[Bug/Sound] Final Fantasy X : Voice problems
Hello dear menbre, moderator, administrator and especially developers of PCSX2.

I have a minor problem with FFX, not very common on forums apparently.
These are the voices of peronnages during the dialogue stage, their voices are sometimes bad, as this frequency Sample Rate is low. Then after that comes in good quality. And sometimes it again.

I Selected part or you can hear this bug.

I'll try to make a comparison between the PS2 version and the version of emulator
sounds 100% normal to me.
I can clearly notice the difference. I don't know if that's normal or not in the english dub, but those changes seem very random. It isn't like "high polygon models = good sound, low polygon models = bad sound".

looks like a bad surround sound management. as if some voices werent coming out from the right speaker.
@OP : do you have the same problem if you set SPU2-x config to surround 5.1 or quadraphonic ?

I notice it as well, my ears are very sensitive, there are slight inconsistencies, not sure what's causes it.
