It's just sound everything else seems OK.
My guess would be that either that the sound is not emulated well for the game in the 0.185 version of MAME, or it needs a CHD that is not downloading.
If you are having a software problem be it front end, Windows, or want to try RetroArch and LauchBox but need help feel free to contact me. Post on the forum, PM here, or on Discord. I will be more then happy to do my best to get you sorted.

You can try changing this-
c:\mame\ini2p\mame.ini
Set triplebuffer to 1 (way near the bottom).

It will buffer frames, which may help with the audio sync. There may be adverse affects with other mame games though, depending on your monitor setup, but you can always change it back if it doesn't seem to help.
It's dangerous to go alone! Take this. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BuFVQ7HCQAAbgpz.jpg

The only MAME game that I noticed sound isssues is Q*Bert. It is nothing like the original and can mess up quite a bit.
Otherwise everything sounds good, but then I have played mostly classic games. The few newer games I played were unplayable. Jambo Safari was a mess. Soul Calibur worked but was so choppy. Will have to try the Dreamcast version.

Did you resolve your Q*Bert on the Arcade?

Ok.

What type of controller do you have?
Is wi fi , Bluetooth, or USB?

Try this, before playing an arcade game. Configure your controller for Arcade. Might be a conflict with input or cfg issue.
