Default Tomb Raider PS1\emulator slowdown

Hi TRF,
I've been experimenting with ways to get Tomb Raider 3 looking it's best and it seems that the NTSC PS1 version is more or less the definitive version of the game. It has the lots of graphical effects and sound effects that are missing in the PC port of the game. Unless someone can port these effects to the PC version, I guess its best to play the Playstation version on an emulator in high resolution.

There is one major flaw with the PS1 version (other than the save crystals, which you can replace with save states) and that is the framerate often drops unbearably low in open areas which is enough to stop me playing the PS1 version outight. However, the emulator epsxe has an overclocking feature which fixes framerate issues in many games but in Tomb Raider 3's case, it speeds up the game way too much. I found a way to limit the framerate to 30fps and it works very well but it now there is a glitch where the sound stutters a lot.

so my question to those who may know some stuff about PS1 emulators:
Is it possible to remove the frame drops from the Tomb Raider games on PS1 and if its possible, how do you do it?

It would be helpful if you can post your configuration of both. (pics)
