BART crashing - Sound problem on Mac?

By aliucsd - 6/20/2016


I am running the most recent version of the BART (regular version, not auto) on Inquisit 4 (downloaded today, 6/20/2016), on a Mac running OSX 10.9.4 and getting the following error. Any help would be great, thanks!

The error suggest that your Mac for some reason has a problem with its audio interface or some of the files involved.
- Does audio otherwise work fine on this system?
- What is the system's audio setup (e.g. using only internal speakers, using external audio devices attached via HDMI or the like)? In other words: Is there anything special or unusual about the configuration?
- Do the files play back fine in iTunes?
- Are there any other applications running concurrently using the soundcard(s) in some extensive capacity?
