Product: The Sims 4

Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.53.115.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Load the game and enter live mode.
What happens when the bug occurs? Music will play even with no stereos on the lot.
What do you expect to see? No random music.

Not sure how long this has been going on, but I recently turned on my music setting and now I'm getting random music playing during live mode. Not sure if it's build/buy music or loading screen music, but it is ridiculously annoying. My main music setting is back off - I had only turned it on to start hearing the mix track music station sounds.

If anyone's still experiencing this issue, could you possibly share with me a save file where you've seen it occur? Your Config.log (located in \Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4) would also be great and a video would be the cherry on top! You can DM the link to your files to me, thanks so much for the help!

Re: Nonstereo Music Plays During Live Mode

★ Guide

I get THIS as well as if I go into CAS to edit a sim, or Build Mode. The CAS or Build Mode music will continue playing into Live Mode. Sometimes so loud to the point I can't hear my sims talk to each other or any other environment noises. Also if I do turn on the radio in any form including DJ booths I sometimes get 2 stations at once. Or better yet in a different sim household who will not even own any music playing electronics yet will get the sound of music playing. All of the above doesn't happen all too often (about 25%ish of the time), but when it does happen I have to completely shut down and restart the whole game to get it to stop. 

 

This has happened both WITH and WITHOUT mods on a clean vanilla game. Makes me wish there was a mod or a cheat to find and turn off background music while in the game so I can just turn off the stuff that isn't supposed to be on without restarting the whole game. f there is one someone PM me and let me know!

@aidans1985 You can turn off your loading screen and build/buy music by setting the music setting in Audio to zero. I had to do that to prevent myself from going insane from the music. It does affect the music station, but not stereos and other live mode music.

@WildIrishBanshee I take it reloading doesn't work ? There have been multiple fixes for this .. I'm going to assume you tried this without any mods installed as well.

@crinrict Of course I did. Reloading doesn't always work, no. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't - I check every time I load my game now to see. And I've repaired twice now and did one folder refresh.

@WildIrishBanshee do you also have overlapping music ? Like if you go to buybuild with the music in live mode playing that gets added on top of the other ?

We apparently have an old thread of this from long ago that was closed, but I've never noticed this issue before. Looks like it's an old bug that's come back.
