Apple's own audio kernel extensions; Steinberg (makers of Cubase and Nuendo) and Digidesign (the Avid company who make Pro Tools) both insist on bypassing the Apple kexts entirely.

+1 on that Brains, especially when changing system volume there's lag.

Don't know if anyone else has noticed this but i've seen two 17" Core 2 Duo MBPs do this... When waking from sleep, a rushing sound comes out of the speakers :S

The random balance thing is quite annoying on my old iBook G4 1.33Ghz.... it would regularly just shift the balance slightly to the left. For no apparent reason.
