LR-Atari800 audio with Atari 5200



  • Hi everyone,

    I have recently setup atari5200 support via lr-atari800, got the controls working well etc. But by default the audio is sporadic and mostly missing. Some basic sound play but that is all.

    Any advice is appreciated thanks!



  • I should also add that this is using a 3b+ board, and the latest current retropie updates. And that this is the only emulator having this issue.



  • Similar issue here. Sound works, but there's a loud periodic crackling/popping sound in the audio that's extremely unpleasant. Any suggestions?



  • Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

    Anyone alive out there?

    Start a new topic, then post the details of your system. It may well be a bug with the core which can be fed upstream, but we need information to be able to reproduce it.

    I had the same issue with the sound. For me it helped to change the audio gain (in Retroarch) to 0 (zero). Anything above kills the noise generator and almost mutes most games. By setting the gain to zero all sounds are present!

    @mth75 I'm having exact same problem on latest 4.4.9 pi3b+ are you talking about Volume Gain Retroarch /Audio / Volume Gain DB tried set to 0 it's by default and still same issue.



  • @Virtualman No, i'm talking about the "Audio/Mixer - adjust output volume" selected from the RetroPie / ES menu. In the meantime I tested this problem, which also happens in the VideoPac, and Atari 8bit emulators on 3b and 3b+ boards with different installs (different SD cards from friends).
    This seems to be an Stretch and/or Raspberry Stretch audio driver problem.

    @mth75 Yeah i managed to figure it out, my configs/all/retroarch.cfg global override was doing something, so i deleted retroarch.cfg in config/atari5200/ and it reset it and save directory override and all good got sound now
