In setups with many connectors, devices, channels, or high sampling rates, performance issues can lead to stuttering. First, check whether other processes with a high CPU load may be the issue. Next, try the following
- Reduce resampling by configuring connectors to use the device sampling rate OR change the physical device sampling rate to match the connector’s rate.
- A 1:1 channel mapping reduces the required channel multiplexing.
- Enable buffering on the logical device level (TBD) at the cost of response time.
- If you have implemented your own connectors, try to “pre-compute” audio data if possible.
