1/11/07 4.08.07 – Stable release update

    Use this to programmatically choose sound definition entries
    at runtime.
  • Event API – Added FMOD_EVENT_INFO.numplayinginstances and
    FMOD_EVENT_INFO.playinginstances. Use these to get a list of
    playing instances for a specific event. NOTE: You must initialise
    these members before calling Event::getInfo!
  • Event API – Added maxdistance scaling for events with custom rolloff. See
    Event::setPropertyByIndex and FMOD_EVENTPROPERTY_3D_MAXDISTANCE

  • Fixed logic with SoundGroups if System::setSoundGroup was called after a
    sound was played.

  • Fixed FMOD_DSP_LOWPASS_SIMPLE swapping lfe and rear left speaker around.
  • Fixed a bunch of broken links and outdated names in the API documentation
  • Fixed doppler calculation to give more correct results when the channel is
    moving away from the listener
  • Win32 Dsound – Fixed limited number of streams being able to be created using
  • Win32 – Fixed memory leak in OpenAL output mode.
  • Mac – added workaround for Digidesign drivers.
  • Mac – improved recording with Bluetooth devices.
  • PS2 – Fix multichannel FSB streams with more than 8 channels in them causing
    streamer to crash.
  • PS2/WII/PSP/GC/Xbox1 – Fix Channel::setInputChannelMix not working on
    multichannel streams using FMOD_HARDWARE.
  • Event API – Fix FMOD_EVENT_INFO::positionms drifting over time.
  • Event API – FMOD_EVENT_INFO::positionms now takes note of Event::setPitch.
  • Event API – Fixed wavebank file close callback being needlessly deferred.

  • Memory System – Changed mimumum malloc block size to 16 bytes instead of 64
    bytes to lower rounding overhead on smaller mallocs.

  • Event API – Input members have been added to FMOD_EVENT_INFO! You must
    initialise these members before calling Event::getInfo!

I made the jump from 4.08.05 (problem free) to 4.08.07.

With most mp3’s (or actually all i’ve tried), something strange happens after setPosition is used to seek in the song. The sound is full of jumps and "underwater-sounds" (sounds like when a mp3 is broken).

If i let the songs play from the beginning without calling setPosition, sound is perfectly normal. There was no problems with 4.08.05.

Same problem here, but not with all MP3; someone plays fine, someone seems to play 2 steps forward and 1 step backward.

Another problem found: realtimestitching example hangs on

result = system->playSound(FMOD_CHANNEL_FREE, sound, false, &channel);

Mac OS X 10.5 (Intel)

The upcomign relese should fix this, there was a performance change given to us by a developer which at first appearance looked ok but in fact broke some seeking behaviour.
