Clicking / Popping sounds when hum loops

Did all the troubleshooting steps mentioned in this thread:
Clicking Sounds… I don’t even understand. Is this just normal? It’s happening on 2 brand new proffie sabers. Read further to see troubleshooting steps taken - Proffieboards - The Crucible (

including removing all .bmp files from /common (which fixed that person’s issue).

On Proffie 7.2 and sdtest came back 2100kbs at 28 audio streams.

Am also using free sound fonts from:

When I play the hum files in a loop on my pc they sound fine.

Is there any additional troubleshooting I should do?

Do you have other sound fonts to test? A lot of free sound fonts simply aren’t well made and just don’t loop well, I’d try and see if you have the same issue with a different sound font.

If you don’t have any other sound fonts try Kyberphonic’s “Kyber’s Workshop” which is a collection of high-quality free sound fonts.

Yes I tried the sound font in another saber and it loops with the pop. I’ll chat with the creator and see if he can remix the sound files. Thank you.

If the maker won’t bother just pick up Audacity and zoom-in and clean up the start and end of the hum. You only need the littlest bit but both start and end need to be at “zero”.

@NoSloppy had a great video on this stuff IIRC.
