RIFF VR FAQ
I can’t hear any audio.
Check your Windows (PC) Audio Setting for playback devices through the Windows control panel. Sometimes it needs not just the Vive or Rift to be enabled, but another device to be disabled.
The game can’t hear my voice when I grab the microphone.

I hear some music and sounds (in the Main Menu or the Tutorial), but the drums and guitar aren’t making any sound and the music doesn’t playback.
This is usually the result of what we call a hot swap where you changed audio devices while the game is running. You need to restart RIFF VR with the audio settings you want before you start playing.
The game lags.
Perhaps your computer is below our recommended requirements. We recommend the following:

My guitar pick or drumsticks are respawning while I'm playing.
Most likely, you are accidentally touching the grip button. It happens to our programmers a lot. That's why you can lock it on the control panel.
I can't play sitting down.
If you are playing the guitar or vocals, you will have to reach up to grab respectively the pick or the microphone. If you are playing the drums, you can modify the drums' height using the mixer panel which is on your right when spawning in front of an instrument.
