From time to time I get a lot of static noise when playing sound. It stops when no sound is played (e.g. when music playback is stopped).
- Seems to be independent from output device (same symptons with either my speakers or headphones)
- When stopping sound, the static noise lingers for just a tiny bit. It doesn’t stop immediately
- Unplugging my speakers and then plugging them in again amplifies the symptoms.
- Opening the
alsamixerGUI in the terminal and making sure that the levels are not in the red area makes things a bit better, but doesn’t solve this issue
Lastly, for what I can tell, this happens at completely random times. And it goes away just like that. I tried rebooting several times, no luck. At some point in the future it will be just fine.
So I have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on and how to fix it.
