Hello. I've recently downladed playonmac, but I've noticed that the game audio is choppy and inconsistant. In TF2, the audio is just choppy, and slow thoughout the audio playing. In Portal, the audio is fine, but there's some krackly popping in the background. In Plants Vs. Zombies, the audio is choppy and extremely slow.

I don't have any audio software installed, I'm using the Steelseries Arctis 7 with the USB plug in bluetooth terminal.

Thank you for any response given!

I'm running MBP M1 Max 10/24 core. I confirm the same problem. The performance also seems terrible, but it's likely I'm doing something else wrong. I haven't used playonmac before.

I am having the same issue: I am running play on mac on an M1, and their is a lot of audio studdering and glitching when running games or apps. I also had a friend try it on his intel mac, wich is running Mac os 10.15, and the thing he was running was working fine, no audio glitches: perhaps this is an M1 thing only?
