Re: [vfio-users] Why does the audio from VM crackle?



For me, letting the host load the driver (snd_hda_intel) before passing through the onboard audio to the VM fixed the crackling and buffer underruns. I never found out why this worked... Passing through the physical USB 2.0 controller worked wonders for my USB TV tuner compared to forwarding just the USB port.
Hopefully either of those approaches can help you too.

kind regards, Arjen

I have a on motherboard audio card that I can pass through to a vm

If I do the same with a usb audio device I also get the crackling on
playback.
So I suspect it is due to the latency in the emulated usb.

Possible Solutions:
 - Pass through a pci audio device. (on motherboard / extra audio card)
 - Pass through entire USB controller on pci level (read about this
didn't yet try it myself)

Check your DPC latency, it is one of causes for cracking sound. This is
exact reason i stopped using vga passthrough for gaming..

    I am not the only one who has this issue, but if you emulate an

    is sometimes associated with drops in FPS.

    I know there are ways to pass audio devices to the VM directly, but
    in many setups it would be preferable to pass the audio to the host.

    Does anyone know the reason the audio has distortion or crackling,
    and are there any known solutions to the problem?
