Thanks again for this! I tested today with the winepulse alterations and I'm getting performance similar to what I get in windows, with no crackles so far. Sometimes the sound gets really distorted, even unrecognizable, in which case I have to restart pulseaudio to fix it (this used to happen in wine applications for me a while ago). This only seems to happen when I open new applications that use pulseaudio. Let me enumerate the problems you fixed for me . I can now record with obs, use hitsounds without changing my offset every time (makes mapping much easier), play hitsounded beatmaps, so I can re-enable effect sounds now (like the countdown and miss sound). Because I had a -130ms offset before, it messed with the AR of the first note on most maps and made getting a 300 on the first note really hard if there was no musical lead in. That's been remedied too I noticed you got some of your information from other sources but its the winepulse alterations that helped me, so here's another thank you from me, hopefully showing you how grateful I am I'll let you know if I find anything I can help with!
