Sound pops with Creative X-Fi USB

Postby Kaetemi on Fri Apr 27, 2012 7:52 am

I'm using a Creative X-Fi USB with a 5.1 speaker set attached to it.
When the sound is configured to "Analog Surround 5.1 Output", I regularly hear very random pops and cracking sound, like an old LP.
It's mostly hearable when a loud sound is fading out, and when manually changing volume.
Sometimes it glitches into a continuous popping. Killing pulseaudio fixes it for a while, but that gets annoying after twenty times per day.
When in Stereo Output mode the problem does not seem to happen, but that's not very useful either.

Issue remains when removing PulseAudio and using ALSA.
