Sound laggs after skill spamming

  • Hello Blizzard, hello demonslayer.

    It's been a while since I played diablo, but with the new season, I wanted to give it a try.

    After the early 64-Bit chaos, it works quite well.
    But there is still a problem:

    After spamming the Blessed Hammer with my Crusader (haven't tried it with other characters) the sound lags really heavy because of the much hits.

    Here can you hear it really well.

    Many sounds are not played at all or are only played after a few seconds.

    Am I the only one with the problem?
    Is there a solution?

    What I tried:
    I changed the sound channels up and down.

    If It's necessary, here my specs:

    OS: Windows 8.1 64bit
    CPU: Intel i7-4790 @ 3,60 Ghz
    RAM: 16 GB
    GPU: Geforce GTX 970

    I really hope you can help me.

    In addition, go into your in-game options and under the sound options, what is you Sound Channels option currently set to?

  • ShattixX,

    Your current sound driver is from 2013. Let's get that up to date to see if that helps any.

    Here's a link where that driver can be found: Realtek sound driver

    Once there, download the second one down the list. It should be labeled 64bits Vista, Windows7, Windows8, Windows8.1, Windows10 Driver only (Executable file).

    If updating the driver doesn't help, try lower the sound channel from medium to low.
