    So, I bought Guitar Hero III for the PC (it is awesome) and I was getting some crackling noises. On RedOctane's website the say to put the PCI latency timer to 32, while I usually kept mine at 64. It worked, but what does this do exactly?

    Thats very strange, 9\10 times reducing PCI latency increases the chance of getting crackling, and effects stability. Must be something to do with how guitar hero was programmed - possibly to reduce sound lag.
