Is there a way to get sound to come out both my monitor’s speakers and my headphones at the same time? Buy one of those 3.5" headphone jack splitters.

To achieve lower latency the CPU has to service interrupts from the device more often and so move data in smaller chunks - so more chunks will have to be moved. It turns out that the setup and teardown (the overhead) to move a chunk of data to or from a device is significant. So the fewer chunks/second you're handling, the less the load on the CPU. ...

Reboot your router, folks. I was sure the problem isn't with the router because that variable hasn't changed. Then I rebooted it just in case. The problem with my Windows 10 machine disappeared. I guess Windows 10 is more sensitive to whatever was ailing the wireless network, so Windows 10 brought out the symptoms of a problem that must've started some ...

I just figured it out. It seems pretty counter intuitive, but works correctly. You have to go into the advanced options. Then select "Make front and rear output playback two different audio streams". And presto. If you make the headphones your default device, then when you unplug the headphones windows falls back to the rear panel for audio.

The level is too "hot". Are there other jacks you could try? A line-out vs. speaker-out, for example. A "flex jack" might have different modes, and you can configure it for headphones. If all else fails, this level matching is a common problem for pro audio (and hobby use mixing semi-pro and consumer equipment), and you can buy high-quality "pads" that ...

Is there a chance your phone is sitting on the desk anywhere near the speaker or headphone cable? GSM/LTE phones can cause interference with the cables. Does it get louder or quieter with the speaker volume or system volume? This can help determine if it's just background noise on the audio system or if it's something being generated by the computer. If the ...

I found this, http://superuser.com/a/884754/130929, even though it was for Mac. I disabled hardware acceleration, restarted Chrome, and it worked. I turned hardware acceleration back on and restarted Chrome and it still worked. I don't know what the problem was.

What went wrong You're trying to map input streams that don't exist. Here are your input streams: Stream #0:0 Video: prores Stream #0:1 Audio: pcm_s24le Stream #0:2 Data: tmcd You're telling ffmpeg to map 0:0-0:11, but only 0:0, 0:1, and 0:2 exist.

If amixer set Master 2- does not work. Try amixer -D pulse set Master 2- instead. Also 2%- and 2%+ will change the volume by 2 percent, which may be easier to use. You can test these commands in the terminal to adjust them to your liking before you put them in you xmonad config file.

It sounds like the audio driver is corrupt. That means it is likely that uninstall did not succeed. Although a simple uninstall can often leave behind low level settings. Try removing the device following the instructions in this Microsoft document. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff546200(v=vs.85).aspx

Many tools can do that in Windows. (For Linux look here.) Some lists here and here. I also recommend Screamer Radio, already mentioned.

PortPilot is self described as an inline USB power analyzer. You should be able to use this inline with your preamp to detect if there are any problems with the power while in use.

A possible solution for your problem is: set A2DP bitpool size in ~/.asoundrc file the maximum size depends on the device you want to use. You can take a look at http://vlsd.blogspot.nl/2013/11/bluetooth-headphones-and-arch-linux.html. Hope it helps.

I don't have 50pts to comment yet; Crackling in the background, or is it over the voice/sound. A2DP is an auto-adjusting algorithm (bit-size) that uses smaller blocks and can negotiate quicker and get more consistent audio. Crackling is -usually- an issue with interference, or drives having problems with encoding/decoding the signal. If its in the ...

There are two different headset connectors and they are not compatible. but unfortunately, AFAIK, Lenovo uses both. So instead of messing with drivers, you may want to try another headset.

It is due to the default microphone device selected in Skype/call settings. Also if you have Conexan smart audio driver, it is also because of it. I have to select manually the speakers and microphone device every time because of the audio driver. I use the multi-stream audio.

I realize this is an old question, but I recently ran into the same problem and found a solution. The problem seems to stem from the pre-loading of tracks in Tidal. Since you are not using pulseaudio Google Chrome creates a new audio controller every time a track starts playing from your playlist. Tidal's player expects the same audio controller to be in ...
