Fixes for Community-Reported Bugs

  • WG-58892 Fixed: Imprecision with the panning of mono sounds with non-zero spread and non-zero focus to the back of the listener.
  • WG-60199 Fixed: Possible crash on connection when using any plug-in that takes a string as a parameter, for example, the Recorder plug-in.
  • WG-60972 Fixed: (Spatial Audio) Panning issues while moving across portals.
  • WG-61812 Fixed: (Spatial Audio) Room transmission loss is always applied when the Listener and Emitter are separated by an open portal and any other geometry.

  • WG-61907 Fixed: Crash when geometries contain invalid triangles.
  • WG-62393 Fixed: Stereo Delay Effect plug-in does not apply dry gain to height channels.
  • WG-62540 Fixed: Wwise could crash when playing a continuous Blend Container triggered by a Random Container using a delay, and with a sound instance limit.
