I've already cranked down the resolution and that seems to help some, but the snap crackle pop happens all the time
, even in the menus before you start playing (it's not stuttering that I'm hearing, it's digital distortion).
My CPU is a 1.4 GHz Athlon, so I doubt that CPU speed is the problem.
I'm going to try a few things with the music itself to see if it really is the music being recorded too hot (it plays just fine when I play it through WinAmp, but I notice that the levels are all maxed out on the spectrum analyzer, especially on the mid to low end). I'll let you guys know what I find out.
