Audio becomes choppy and scratchy during normal operations.

I have an ac97 soundcard recognized as Auich ICH. Due to this problem: (https://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/8086) i set the auich.settings file with the right parameters. I set the buffer frames at 512, but is not enough: when i move windows, start apps, manage file and folders and browse on internet, audio of media files (played with MediaPlayer or with vlc) become choppy and scratchy, very unstable. I also tried to set the buffersize to 1024, but this doesn't solve.

Yes, i have a single CPU machine. Is a Pentium 4 Willamette. But differently from #7882 in my case i get stuttering audio also when i open a folder, or if I move files, or if i start any app.. The situation is very bad!

And i get similar issues when i browse internet with WebPositive: while the pages are loading, Haiku freeze for a few seconds, until the pages are completely loaded!

hrev 46301 Despite the fact that this bug was solved https://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/8007 I still have the issue, with the difference that, now, is less noticeable and annoying.

Maybe jua has an idea? ;-) Might be a Media Kit problem after all...

I have noticed that if i tuning the priorities (lower on WebPositive or to any running app) and higher on MediaPlayer and Media Servers, this issue become little noticeable, but still present.

Please note that nightlies have serial debugging activated by default. Please check in kernel settings.

Yes, serial debugging may be a problem, try to disable that (see my comment from today on #8007 how to do that).
Otherwise, this might be fixed by some upcoming MediaKit fixes which I will commit soon (next 1-2 weeks maybe).
Closing this ticket as duplicate of #7882, please continue discussion there :)
You too have a single-CPU machine, probably?
If yes, then duplicate of #7882 in symptoms and #8007 for root cause..
