10.4: Fix a muted Plantronics USB microphone on 10.4.10

I also ran into this problem with my Plantronics USB audio adapter, and the MIDI audio thing worked for me.

I think you have to re-do the fix after each reboot.

There was also a post 10.4.10 audio fix, but I'm not sure if it addressed this issue.

Prior to 10.4.10, I had problems with the Plantronics adapter a few times.. When I would plug it in, occasionally my whole system (MacBook Pro Core2Duo) would lock up -- no mouse movement, nothing just had to power down & restart.

How long did you wait before restarting?

My systems exhibits the same "locked up" behavior whenever I reconnect my plantronics audio .85 when I get back home, but it usually becomes responsive again in about 5-12 minutes.

I don't know why it takes so long, but I figure it has to do with all the apps I have running plus the fact that I use filevault and even have my virtual memory encrypted on my C2D MBP (2gb ram).
