Voicemeeter Virtual Cables Crackling ONLY in OBS for recordings and livestreams


New Member
Hi, I am using VOICEMEETER POTATO with 3 virtual cables. A, B, and the FREE one. When having them routed in OBS to each have a different output so I can better control their sound and audio for the stream only, the audio for all outputs is crackling constantly. This is only happening in OBS. I tried playing spotify in audacity as my microphone and the audio was perfect. Through OBS though, it is not. I will attach a video using obs recording, playing spotify through the Virtual cable B. You will hear the sound problem.

To sum it up, OBS is "breaking" my virtual cables that work well with any other program, and I would like to find a way to fix the issue.

Thank-you, any help is appreciated
