For me, the buzzing starts around the first contacts office on mission "Of Bajor". Close to her entrance to around the corner. If I avoid that area, I don't have the issue.

Same exact issue with me. I'm using a Logitech G35.

I am all having that buzzing /grinding sound IS BACK heard it first on ds9 promenade that got fixed what Thursday or Wednesday now that same buzzing is back this time on Ground "Of Bajor". mission logitech g930 ali i can say is hear we go again .. i did submit a ticket ID #1,290,823

this is happen out side of Commander Achabe's office..

Just so you guys know there is a temp fix but the issue will return once you Exit the game and log back into game to play STO

1. go to the Audio tab in game change your out put device to something else like external speakers apply
2. log out not exit out of game . once LONGED OUT EXIT game with the tab on the left .
3 log back into game as normal
4 once back in return to audio tab in the options area of the game.
5 change back your out put device .i.e Logitech g930 and all is ok

UNTIL YOU LOG OUT OF GAME FOR THE NIGHT / DAY note if you have more then 1+ captains you can switch with out any problems if you exit the game and then back in you will have the sound issue buzzing grinding / this is a TEMPORARY FIX hope this help's out . THE temp fix was discovered by a Friend whom had the same issue on DS9 .. whom was trying to fix it on his own ... .

passing it on to others whom might be having the same issue ..



hope Cryptic gets a permanent fix soon . thank for posting guys ..

also getting this issue on Bajor, and, like someone mentioned, seems to start semi-reliably by the first contact office

logging out, even exiting game, didn't help for me; logging back in had exact same sound problems - i had to re-boot my system for sound issue to go away, and it returned while passing by that office

oddly enough, i tried switching to a different sound output line, and the sound went away (as did ALL my game sounds) *EXCEPT* in-game voice still came through just fine. I'm not sure why that is, but whatever audio channel they're pumping voice through doesn't seem to be the same channel that game audio sound is going through - maybe that's normal, I don't know, but I did find it mildly interesting

also had this issue till recently on DS9 - that problem seems to have been solved (at least for the moment) for which I thank you - it gives me hope that the problem on bajor is similar, and hopefully, similarly easily fixed - although it's entirely possible it just isn't going to be that easy...but I can hope, can't I?

Oh thank goodness the noise that was almost making me pray to the porcelain god is finally gone.

Got rid of the Logitech G35 Headset and picked up a Sound Blaster Headset that plugs directly into my sound card.

I was told by a friend Logitech as a company originally had nothing to do with sound so they havenít perfected their sound systems yet.

Sounder Blaster Headset on the other hand was half the cost of the G35 and the sound I get from the Sound Blaster frickin amazing, a lot better than the G35 and the G35 had great sound, but I truly canít believe the sound difference between the two of them.

If you are still having the noise problems on DS9 and from what I have read it has spread to Bajor, get rid of the Logitech headset and pick up a Sound Blaster or some other headset from a company that specializes in sound and isnít just a secondary thought.

Sorry if this sounds like an ad, I didnít mean to.

Thanks for the ad, but this not about the headsets as I have even found other brands that are doing it, including aftermarket sound boards with regular speakers. It's about how the game is handling sound output for various virtualization for speaker configs so for your friend to try to blame logitect cause they didn't do sound before is a lame excuse for a problem more widespread than a single manufacturer.

# 58 Bajor sound issue
02-22-2012, 02:06 PM
I have the issue that used to plague me on DS9 but now on Bajor. DS9 seems to be working properly now but bajor is so screwed up that I have to exit the game entirely to get ride of the horrible buzzing noise. Sound team is 2 for 2 now.

Realtek alc 888 on-board driver version 6.0.1.6526, through Creative 7.1 surround speaker system.

Chances are your Logitech is a 7.1 headset and your creative is not. The issue seems to be with anything 7.1 as i have seen several other posts where people have dropped down to 6.1 or 5.1 and the issue goes away. I noticed that in my case the horrid sound seems to be only from my right and left Side channels. Rear right and rear left as well as Center and front right and left seem to be just fine.

Only from the side channels? Interesting since my headset is a virtual 7.1 I can't really single out a specific channel since its essencially is one speaker for each side. I am going to have do some playing around with settings.
