Sound distortion: KDE with ALSA on Slack10
Whenever a sound plays, there is a strange distortion, as though the sound is skipping several times a second. It seems to be brought out by certain types of sounds, ie distortion... Led Zeppelin is unlistenable, for instance, but the pure tone I use to tune my guitar to sounds fine. Portishead plays pretty well, but Green Day is terrible.
This makes me think it is NOT anything to do with the buffer or hard drive settings... but jic, I tried all the performance-improving stuff suggested by aRTs help, ie DMA, suid root artswrapper, increasing buffer.
Anyone know what the problem might be? I vaguely remember something like this happening when i installed Mandrake back in the day, but I think I fixed it easily from KControl.
