  • WG-61508 Fixed: SoundBank metadata Max attenuation for Events does not take Post Event actions into account.
  • WG-61597 Fixed: Streaming media can be stopped if inspected by the garbage collector at the wrong time. Added more detailed logs to the AkUnrealIOHook.
  • WG-61634 Fixed: Crash when inspecting an RTPC or State from the Multi Editor or the default plug-in property list.
  • WG-61655 Fixed: Calling AK::SoundEngine::ReplaceOutput with an Audio Device ShareSet of 0 can cause audio loss if the old output Audio Device is connected to multiple audio busses.

  • WG-61727 Fixed: A nested Music Switch Container doesn't switch to the correct child when the parent Switch Container has an active Transition with a positive Offset.
  • WG-61850 Fixed: (Spatial Audio) Any emitter using diffraction can become inaudible when the listener position overlaps a portal.

  • WG-62149 Fixed: Imported SoundBank files can be linked with the wrong WwiseAddressableSoundbank if the former's name is a substring of the latter.
  • WG-62150 Fixed: Using S-Curve Interpolation on RTPC curves provides values outside the specified range in some cases. For example, it might generate negative values for Spread or LPF/HPF factors when the curve should stop at 0.
  • WG-62177 Fixed: Setting a bus configuration to Same as passthrough mix when 3D Audio is available but passthrough is not available sets the bus configuration to Audio Objects instead of setting it to the Audio Device's main mix.
  • WG-62358 Fixed: Crash due to stack overflow originating from CAkVPL3dMixable::GetVolumes in some scenarios.
  • WG-62383 Fixed: File Packager takes a long time to complete when there are many excluded memory files in a single SoundBank.
