hte_ on IRC reports that using WASAPI on his MacBookPro using Bootcamp+Win8 makes his laptop lag:

21:51 < hte_> Hello people, i have a question. I'm running mumble in windows 8 (macbook pro with bootcamp), when i try to play something with
mumble on it makes the game and especially the mouse lag. I was told i have to change my sound driver/system from WASAPI ->
DirectSound but for some reason the selection is gray and does not let me do that. Even though DirectSound works fine with
Teamspeak. Can anyone help me out?

I suggested to try WinXP compatibility mode to use DirectSound, and that seemed to fix it:

22:14 < hte_> mkrautz: Win XP compatibility mode seemed to fix the problem. It's not entirely reliable result since this time we had much less
people on the channel.
