    Is it a game boy emulator we are talking about? Try fooling around with the frame skip, that could be what's causing it.

    it is a game boy advanced emulator
    i already tried changing the frameskip
    i tried all the settings
    i tried some other gba emulators (john's gba, gbaoid) and their setting
    but its the same or either worse

    a few moths ago i had uninstalled the same version of myboy!. today i reinstalled it and now laggy sound :(

    This may seem like a silly question, but we are trying to pin point the problem here, so let me ask. When you had it before the sound was fine?

    Don't worry about it, just wanted to clarify. Are you using the same Roms as before? They could have become corrupted when you uninstalled the emu the first time!

    Not really any help to this problem, but my son loves SNES emulator. I would try different emulators to see if problem is with yours, or if a deeper problem is going on.

    Try to uninstall it again, and then go through the phone via your PC and make sure nothing is left, maybe some data from the first time is causing a conflict. Delete anything you find and try installing it again.

    tried but that didnt work

    i dont think there's any problem with roms and im not sure whether it is being caused by emulators as i have tried multiple gba emulators

    but it cant be a problem with my phone as i had not installed or deleted anything and i dont remember changing any related setting within the period the gba emulator was absent and also my phone is able to play songs or audio from other (non emulator) games completely fine

    I have GBAoid and MyBoy and none have choppy sound. I would tell you where I got my roms but it's piracy, and some I have from original.

    It shouldn't be a bad game ROM causing choppy sound in an emulator. Usually if a ROM is corrupted or incomplete or whatever, it just won't work. Choppy sound can be caused by certain games though if the emulator is not upto it and/or is running on under powered hardware, or possibly there's something else running in the background slowing the thing down, like say Facebook or an IM or VOIP app.

    i really dont know. i just kept redoing things you were suggesting and trying to experiment with many games and then when i returned to pokemon firered (the only game i was wanted to correctly play from the beggining)
    things were better than before

    but its not perfect as although the sound is less choppy the graphics seem to lag occasionaly

    i wish i could make it as perfect as before but i am satisfied :)

    I had the same issue but with another emulator, I worked out how to solve that but not 100 percent sure if it will be the same on all emulators. The problem of pokemon is we intend to play that for a super long emulator session which causing the issue. Simply save through the actual game but not emulator, restart app, then start a new session, load the actual gba save (but not emulator save), now you should solve it :)
