    Hi folks,

    I'm a newbee here with the same sound stuttering issues since ML.

    Thanks to my son I got rid of that by:

     

    Finder View menu > Show View Options

    Disable "Show icon preview"

     

    I had found out that this problem only occured when opening a partition that showed a lot of icons.

     

    Imac 27" late 2011

     

    Hard drive: 2TB Hitachi HDS722020ALA330

     

     

     

    Hope this works for all of you

    it is NOT just audio stuttering but also Frames being dropped in Apple's own FCPx... Since 10.8.2 our lives have been ****. Pure and simple... Our Pro Audio Software Protools HD has been having so many audio drops it is unbarable. FCPx has become almost unusable at least if you care about real time playback...

     

    But hey... We got a lot of social networking features. That no one uses. With each upgrade of OS X, Apples rep. as a professional platform diminishes....

    Hehe.... Yeah.. On other forums, the automatic spelling checker works.. On this here... It does NOT.

    Goes to show where Apple is headed - quality-wise.

     

    Hail C.F.

    Yes, I have to admit that Mountail Lion has been pretty much a total disaster for actual work. I started getting disk too slow errors in Logic Pro, and I'm running a system with 2 SSDs, so it's not a throughput issue. In fact, since my current machine (mid-2012 Macbook Pro) shipped with ML, I've been quite worried about whether the hardware is dodgy -- that's how bad it's been. Anyway, fingers crossed that it's not beyond repair... Though it's actually possible that the problems are too deeply rooted to be easily fixed. Hope not.

    Hey, this is my fist post to the Apple thingy, and I can't believe it is something as simple as audio stuttering! But as you all have expressed, it is very, very frustrating and that's why I'm here.

    Anyways!

    I have tried all kinds of things to make the stuttering stop, because it's not just in iTunes for me! It's while I'm on youtube also, (except the whole screen freezes along with the audio stuttering).

    The most notable thing I've tried is deleting my original user account off of my mac by creating another admin account, switching to it, then deleting the original. - I just wanted to make sure that there was nothing related to the problem connected to my user account. After that, I backed everything up and erased my laptop hard drive except for my critical OS X stuff.

    I thought maybe clearing my hard drive of any clutter would be the best bet for fixing the problem.

     

    But the problem persists.

    I'm going to reinstall a fresh copy of mountain lion and see if that fixes anything.

    Also, has anyone else experienced the YouTube freeze in Safari when viewing in full screen?

    I think it is linked to the audio playback stuttering.

    Whoa - I'm stunned and happy to say this fixed my issues (for now at least). Mail was creating terrible stuttering in iTunes, QTime and Flash player whenever it was open, so I stopped having it open (checked mail on the iPhone). What a simple tip.

     

    Thanks a ton 7thstring!

    Otrax.  Don't bother with anything further.  Just wait till 10.8.3.  Others have also tested it and said it resolved this issue and I would agree with them on that point.  Otherwise, try and get the beta if you can.  But I can tell you from my own 7 months of **** from this company that prides itself on quality, it's inexcusable that it has taken this long.  Glad it is remedied, but after all the hoops that have had to be jumped through, I don't trust Apple any more.

    I just found/downloaded/installed  10.8.3 Update 12D43....  My Audio Crackle still is a **** issue.  I use a line6 podxt plugged in to usb and my electric guitar, and havent been able to record since I installed ML.
    Crackles in my audio.   Im so ticked off at apple.

    It's exactly the same thing for me with a M-Audio Inspire 1394 FireWire400 on an iMac 2011/27 with 16 Go Ram. All my softs for music are useless. Such a shame. For the first time, i hate Apple. 7 months and still no reaction, where is the soul ? For all my professional works, i have to rent a mac on Lion. Hopeless...

    I just want to check in again. Since I brought my Mac to the Apple store and they replaced the logicboard, I have had zero audio issues. It's been a few weeks of extensive testing, so I can conclude that Mountain Lion was not the culprit afterall.

     

    I suggest others look at their hardware more closely as well, as ML may just be acting as a false positive.
