Audio problems on Pixelbook running Ubuntu 16.04

Everything is running smooth as can be and yet audio playback will not function while Insync is actively syncing. If I pause the synchronization and restart the video conference, audio stream, youtube, etc. - everything works just fine. It is 100% predictable now so thought I would ask for some help.

Hi there, can you send in your logs and the link to this post to so we can check this out?
