I have an ear-tickling problem for you!
When I scrub streaming audio in my timeline, a buzzing sound occurs and it wont stop until I close Flash.
I cannot hear the streaming audio in the background and the sound doesn't change if I scub other FLAs or timeline positions.
I know it's isolated to Flash because other programs' sound continues to play fine and the buzzing stops only when closing the entire Flash program (not just the open project).
Here's what I'm running:
Adobe Flash Professional CC
Model Name: Mac Pro
Model Identifier: MacPro5,1
Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Help me Adobe Wan Kenobi! You're my only hope!
The buzzing sound issue was reported by some users on OSX 10.8 too, so I dont think this is entirely specific to OSX 10.9. However this should be fixed in the next update that will be coming soon.
I am having the same EXACT problem on my MacBook Pro 2010. Hope this fix happens quickly. Good luck on your deadline. I have deadline looming as well.
This is the danger of updating OSX too soon, without setting up a bootable copy of the previous OS. I blame myself for not doing that.
I have the exact same problem with CC in both OS X 10.8 and 10.9. This makes Flash unusable in our work flow and is simply inexcusable that a product could ship this like this. Adobe should provide and temporary license for CS 6 (which does not have this problem to those of us who have a CC subscription , until they can ship a usable product)
Is there a temporary solution? This is a very important part of my current project.
Unless the fix comes out within the week, I'm in trouble.
If the problem is nonexistent in CS6, could I get a temporary license?
Thanks for your help!
If you have a Flash Pro CC subscription Flash Pro CS6 will also be available to you on creative cloud. You can do the following in that case
1) Go to https://creative.adobe.com/
2) Go to the download center link
3) Choose the product Flash Professional
4) Below the "In this version" label there is a dropdown for choosing either Flash Pro CC or Flash Pro CS6. Choose the product that you need and click on the download button to download.
This is a real problem in my current animation workflow, which relies heavily on scrubbing streamed Flash Pro CC Timeline Audio. With many deadlines, looming regular updates on the status of this fix would be appreciated. I am temporarily moving to Flash Pro CS6, but I notice it has rendered a couple of items differently (particularly where gradients are involved) so I would feel better working in the tool I have been developing in for months. Thanks!
I understand how you feel. I am working in CS6 now, which is okay, but it's taking some getting used to again. A step backwards.
One of the things that's disconcerting to me is that Adobe, like any other dev, had Mavericks for MONTHS of testing. And yet there's still this issue.
This is the kind non-compatibility issue thing that got Adobe in trouble with Apple in the first place. And still no viable fix days later and no real indication of WHEN it will be fixed. With the whole ridiculous CC (temporarily rent your premium software now) thing I expect a lot more attention to detail than what I've seen in this situation.
You said this wasn't Mavericks specific but now you say that there is a workaround for 10.8 We are paying a lot of money for your new "awesome" service(??? )and you are giving us no information about when this will be fixed.
I'm so mad at Adobe right now. I lost 8 hours today(probably have to work in CS6 which is causing tens of different problems since i'm working on illustrator and photoshop CC) which will effect my utilization rate very badly. This issue has been around for a while and you stil say we are working on this. SO my question is what happened all of your good coders who could at least make the audio file work?
I'm sure someone is working on this problem, but seriously, this is really to starting to affect people's workflow. Can any information be put out there besides "We're working on it"? I would be more patient but a bug fix was released today and it did nothing to correct the audio buzzing problem.
This is happening in Flash CC with both MacOS 10.8 and 10.9 on two different iMacs.
Muting sounds from the Commands Menu allows me to scrub through without triggering the bug, but dosen't turn off the buzz after it's started.
Flash 6 appears to the only viable workaround at the moment.
Having same issue, but not just with scubbing. Just trying to play a 16-bit, 44.1KHz, stereo AIFF sound added as a keyframe on the main timeline. No matter set as Streaming or Event, buzzing starts as soon as I hit Play, and won't stop until I quit Flash. The Mute Sounds command does not stop the buzzing.
This is a show stopper. Please post a patch SOON!
It's November 25 and there's still no fix to the sound issue with Flash CC. It doesn't appear Adobe is in a hurry to fix this problem.
As a side note, I also have Sonic Fire Pro installed on my Mac running OS X 10.9. When I upgraded to the 10.9 it broke Sonic Fire Pro where you wouldn't hear any sound. They released verion 10.8 to fix the problem. Point is, it could be an OS problem. Maybe Adobe should contact them to see how they resolved the issue.
This is a snippet from Adobe support web site, http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/mac-os-mavericks-compatabili ty.html
"When you scrub streaming audio in your timeline in Adobe Flash Pro CC, a buzzing sound occurs and requires you to close Flash. A workaround is in process and Adobe plans to release it soon."
The only temporary fix is to use CS6 of Flash Pro. Of course projects saved in CC probably won't open in CS6.
The new update(Flash Pro CC release - November 2013) that has a fix for this issue is now available to you. This Flash CC update will update your flash version to 188.8.131.52.
You can update from the Adobe Creative Cloud application or from Flash Pro CC Help -> Updates menu.
