    Delay audio for specific device

    My personal opinion is that adding a delay to the computer audio is not a precise
    solution, for two reasons :

    • There is no way that you can measure exactly the required delay
    • Such a delay will be confusing for everyday work with the computer.

    I suggest instead using a software product that specializes in mixing audio
    and can solve the delay problem without introducing new problems.

    An example product is the free
    VB-Audio VoiceMeeter Banana.

    VoiceMeeter Banana User Manual
    describes how to add an action via MACRO Buttons (page 29):

    One of the programmable actions does a delay on the strip numbered i :

    I have no experience with the product, but I believe that you could use
    this feature to introduce an audio delay.

    After running the troubleshooter, try to install the audio drivers from the manufacturer website and check if it helps:

    Device manager.

    2) Select Audio input and output.

    3) Right click on driver and select update driver software.

    4) Next follow the instructions to install it.

    If the issue still persists, the rollback the driver and check the issue.

    To rollback:

      Driver tab.

    • Now select Rollback driver.
