Conflict with Audio and LEDs

I found a conflict between playback out of the ‘speaker connection’ and running the LEDs at the same time.

While playing audio, music or TTS response, if the LEDs are triggered the audio stops.

While the LEDs are running ‘sometimes’ I can’t play audio.

I’m using the HAL and nodejs demos for the LEDs and have updated to the latest recommended install from this post…

The only clue I have is this message when running the LEDs…
“INFO: [/dev/matrixio_regmap] was opened”

There are no recording/LED conflicts BTW.

Any ideas on what this might be.

Thanks in advance for any help.
