Hi everybody.

I'm experiencing one annoying issue with audio crackling and noise on headphones.
This affects only headphones, not the internal speakers of notebook.

Curiously, when I first plugin the headphone and start listening music on eg. Spotify, I've noted no crackling or noise, but when I increase or decrease volume level (through menubar or keyboard key) the sound become crackling and voice become unaudible (with noises, other frequencies are also affected).

What I've tried so far:

1. Changing format in Audio MIDI Setup app. No luck.
2. Decreased level of one channel in Audio MIDI Setup. No crackling/noise, but I loose audio quality since basses are off.

Environment:

macOS Mojave Final Build 18A391
Realtek ALC283
Audio injected through AppleALC with fix for layout-id 3 (by vit9696)
Vanilla AppleHDA
layout-id injected with SSDT-HDEF and SSDT-RMCF (method by RehabMan)

Tks.

Had the same issue. Try using CodecCommander + AppleALC + SSDT-AppleALC.aml
cheers!

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

Already tried CodecCommander here, but with this, I have no Audio Device on my Mac.

Generating "Problem Reporting files" like asked.

Come back in a while.

Problem Reporting Files generated.

These files show audio working, but CodecCommander.kext is not installed.

Your kextcache output proves kexts are not installed correctly.
All kexts you need must be installed to the system volume.
Read post #2 of the Clover guide for details:

CodecCommander used with AppleALC requires SSDT-AppleALC.aml (the .dsl is in the CodecCommander repo).

Thanks Rehabman!
Installed CodecCommander with SSDT-AppleALC (used the SSDT-ALC283 from the repo).
Everything is working fine now.

Nice work (as always).
