Does Your iTunes have Static, Fuzz, or Hiss Sound for You?



Does Your iTunes have Static, Fuzz, or Hiss Sound for You?

Mine did. I got new speakers for my Birthday yesterday - imagine my disapointment when there was still a terrible hissing sound from all the music and podcasts. I thought I'd need to replace my soundcard or something. But then i noticed that sounds on websites weren't making the same sound.

The proof came when i played the same MP3's in WinAmp and iTunes, and the former sounded crystal clear.

Well, bless the web. I had to dig quite deep, so i'm posting this blog in hopes that others Googling this issue will find this and get a straightforward answer!

Go to START / CONTROL PANEL. In there you will find a Quicktime Icon. Click it, and go to the AUDIO tab, as pictured above. Check that SOUND OUT frame - pump your rate up, max that out (Mine was set at 32 kHz). You might want to change to 24 bit too, if your soundcard supports it.

And that's it! I must have searched every setting in iTunes, only to find it was way over in control panel....
