I am new to this forum and mac osx.... but just wanted to share info.
vmware workstation on windows:
config(host pc): core i5, 4gb ram, win 7 64 bit
mountain lion audio is lagging, choppy....(clicking sound more in bass frequencies)
tried everything ensonique etc.. nothing worked....
Tried on another laptop: dell inspiron 15
core i3 4th gen 4010u 1.7ghz, 4gb ram(expanding to 8 gb), haswell series,
running ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit(Legacy mode.. NOT UEFI), vmware workstation 10, osx ML vmware image used... 150 gb, 3 gb ram, running under vmware 8.x compatibility(otherwise keyboard does not work), installed vmware tools(1366x768) but only 32 mb but graphics is just ok.
installed ensonique driver... edited the vmx file.
device is "hdaudio" not "es1371" , surprisingly worked in both modes. Guess es1371 uses virtual device hence the lag due to timing issues. filename changed to "front: card=PCH,DEV=0" taken output from the command aplay -L. Now audio is clean vlc tested all bit rates. going to try Logic Pro X finally...
