    Playback Buffer (ms)
    This option lets you adjust the size of the Direct sound playback buffer, in milliseconds.
    If the playback buffer is too small, playback may
    skip, stutter, or be distorted, due to buffer underrun.
    Increasing the buffer size makes underrun less likely, at the cost of increased latency, e.g.
    when starting or stopping playback or setting the audio position (the default 450 as set will do ok).
    Mixer Buffer The default 3 is ok (to set higher depends on the computer cpu speed).
    Input Buffer
    When referring to computer memory, the input buffer is a location that holds all incoming information,
    before it continues to the CPU for processing.
