Retroarch suddenly has no Audio

I came home today and wanted to start playing some games, and for whatever reason today RetroArch has no audio when playing games whatsoever. I tested out multiple cores, multiple games, made sure Audio was enabled, changed it to +12 db and everything in between and just no audio. When I launch another emulator, Like Dolphin, Cemu, MAME sound works fine. When I launch a Youtube video or a Plex video sound works. So it's not a issue with Windows. This is a brand new Vanilla install of Windows 10 Pro.

Downloaded a new RetroArch version just to see if mine was corrupt somehow but even the new one doesn't have audio either. I went into the driver settings and it's got the xaudio as the audio driver that works on my other PCs with the exact same copy. I'm completely stumped. Nothing was changed last night to today in regards to the settings or PC.

I remember seeing people post about issues with RetroArch and sound in the past.  The one fix that I saw mentioned a few times, that seemed to fix people's issues, was to check to make sure Audio Resampler is set to sinc, CC or nearest in the drivers section in RetroArch.  Not sure if this is the fix for you or not, but thought I'd mention it in case as it was a common issue in the past it seems.  Hope this helps.

Also, if that setting is ok, maybe try using another audio driver other than xaudio to see if you get sound.  Wasapi, dsound, etc. .. another might work if xaudio doesn't for some reason.

So I just got fed up with about an hour of troubleshooting yesterday and just reformatted really quick and it fixed the issue. I'm assuming some weird driver issue was at the bottom of it, but again, I just didn't have the time to really dig deep. Anyways, it's all fixed. Thanks for your suggestions
