Greetings on this thread also and many Kudoz for this magic software!
So, I tried to use the latest 10.02 Beta (and 10.0.1 earlier) and unfortunately the output of the sound was filled with crackling noises. My setup currently is this :
Jazzler --> VAC Input --> StereoTool --> Stream with the build-in engine or with RadioCaster.
At first I got scared and rolled back - most settings seemed to have been loaded properly which meant the preset was ok. Today, I tried again and I still got the crackling sound.
Finally I spotted that the culprit (in my case) was that for some reason ST had selected for my Input Kernel Streaming/ VAC - B Output . Theoretically Kernel/Wasapi/Mme should all be working correctly, but only MME seems to be working.
Red for Crackling, Green for sweet sweet sound!
Sorry for not replying sooner. I want to investigate this issue further, because i would expect the old and new code to behave exactly the same. If they don't, that points at a bug or change somewhere. It may only affect one person now, and you managed to work around it, but once we release this this will probably cause issues for many people.
So, first can you tell me what the exact difference is in behavior between version 9.92 and 10.02?
Which of these work?
MME in 9.92 vs 10.02
Kernel Streaming in 9.92 vs 10.02
Wasapi in 9.92 vs 10.02
What I think based on your earlier comments is that MME works in both versions, Kernel Streaming works fine in 9.92 but is broken in 10.02, Wasapi unknown for 9.92 and broken in 10.02. Can you confirm these and test Wasapi in 9.92?
Also, is your output buffer very small? Because there are 2 possible reasons for this: The output buffer might be on the edge and be _just_ fine in 9.92 and not in 10.02, or the sound card driver might be behaving differently, which would mean that we're doing something differently in accessing it.
Also, if you tested version 10.01 (that was very early in this beta post), that was before we updated the I/O layer in Stereo Tool... I'll wait for your answers first, I might have other tests to suggest depending on what they are.
