Well well, seems like I just can’t win. VM Banana set up and running, looks good. All settings are as recommended in your video. However, I now havea problem with distortion from Cantabile. Audio out of Cantabile is crystal clear until I start a hangout, if I close the hangout then audio goes back to being clear. Doesn’t matter whether audio in Hangout is set for Voice or Studio- as long as a Hangout is active, the audio is very distorted and as soon as I disconnect the distortion disappears.
I’ve tried restarting the audio engines in Voicemeeter and Cantabile. I’ve tried rebooting Windows. I’ve tried running my internet connection via ethernet rather than wireless, shutting down unnecessary background processes and adjusting the bandwidth within the hangout. When running the Hangout, CPU usage is 38% and physical memory is 76% (not great but shouldn’t be high enough to cause a problem- I think). The Hangout does use a lot of memory- the Memory usage drops to 56% when I shut the Hangout down. I have 6GB of RAM and the laptop tops out at 8- i know, more would be better, but buying another laptop is not a viable option.
So I’m out of ideas. Suggestions?
