  1. Audio devices are listed, but no almost no sound is present. Very quiet yet distorted sound. For example, sound playback via iTunes sounds like the correct music playing (i.e. beats are in time), but very quiet. System volume at 75%. System plays audio as expected (successfully) through other interface, other systems connected to same line in on amplifier also work as expected (successfully). Audio was working fine until I connected a Pioneer USB controller which installed an aggregated device, despite it not being used (i.e. phono line out from controller was used, bypassing the aggregated device).
  2. 10.13.6, build 17G5019 (edit: Z97MX-Gaming 5, i7-4790L, HD 4600 + Quadro P600).
  3. MultiBeast for High Sierra, 10.4.0
  4. Included, verified.
  5. Included.
  6. Included.
  7. Included.
  8. config.plist included, dsdt.aml not present, ssdt(s).aml not present.
  9. Attached.
Thank you in advance for any pointers and further reading.

Did you remove the Pioneer software?
Yes, using AppCleaner. No residual aggregate device left, and sound was working as expected with the aggregated device installed before the software was run (i.e. software installed, aggregated device present, sound working fine).

Not clear if your statement is true, yes or no? Used or not, irrelevant.
If true, something was damaged and it did not get fixed
Suggestion, run the macOS installer/10.13.6 over the current install

Hey Everyone, having issues with my audio (which was working fine) after installing a second GPU in my system. I've tried a few fixes to no avail (probably overlapping/conflicting at this point?) Basically I have HDEF showing, but my layout-id is stuck at <07 00 00 00> despite injecting 1 in Clover.

Not the problem. Installed MultiBeast/AppleALC method without removing previously installed MultiBeast/ALC1220 method. To remove MultiBeast audio, see AppleHDA Realtek Audio/Post #1/X. Uninstall AppleHDA Realtek Audio/2. MultiBeast ...

Mojave removed many audio layouts. For backward compatibility, AppleALC sets layout-id = 7 and introduces alc-layout-id = 1 from config.plist/Devices/Inject/1 as the attached IOReg shows

Hey Toleda, thanks for the quick response. I followed the steps to remove the Multibeast method. EDIT I Removed a lot of other misc possible fix remnants and I'm back in action. Thank you!

If convenient, an experiment:
Remove FakePCIID-Intel-HDMI-Audio.kext
Restart, reply with new files.

If no audio, restore FakePCIID-Intel-HDMI-Audio.kext
If audio, remove FakePCIID.kext
Restart, reply with new files

I removed both and got audio to work. Not sure if that helps?
