Horrific Buzzing sound

So, I've looked in older threads, and I'm trying to work out why this happens. I'm trying to get LBA2 running in DOSBox-X, which has a number of extra features that makes playing the first and second game much more enjoyable. However, for whatever reason, which I assume is sound related, the game has this ungodly buzzing noise it makes in the menus.

In game the sound is fine, LBA1 doesn't have this issue however it has some other sound issues I'm trying to figure out, but I might make a separate thread for that later. The Steam version of the game uses a vastly out-dated version of DOSBox, and sadly you can't just drop DOSBox-X over DOSBox and call it good. I can't seem to figure out how they got it to run without this problem, and with the W to interact key working ontop of that. Does anyone have an idea of what I'm missing here?

As it turns out, it was me that was the dumb one, my BIN/CUE had a corrupted audio track that was the source of the buzzing Probably a bad read, on the other hand, game looks amazing with DOSBox-X on a 1440p screen.

Check my thread over in LBA General, I have a lot I've been working on for the second game and I'm debating on doing something with the first game or not.
