    I am running Mojave 10.14 and a VM with Windows 10 with the lates updates and Parallels Desktop Pro 14 with the latest updates as well.
    When listening to music on the Win VM and then opening apps on macOS, crackling and popping sounds briefly appear.
    I have tried lots of troubleshooting steps together with Parallels support which include re-installing Parallels, re-installing the Parallels Toolbox and also checking the sound settings on both macOS and the VM.

    Has anyone experienced a similar issue and fixed it? Support have had the ticket open since January with no success.

    I am using an iMac 2017 with these specs:
    Intel Core i5 3.4 GHz
    Memory: 32 GB
    1TB SSD

    Please note that the issue occurs regardless of which Windows player is being used e.g. iTunes, Spotify, Chrome

    Hi @JaumeV, can you please reinstall Parallels Tools(Action -> Reinstall Parallels Tools) to fix the issue? If the issue persists, could you please go to the Help menu of Parallels Desktop application and send us the technical data report via Send Technical Data... menu item? Then, post the number here.

    Hi @PaulChris@Parallels, yes, the issues were ocurring all the way from the very start of getting Parallels with version 13 and all its updates in both High Sierra and Mojave. I then also updated to the Parallels Pro version when 14 came out and same exact issue occurs when opening Mac apps. I installed my 13 license on a MacBook Pro and the issue does not happen there. So it seems to be something to do with the iMac Parallels Toolbox drivers.
