I am a voice actor with an in home studio. I have used zoom for over 2 years for video meeting and such with no sound issues at all. All of a sudden about a month ago, I've started having crackling audio coming through when in zoom meetings. It only happens through zoom, all other audio sounds perfect.
I'm on 64 bit Windows 10 using a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling zoom as well as my audio drivers and the drivers for the interface.
Any ideas on what might be causing it and how to fix?
I'd also advise if you're using a 3rd party Audio interface to disable any Audio enhancements from Zoom Settings > Audio, such as suppressing background noise and options under 'Music and Professional Audio'. After doing so, see if that helps. If not, I'd also suggest checking all drivers are up-to-date.
I checked those settings and they are as advised, but we are still getting cracking audio. Changing the advanced audio setting "Signal processing by Windows audio device drivers" back and forth between the Auto, On and Off settings stops the issue for a minute or two. None of the 3 options solves the issue, but works briefly. We do need a more durable solution for this.
Like others, this started a couple of months ago as if a switch had been flipped. Had no issues for over a year prior to that.
I have the same problem. I want to connect obs with zoom through a virtual cable but doesn’t work because I get a sound with a crackling sound. I have this problem only with zoom, with google meets or Microsoft teams works well. So, I think that the problem it’s about zoom. Please, help! I need it!
