   - Replace the second digit with your audio number. For instance, if it is ''audio.device=0,3'', then according to our example it would be ''audio.device=0,4''. The following text doesn't particularly matter, that's just the label it shows in EmulationStation.   - Replace the second digit with your audio number.

 +===== How do I diagnose my audio cutting out? =====
 +
 +While running a game, SSH into Batocera and run ''%%pw-top%%''.

Look at the ''ERR'' column, if both are increasing this indicates an issue with underrun audio frames. This can be solved via increasing the audio latency, choosing a more optimized audio backend or reducing the overall CPU usage.
