Static noise when using module-loopback but not with pw-loopback
latency_msec=20 seems to fix this
Version, Distribution, Desktop Environment:
- Manjaro unstable repos
- pipewire-git: 0.3.31.2.g5497d2d9-1

Description of Problem:
When loading the module-loopback module using pactl the desktop audio (firefox, discord, etc...) sometimes emits a little bit of noise. The noise disappears when using pw-loopback instead. I only seem to run into this issue when using my motherboard's audio (Gigabyte X470 Gaming 5). When using pactl and loading the module with the regular pulseaudio installed (instead of pipewire-pulse), everything works as expected.
This somehow doesn't affect the audio being looped back, in my case being my Nintendo Switch.
This could be an incompatibility with my mobo and pipewire-pulse's pactl?
Steps to Reproduce:
pactl load-module module-loopback latency_msec=1
Noise while listening to anything.
