Audio with OS X 10.4

Post by merzben »

Hi all,

I've successfully managed to get OS X 10.4 working in QEMU with sound after following adding these arguments:

Code: Select all

-device ich9-usb-uhci1,id=newusb -device usb-audio,bus=newusb.0
Which I found from this guide ... /MacOS10.4
This works, however that clicking/scratching sound is present, which I've reading about being a problem with emulating this version of OSX in a couple places.
I just wondered if anyone's figured out any fix for this problem, or if there's a new experimental branch of QEMU with better audio support available? I tried following other guides that use QEMU-Screamer, but I couldn't get it to work. I'm primarily emulating this version of OSX for using old music production software, so usable audio is a must.
Right now I'm running QEMU 6.1.0 on OSX 10.15.3 Catalina.

Thanks so much!
