Discord audio cutting out when application is opened and running

hello, I have a few problems with my system currently but ill start with this one, when I’m in a discord call the output audio will cut out constantly, but its like a crackling sound where it will cut out for a split second then come back for a split second. this only happens when another application is open though, from dying light to a browser will cause this issue. this used to happen a bit but only when a hard to run game is loading up but once its done loading its completely fine, the only thing that changed was a system update and deleting kernel 4.14, i am running manjaro on kernel 5.19. any help is greatly appreciated. thanks.
