I think I kind of found out why it happens. It only seems to really happen when I livestream. When I do this, I have to open a few programs and what not, and my computer isn't great (However It still runs at 60 VI/s). Recently however it hasn't been popping at all, which is good. But when it starts, I can't really seem to stop it.
Do you think running in Windows basic mode / Using game or window capture in OBS with the emulator would have anything to do with it?
It's possible it could affect it... the audio thread fighting for resources with the capture. Now the biggest question is... does this happen with other audio plugins? For xaudio2, does this happen with Shunyum's audio plugin? (sorry I forget what the name is exactly).
