Redmi 4 Prime (markw), no audio from apps besides Chrome/Youtube, loud clicking

I get no audio while trying to play music off the device’s memory or an SD card. I’ve tried the stock player, multiple alternative players, Google Play Music, all play nothing but instead click every 5-20 seconds or less, the “clicking” is short and really loud and audible. The track time also behaves really weirdly, with skipping and sometimes staying at zero, making the entire player freeze up bad. I’ve tried Mokee multiple times and always had this bug. Currently on MK71.2-markw-180418-RELEASE. The ROM seems really nice, especially with frequent updates to obscure devices, but this just breaks everything for me. Is there no fix?

sorry I’m late…
