To increase precision and performance, decrease your audio device's sampling rate. Right-click volume tray icon > "Playback devices" > Follow this image
If you're updating from an older version and feel that the audio output is mistimed or unimproved, you might need to go to the settings window to apply "reset audio settings..." and tweak it from there.
If it doesn't show on the desktop, try the following:
• Open Volume Mixer and check if Rainmeter's volume is unmuted
• In the skin's installer window, check the box "Load included skins"
• In the skin's settings window, set the skin to use a different audio device
• Disable external software with sound processing and effects such as MSI Nahimic
"dgrace" - AudioLevel plugin
"HiTBiT-PA" - Color picker from Desktop VU-Meter 3
I like it, but beware it used alot of CPU. Before i use this skin, i look up in my task manager, and it says that rainmeter is using 5% of CPU. But after i load the skin, with 0 Resolution (Because i dont want it to visualize the audio i was playing, which means that the rain just move constantly) with a constant of 30 (The speed of the rain falling down without any audio playing) my task manager says that rainmeter is using 30% of CPU. Which is alot from 5 to 30 if you think about it.
Note: If you are having trouble with Number of Raindrops: -1, try right click the settings and press Edit Variables. Change the number in Bands. That should do the trick.
