No luck with uninstalling, restarting, and reinstalling, unfortunately.
probably a problem with the combination of my music player (Swinsian) and DPS as YT songs sound fine on testing. Either of the 2 programs seems to work okay in isolation.
e: just had glitches with YT songs combined with DPS, not a Swinsian problem it would now appear. The frequency of audio glitches is less than with Swinsian, though.
^ see edit, had to adjust the ‘audio output’ settings a few times, there seems to be some audio glitches every ~20 seconds though… sigh
Not having any crashes, the program loads properly and remains running, there’s just no DPS effect if it’s toggled on/off.
e: after playing around with the settings of my music player, it seems DPS works as normal now.
Would have thought they’d have foreseen this issue (OS updates) surely
same, the DPS updating function is faulty it seems.
Dan, you said it’d cost $19.99 :/
This might seem like a silly question, but does DPS use the same amount of energy/cpu even when no audio is playing? I am trying to figure out whether it is worthwhile quitting the app completely in between use.
Turning notifications off would probably solve the problem as it only occurs when the display briefly turns on to display the track change notification. But, to be honest, playing music without notifications is a big bummer… I like being able to instantly see what song is next without having to listen for the first 30 seconds or so trying to figure it out.
It is a shame, I didn’t realise DPS was that big of a CPU hog. Is it possible that you are not able to reproduce it perhaps you have a better CPU that is, presumably, able to handle it better? My processor is: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5
Okay, I have also discovered the cause of the other “random times” that I mentioned in my original post. It occurs when the screen is asleep but because the monitor briefly displays a notification (banner) when there is a track change. Obviously this is annoying and you basically cannot allow your monitor to sleep while playing music.
When I quit DPS, the split-second gap doesn’t occur.
Nothing special: just typically Firefox, Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF Reader, and music playing app Swinsian are activate. There’s some background apps, such as Bartender, CleanMyMac, Flux, but they aren’t CPU intensive or anything.
Hey, I think I found another slight irritant: it seems that when I wake my Macbook from the ‘display off’ phase while music is playing through DPS, there is always a slight split-second jump gap audible in the song playing. I think I have noticed this at other random times too, but I have not been able to reproduce so it any other way, so it appears most likely to be via this method.
If you are unable to reproduce this, I could probably send a recording.
When you switch between profiles in desktop speakers mode, if the Stereo Controls option is off, the change of profile turns it back on. I should also add the Stereo Controls do not work for me anyway when on, what are you suppose to do to the circles? I’ve tried clicking/dragging them in every direction with no result.
