Platform-specific information can be found here:

For earlier versions, please refer to Previous Release Notes.

Behavior Changes

  • WG-56439 Spatial Audio: The emitter position and virtual position is now updated smoothly in between path updates. This reduces 'stepping' artifacts that can be heard when using larger distance thresholds.

Performance Changes

  • WG-58649 Adjusted AkArray::Copy to avoid destroying the underlying memory if not necessary, slightly reducing the number of memory allocations and frees in the sound engine.

Bug Fixes

  • WG-55462 Fixed: Command file created in Keyboard Shortcuts and Commands are greyed out on Mac.
  • WG-56281 Fixed: Possible crash when loading/unloading geometries in the presence of rooms and portals.
