Could be.. On my tests; 8000, 44100 (Hz) are working.. while 11025, 22050 are not.

(Not really sure with 48000Hz, my issue with this freq is damn big *.wav size #LoL)

me too. but 8000hz sound is not good. similar electronic sound. f7 test sound with bootcamp theme, same too(electronic).

in my case i can listen good quality with only 44100hz.

so, clovy theme sound is not good for me. because it has 8000hz

 

EDIT1.

when play clovy theme sound.wav in itunes, sound quality is not bad. it doesn't have electronic sound.

i think clover force to change frequency? 8000 hz to 44100hz? in this process, generate electronic sound?

i don't know exactly. i didn't see it in detail.

Hmm... Mat, your sound.wav seems to be 22.3 kHz instead of 44.1 kHz. Not sure that would make a difference....but I'm trying to take them one by one and see where does it fail. Also, make sure you have the latest Clover installed. And update AudioDxe upon installation, just in case there could be something in that that could create issues.

Also, I'd say...try to clear NVRAM (F11 on Clover boot selection screen), then try to set everything once again.

 

Could you, please, try the attached sound.wav instead?

 

Your setup looks ok... And if it works from Shell with option 5, that should also be the choice for Clover Startup Sound UI.

sound.wav

 

I've got the sound, now. Thanks a lot. I did not check my downloaded file on the forum on a previous post

 

The sound come on Clover "scan entries" instead of Clover GUI. Is this normal?

Haha! The sound should be played before the UI shows up. I don't have "scan entries" activated, but yeah, I think that's probably intended.

 

Also, you're welcome. :)

Same. 

 

Awesome!

 

Is there a way to get rid of the metallic sound of the wav? It played clearly testing with BootChimeCfg but when hitting F7 in the Clover options and when it plays automatically it is buzzy.  My desktop it plays fine. Stupid laptop. 

The sound by F7 is not Chime sound it is guitar sound by Roger Glover.

If 8000 works then 48000 works too.

EDIT:

Yes but the sound.wav from Clovy theme was metallic and buzzy when played at boot.

 

"If 8000 works then 48000 works too."

 

Thanks for this.

 

Updating from 4858 to 4859 and converting the wav to 48000 32 bit float fixed it. This is crazy awesome!

 

But here is what it was like before

 

Clovy theme boot.m4a

Hi

 

I don't understand why Clover shows only 2 devices on my system: Nvidia, Intel Pointer... Where is Realtek ALC892! Is this normal. Thanks.

well. i tried this on my Dell but something is not right.

 

It can load BootChime in shell and sound works - sets/plays sound properly when i select Speaker.

 

but i get this with Clover  (on latest 4859)

Question: 

is there a way to set display Menu ratio X:Y ?

my native screen is FHD 1920x1080 (16:9 = 1.778) 

but i have to boot with 1280x1024 (1.25) or 1024x768 (1.333)

so everything looks squashed.

 

I am using Clovy - so it may be adjustable? - I see scale multipliers but not sure for non-uniform x vs y.

Don't confuse the high definition audio controller chipset with the high definition audio codec chipset.

I haven't had much success with this boot audio so far but with 4859 it's now playing back the built-in sound fine. However I want it to play back a custom chime.

 

I'm using the embedded theme and put the sound.wav into the theme folder but it defaults to the built-in one. Is it not possible to replace the chime for the embedded theme or is this a bug?

Ok. With bootchimecfg.efi, I"ve got sound on green rear Line out. But with commits 4859: no more sound with first Line output select in audio output parameters :cry:.

You are right, this is a bug will be corrected.

 

There is the same issue with Audio Tuning: Clover don't save changing HDALayoutId after restart on my system.

Despite the explanation of Apianti, I do not understand why there is no ALC892 in the devices.

The issue should be debugged. First I want to see your boot.log.

 

@All

Sound 8000Hz has a bad quality but I include it into release because of space.

If you want a better quality place sound.wav 44100 into your theme folder.

Embedded theme is an exclusion. It has no own folder to download files and so embedded sound can't be replaced. Use other theme or build own clover with own sound.c sources. Beware the size!

Clover uses square pixels in any case of vector themes. Screen will be any ratio and background will be scaled in the same ration in X and Y then cropped.

can we play boot sound with 8000hz like itunes?
i remember when clover first include audiopkg source, sound is no problem. isn't it right?

I think iTune also converted sounds because sound card has own abilities

Playback:

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.

      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.
