Here is my configuration data. I have close jamesDSP and volume is ok. Should I just remove jamesDSP?

JamesDSP seems to reliably cause problems for people. Maybe it should just be removed or an opt-in feature with a warning

If you are not going to use it, go ahead and uninstall it. @UltraBlack is right, it has been causing issues for people recently.

This recent commit should change future ISOs to have JamesDSP not set to auto-start (people who want it to auto-start can set that up on their own). Hopefully that will help cut back on out-of-the-box audio troubleshooting.
