Lag/stuttering in every game - Tanuki - 01-15-2020

I just installed retrorangepi on my new retrostone 2. It boots up fine, audio in the emulationstation works fine, but when I go into any game on any system, it lags. At first I thought it was just audio stuttering but I think it may be the whole thing. 

Also I saw in the notes that configuration should be set up automatically but it wasn't! 

Any help with the lag/audio issues ? 

Thanks!

Working now to improve audio, can you list games tested so we can tweak to optimal settings?

Tetris, pokemon (GB)
Advance wars (GBA)

Super Mario Brothers, the includes NES game thing
Mario Brothers

for genesis:
Sonic the Hedgehog
Altered Beast

Also the included:
Quake, Doom

..pretty much everything I've tried and you can hear the sound chop even if you don't give any game inputs and just listen.

An observation, maybe not related but seems like it could be - during preload when you can see the cmdline, there is a message scrolling over and over like when I fall asleep on my keyboard. The error is:

ALSA lb pcm.c:8306: (snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred

Don't know if you can trust the Retroarch FPS counter but it averages under 50 on anything I try to play.
