Hi there, I'm experiencing some high pitched noises when I connect my Virus Snow synthesizer to my hackintosh using USB. I can hear the mouse moving, the scrolling of the websites, the flash applications... Annoying, and in a music studio it's unacceptable!

 

Someones told me that installing a dedicated PCI USB Card can solve this problem.

 

But I've found only one king of card in my city/country:

 

It's a PCI 32 Bit 33MHz card with NEC chipset.

 

It will work on my hackintosh specifications?

 

I'm on a i7, GA-X58A-UD3R, 6 GB RAM running OSX 10.6.2 64 bit!

 

Thanks for your help!

it´s a common issue that appears randomly. the only way to solve it is to change the IRQ´s - hence the advice with an extra usb pci card makes sense, because you could try it in different slots - but this is still not guaranteed that it will work !

How do I change the IRQ?

 

I'm becoming mad with this noise, I need to make my music, please help anyone!

 

 

Thanks for your attention,

iionce more........usually the system assigns different IRQ´s to each slot itself - therefore trying different slots could help. I guess that any USB PCI card should work - but you never know ;)

 

Didn't help, I've bought a PCI to USB and the noise remais! :)

How do I change the IRQs?
