Distortion audible in the background with Youtube videos on Scarlett 2i4.
If you are filing this issue with a regular release please try master as it might already be fixed.
Version, Distribution, Desktop Environment:
pipewire-0.3.26-4.fc34.x86_64, Fedora 34, Gnome Shell
Description of Problem:
In some youtube videos, especially with some passages of classical music, there is audible distortion of the signal in the background which sounds pretty disturbing. I believe that it is especially terrible with quieter passages with some natural reverb, I am not able to notice it on louder passages, because the foreground music covers this. I have added a recording that could help you to identify, what I mean, because it is clear to me that this is something I could hardly measure. However, with 0.3.24 an 0.3.25, I did not have any such issues. I also tried listening to the same video on my iPad and there it was playing nicely and without any bad sounding artefacts.
I am using a USB Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 on 48000.
Always with this version.
Steps to Reproduce:
- This is the video I noticed it in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMLSwqAOzHo&t=223s. Especially in the first part when the oboe starts playing, it sounds like quiet distorted rambling (like timpani or something, but poorly recorded timpani) which I do not think is the case as it is a professional recording.
- I am also attaching a recording of the Firefox signal that I routed back into the system and captured.
Audible distortion in some pieces of music.
No such distortion present.
