Basically, anytime I listen to music or play anything with audio for more than at least 10 minutes, the memory usage for this spikes up rapidly, and only goes down when there's no audio playing. audiodg.exe is the name, and I was having this issue for about a month now, does anyone know how to fix it? I have tried removing the "extra sound enhancement" things, and that didn't work. I also have this many audio ports, which might be something, but idk exactly. Please let me know if you have advice or know how to fix!

Update: I finally found the issue.

The issue relies with Razer 8.1 Spatial Audio. How did I find this out? I uninstalled it and the memory usage quite literally dropped to 0% IMMEDIATELY. This is also suspected because it uses "special effects" in a way, non-stop which is how it gains the spatial audio, and the only minimal fix to it would be taskkilling it and restarting it every single time. But even that wouldn't help fix it, so I suggest if you're having the same issue just to uninstall it until further notice.

Maybe there is a driver update which fixes the issue.
