    I never noticed it before, but now, when there is silence either in the beginning or end of an mp3 song, there's a static-y sound. I only picked it up today. It's really noticeable, so I don't think it's a bitrate thing, since I never heard it before. I have a CycloDS v1.13 with a MIJ Kingston 2GB. I will check if this happens on an R4 and on the computer when I have access to them again.

    Over there.
    Nothing here on my R4, everything works fine. Maybe try redownloading/reinstalling Moonshell, or it may be the actual songs itself.

    Okay so I checked on my computer and the R4. The mp3's are fine, since I played it on the computer through the SD card itself and I could hear no static. Using my R4, I also hear the static-y cracking sounds. I think I solved my problem, at least mediate it. I am using Moonshell version 1.71, and with max volume on the DS, and x12 through moonshell, I would hear the noise easily. But if I adjust the DS volume but play at 100x, then the noise is not as noticeable even at the same volume output in my earphones. I also can hear it through the DS speakers, but it's less noticeable. Anyone care to add input? It's probably Moonshell, at least version 1.71.

    Yah, I would think so too. Try redownloading Moonshell, and use different types of music files, like ogg, wav...

    It's due to the sound hardware of the DS itself, and it's not something that can be avoided. I'd recommend leaving Moonshell's internal volume at 100% to prevent distortion caused by software amplification.

    yes as he said, unfortunately.

    its no error on your part.

    it should be barely perceptible.
