Quote from: REDrangeDal on June 27, 2019, 11:15:37I 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.
Quote from: REDrangeDal on June 28, 2019, 09:20:06For 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.

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.
