Description Of Issue

No matter what device I use if I’m listening kto music while playing World of Warcraft I will hear occasional stutters. I have no idea what’s so special about WoW Retail but it’s honestly infuriating.
I understand I’m not quite the ideal use case here but I have tried every combination of settings I can and my signal path is always completely lossless:
Tidal → PC → Mojo
Local Media → Mojo

If while I’m playing WoW I move over to a different application and WoW is no longer in the foreground the problem goes away completely!

It’s quite likely to be a thread priority issue, i.e. when WoW has the focus it occasionally prioritizes some activity that causes the music to stutter.

Hi @Victor_Timpau

Are you still seeing this issue?

Are there any other apps at all that this has happened with? Any other games or anything?

Can you share a screenshot of the signal path when this is happening?
