    Default Loud pitches of sound since update

    Has anyone here experienced sound pitches of water in the character select screen? Or any other sounds suddenly comin out loud in the game for brief seconds?

    The best way to descbribe is, in the character select screen, I hear the background music theme, and sometimes I can hear a very loud glimpse of water, I believe from the water in the scenery where our character is, only for a sec or two.

    This started to happen only after last update 14.1 few days ago.

    Also experiencing this issue, you're not alone. Also, if I drop a firewall and leave the immediate area of that firewall, I get popping sounds every time something gets ticked by the firewall. So yeah, since U14.1 there are sound issues. Not surprising really, fix stuff but break more stuff seems to be par for course.

    Same issues on my end as well.

    I really liked the new music on the character select and character creation screens. I would sit there and listen to them before logging in. But I can't do that anymore because of the annoying sound glitches.

    I read the release notes of the last update and apparently they added new sounds into the background, I think? They must not be getting along with the rest of the game's sounds. Maybe it has something to do with the game not having enough audio channels to have them all play at once so they're battling with each other? I woudn't know.

    Yes. I get this one, also. It is severe, and clearly a bug.

    They are clipped truncated repeater crossbow noises.

    I was able to sample the noise and re-stretch it out with clipped peak restoration applied in some audio editing software, and its the repeater sound each time a bolt fires, clipped and truncated.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    How the hell did those get in there?

    In any case, I'm experiencing it as well.

    Yup - Me too - Didn't flag it as Water myself OR as Repeater X-Bow - Tbh it's far too short a sound to tell {for me} but it is constant on the character select screen - A gluck, glick, glick, glick, glick etc,. etc,. etc.
    Until I load into the game proper.

    I get no music whatsoever on my character select screen since the update - Just this constant glick, glick, glick etc. etc.

    Please Devs - Fix this.

    Actually, it's not any one particular sound (i.e. waterfall or arti repeater)... it's varying sounds that appear to get stuck in the sound buffer.

    At first I thought it was a pop or crackle with my onboard soundcard being to blame. after a while, I realized it was just some random sound playing for a brief moment VERY loudly.

    I recorded about 10 minutes of audio and dropped it into Audacity, and yep - it's varying sounds.

    Interesting - I get the new music there. I get NO sound whatsoever in the cutscene that results from Spinner of Shadows, tho. Never have heard that scene.

    Same problems here, wouldn't mind if it was just the character screen but the ones in game are annoying.

    It's mentioned in the Latest Lam release notes.

    Can we at least be told what channel Kobold voices are on? I have evrything but basic sound turned off (Music and DM off, the rest turned down a LOT) and they still come in crystal clear *no pun intended* and LOUD as all get out.

    Looks like this has stopped for me, but I'd like to lobby for separation of the "cha ching" sound from the UI category.

    I had to turn down UI audio do to the _MASSIVE DING_ sound effect. Now when I sell stuff, I get no cha-ching.

    Not a major issue, but if someone can move that over into like environmental effect, that'd be an improvement.
