Bring back PortAudio support on Windows #4770
PortAudio + Windows 10 x64 Testing. Hardware is Dell XPS 9333 13" Developer Edition. Sound card: Onboard Realtek High Definition Audio
Baseline comparison against SDL:
Side-note... the device selection is pretty unintuitive e.g. selecting recording devices for playback, etc. If PortAudio is re-enabled a new bug report should be opened for better playback device selection.
I get the same results with choppy playback and inappropriate device options. Note however that this is the same behaviour as in 1.1.3, and this PR doesn't attempt to change that - the idea was just to bring back the existing PortAudio backend for Windows again. It definitely needs some work and a new bug report is the way to go.
I tried and on my Windows 64 bits, MSI GP60 2QE Leopard, Realtek Audio Card, there is no way to use any settings of portaudio.
If I use windows WASAPI, when I open again lmms the settings window pop up like there is a problem, and if I click OK and get to lmms window, there is no sound.
I tried in Audacity and WASAPI seems to work properly, so I don't really understand what's going wrong.
