Emulator Issues #8627
Audio Crackling/Stopping while running Dolphin (All programs)
Game Name?Super Smash Bros Melee
Game ID? GALE01
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
Audio Crackling. Sometimes audio cuts completley
What did you expect to happen instead?
What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Open dolphin (weird things happen here for me. if I have music running, the audio quality of the music drops)
- Run the Super Smash Bros Melee
Dolphin 3.5 and 3.5-367 are old versions of Dolphin that have
known issues and bugs, so don't report issues about them and test the
latest Dolphin version first.
Which versions of Dolphin did you test on?
Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which
versions of Dolphin used to work?
I play this game mostly on 4.0-5886 but have test and the most recent version that I do not have this issue is on 4.0-6135

I have also had a very similar issue, tested on builds 6697 and 6500
When running Dolphin, after about 2-3 minutes (no emulation required, having Dolphin open is enough) Windows sound cuts out entirely, closing dolphin does not rectify the issue.
Unplugging and replugging in my USB DAC does fix the issue, but if dolphin is still open it will fail again in 2-3 minutes.

MOBO: Gigabyte X79-UP4
GPU: 8192MB Radeon R9-290X
SOUND: USB Sound Blaster Digital Music Premium HD (No Creative Drivers installed, using Windows stock USB Audio Class drivers.)
Expected Behavior: Audio continues to function

I changed from my USB headset (had audio problems) to my speakers that plug into the back of the PC aka the mobo and there were no audio issues.
My headset is a steelseries 9h.
Opened dolphin without mayflash adapter plugged in and still had audio issues.
Something with the USBs and Gamecube controller adapter like JMC said. We know its that because thats when dolphin started having this issue after 4.0-6135

I am using a USB Audio 7.1 adapter, and I am still not getting any sound on the latest version (4.0-7345). Going backwards and testing prior revisions, I am able to get sound working on 4.0-5400. I was going back in 100 increments, and still got no sound as old as 4.0-5600, so I'm not exactly sure when sound stopped working. Hopefully this will be helpful in isolating the problem and a fix though, thanks!
