Help and Questions / Re: Playback lag/delay issue

I also had your same experience with Windows 10 after update from 8.1, but switched back. You need to spent some time to tweak Windows 10 to improve playback of OpenMPT. I was kinda upset because Realtek audio panel was not showing. Another option is to use https://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo/ and disable all audio processing and/or other APO filters.
Try Windows native HDAudio drivers then motherboard specific drivers and also Realtek's generic ones with WASAPI, WaveRT and default Windows sound assigner.

For finding the Realtek Audio Manager(or something like HD Audio Manager) you must go first in the settings app(in Windows 10) and on the search box type "Control Panel" and after that you select the Control Panel to open, and you will see some sections, and there is one that is called "Hardware and Sound".
In that section you will see a audio manager and in that manager you will see some settings.
The audio manager settings may vary from each audio device so I think you should try to see if there's a setting that might cause this problem.

If not, then another thing to try is to find a program that uses your sound device, even if the program doesn't make a sound at all.
Such program could be a virtual MIDI synthesizer(a program that uses a soundfont in order to play midi files) or a sound enhancer, and it might use a audio driver that can cause this problem.

If these solutions don't work, then the last thing I think is that your audio driver might be incompatible/wrong for your audio device and you must go to the audio manufacturer's website to see if there is a driver that is compatible with your audio device.

I use Windows 10 and have exhausted every option to try to get Realtek Audio Manager, but I just can't get it on my PC. I've read every article, watched every video on how to get the manager, but it doesn't work. The only compatible drivers that my PC uses are Realtek Audio, I can't get any others installed through device manager. My previous PC used High Definition Audio Device as its driver and that seemed to work fine, but I just can't seem to get it installed on my new PC using device manager. Guess I'm stuck with the lag.

Also, check the latency settings. It is likely that because you use a different audio device, the latency settings have been reset. WASAPI with a small buffer/latency should fix the issue.
I tried fiddling around with latency settings, they have no effect on the delay. I already use WASAPI by default.

Pretty much the only thing about your computer here that matters is the sound device you are using and the drivers. Is it by any chance onboard audio and if so, by which manufacturer?

My new PC uses Realtek Audio.

I think that there are some settings in the audio device management that came with the new computer that are causing this delay.
This problem also happened with my small laptop, each time I pressed the play button in OpenMPT there was a big delay before a song/pattern started to play.

I fixed this problem in Windows 7 by navigating to the control panel and searching some audio device managers and I saw a setting that made the audio signal to do some extra processing and I disabled it, and after that the delay was gone.

You should try to see if there are such settings in a audio device manager that came with your new PC that are related with effects like extra processing. Also if those settings might not be avaiable in the audio manager(for example Realtek), then find in the sound settings for your audio device in the device manager or somewhere that has to do with the sound device.

Realtek seems to be a real pain, I can't even find the Realtek HD Audio Manager, I guess that doesn't matter anyway if there's nothing on the manager to change the delay I experience. I've also tried uninstalling/reinstalling Realtek Audio through the device manager, but still no effect on the delay.

Are there any other things I can try?

Good music. I like the lower bass line differing from and creating tension with the chords. Also love the oldschool piano section. Reminds me of the 90's music. This song may benefit from a little mastering and mixing where the unneeded low would be filtered out of tracks where applicable. Well done, this track gave me a pretty enjoyable listen.

Hello dear ModPlug and OpenMPT colleagues!

I have remastered a production from 2005, back then made in ModPlug tracker with the assistance of Sebastic.

EatMe ft Sebastic (2005) - Underwater Vision Supplement - (2019) remaster by EatMe.

Download mp3: from archive.org or from nl.electrobel.org.
Download flac: from archive.org.

The original .xm source is lost. The remaster has been done in Renoise with the final .wav track.
I remember the ModPlug version from then ending on .27 or .29 ..

No, the latency settings in OpenMPT make no difference in how quick a device starts to respond. It is known that there are some crappy drivers which take ages to initialize, no matter how OpenMPT is set up.
