I've come to get my meat
I've experienced this as well, and have also encountered something similar (though most likely unrelated) on Windows 7. I've found that by setting the environment variable SDL_AUDIODRIVER to "winmm", it clears it up. Here's a list of possible values, and I believe that "wasapi" is available too under newer SDL2 versions, along with "xaudio2". If we can find a suitable audio backend that works every time on W10, we can add it to our ongoing list of patches. I have a feeling that Windows is opting for Xaudio2 in these instances while SDL2 is attempting to use DirectSound, to no avail.
