Hi there!

I updated to the newest Software: Version 2016.05.17.00
If I playing Soundboard V4 MP3s the robot speaker makes bad clicking-noises.
first I hear a click, then play the sound..

I deinstalled the software and used an 1 month older version..
now its without any click-noises..

I updated to the newest software again..
the bad click-noises are back! *stress*

is this a new future or a bug ?


I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!


That's strange - can you share an Example Project that demonstrates the click? Thanks


@ DJ Sures

thanks for the fast response.

here the video:

first you hear my mouse click, then the soundboard-click



Sorry, I need an Example Project so I can replicate the issue. If I cannot replicate the issue, I'm unable to know what I'm fixing. Hope that makes sense.


now the Example Project is online and ready to download. I shared it with my old account name: "asimo"


I will require a filename or a link to the project. Is it in the cloud? You can also upload to this forum using the attach file option.


its in the cloud/ file name: "soundboard 4.0 bug"

I am having the same problem as Smarty, Getting "clicking" sound before speech starts. I don't have the problem with a EZ Builder version from a few months ago. We had this problem awhile ago but I can't find the thread. I believe it was related to the Talk Servo control. You fixed it DJ.


Here you go:

The volume smoothing of the IoTiny, which uses a different audio technique, affected the v4. The code is reverted for the v4 and a new module controls the IoTiny only.
