Help with sound stutter in retroarch


Recommended Posts

I've never had an issue until now but when I try to play any games there is some slight stutter/crackle every so often in the music/sound. I can't recall changing any settings to do for it to do this but it's driving me crazy!  I've tried SNES, NES, and Sega Genesis systems with different cores and i having the issue on all of them.

 

specs for reference:

Windows 10

i7
16gb RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070

There's a couple of things that could be causing stutter and crackle in the audio.

Did you change your Audio Latency setting ? Setting it too low can cause crackle. 24 is generally the lowest I can go on my system here before encountering issues, sometimes I can get away with 16 depending on the core and game.

Did you change your Frame Delay setting in the Video options ? Setting this too high can also cause some issues. Here I can generally go between 5 and 12 depending on game and core. Heavier cores such as BSnes and Saturn may be lower.

Yeah 64 AUdio Latency and 0 Frame Delay is standard settings and you really shouldn't be getting any sound glitches with your system. I know Snes using the BSnes Accuracy core and the Mednafen Saturn can be taxing on lower end hardware but Genesis and NES is very light weight.

Did you change your audio driver in the driver settings by chance ? Xaudio is the default.

Are you using the stable 1.3.6 or a nightly build ?

If you are running into performance issues with Retroarch like stutters and whatnot you are best to check over on their forums for help. It could be any number of causes from drivers to settings you may have changed or the core you are using.
