"crackling" distortion
#1
I have been using JamKazam for several months. Whenever I play in a session, the others describe a "crackling" distortion in my audio output. I do not hear it in my earbuds. Latency has not been a problem. My setup is:

MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015) plugged in
MacOS Big Sur Version 11.01
Sterling Audio SL230MP Matched Pair mics
Earbuds
FocusRite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface
HyperDrive HD30F USB-C Hub
Ethernet cable -> Synology RT2600ac router -> D-Link DSL-520B ADSL2+ modem
(Would plug directly into modem, but it only has one output socket and I’d rather not unplug router)
Verizon DSL internet service

I am playing a concertina: https://youtu.be/wqwDnMXrY9Q

Other internet devices in airplane mode during JamKazam sessions.

Any suggestions/help would be appreciated. Note, fiberoptic internet service is not available in my area and I have heard that cable internet service has deteriorated.

Thank you.

I am new here - and I have the same -- it seems to be random and not tied to either volume or timeframe.. Every 2 min or so I'll get like 10 seconds of crackling -  it's not clipping - that's a different sound entirely .  hope someone here has a cllue!

Can you tell me what amount of latency is reported from your audio interface during the audio gear setup in the JK client?
