Bug Fixes

  • WG-61540 Fixed: Crash in AkDevice::BaseCaptureCallbackStruct::ConvertForCapture when trying to use ref RegisterCaptureCallback with 5th-order ambisonic output. Note that capturing 4th-order or 5th-order ambisonic output still outputs only 3rd-order FuMa-encoded ambisonics.
  • WG-61974 Fixed: Voice Inspector sometimes fails to display attenuation contributions when scrubbing the timeline.
  • WG-63879 Fixed: Inaccurate data in Voice Inspector's Contribution List when dragging the timeline cursor at a resolution smaller than the audio frame.
  • WG-63880 Fixed: Voice Inspector doesn't snap to proper time when moving time cursor backwards with the timeline zoomed in.
  • WG-63882 Fixed: Crash in AkPath.cpp when terminating engine in low-memory conditions
  • WG-63956 Fixed: Possible crash while loading SoundBank Init.bnk under low memory conditions.
  • WG-64172 Fixed: Crash in AK::SoundEngine::Term when streamed sounds with the 3D User positioning option are playing at termination time.
  • WG-64365 Fixed: Crashes or other errors occur in low-memory situations during playback of Random Containers or Music Playlists set to Random Continuous or Random Step.
  • WG-64503 Fixed: (Mac Authoring) WwiseConsole incorrectly handles UNIX absolute paths.
  • WG-64504 Fixed: Music Clip property curves are not deleted when the corresponding Work Unit is unloaded.

  • WG-64839 Fixed: Cannot build Authoring plug-ins without MFC.
  • WG-64957 Fixed: Media ID validation is done slightly too late during project load. This only impacts local playback in Wwise Authoring.

Fixes for Community-Reported Bugs
