View Full Version : [ubuntu] USB sound card works only with sound preferences open

Hey there!

I'm having weird problems with my usb external sound card. The sound is excellent when sound preferences is open, but when the window is closed, sound starts crackling.

The model of the card is Sound Blaster's SB0270, but I have a feeling it's not about the model...

What is different when the sound dialog is open? What actually changes when the window is closed? Answers to these questions might solve the problem.

All help is appreciated!

Does anybody know what might cause the different behavior with sound preferences open? How to make it permanent?
