When the compression type is mp2 and the destination path is on a network drive.
I can build fine when the compression type is mp3, regardless of the drive location. There is no problem when the destination path is a local drive, regardless of the compression type. The problem arises only when the both criteria are met.
I’m guessing that, the mp2 encoding algorithm used in FMOD designer has a nasty habit of writing files without buffering, though I might be wrong.
Am I missing some easy solution, or should I just use a local drive for output and let a post-build command to copy the result to the network drive?

This issue is due to the mp2 encoder creating temporary files during the encoding process. The temporary files are created in a .fsbcache directory in the build directory. Thus, when the build directory is a network location, the encoding process is slow.
We are planning to add the ability to specify a "temporary files" directory in Designer, so you would be able to set that to a local directory and avoid this issue. Until this feature is added, I recommend you use a local drive for output and use post-build commands to copy the result to the network drive.
