The DirectSound driver has been glitch-prone for a while, so it has removed and replaced with a WaveOut driver. WaveOut is the most basic Windows method for outputting sound, and has used the same output path as DirectSound since Windows Vista. There are only small differences between the two, but the main one is that WaveOut doesn't loop by default, which means we can use a push API and have Dynamic Rate Control. XAudio2 is still available and recommended if your system supports it.
There is still a big flaw with Snes9x 1.59.2, the music to some Snes games suffer from cracking static sounds as seen with DKC2 Diddy's Kong Quest level "Hornet Hole" and Final Fantasy 3.

This problem needs to be fixed.
