    How to replicate the problem:

    Basically I’m not getting static or choppy audio, but random sounds are not playing. Game is Symphony of the Night, I can’t hear Alucard swing his sword and some mobs play their sound effects and some don’t. On some screens the music plays, sometimes it doesn’t. I’m kind of confused by these symptoms since the game itself is running really well with no slowdowns, so it’s hard for me to think it’s a bottleneck issue..

    I’ve used lr-pcsx-rearmed and pcsx-rearmed, I’m not sure the difference here – I don’t know Retroarch that well, but I work with Linux a lot. I don’t have sound issues on other games (This is the only PSX title), although this is probably the most demanding thing I try to run.. I don’t hear stuttering or anything in audio, just some things don’t play. Was hoping anybody had some suggestions here. I’m going to try some other ISO’s shortly, but I know this ISO is good.

    Thanks for any input
