Known Issues

Symptom 1

After installing this update, certain users are reporting that audio in some games sounds little different. It is either quieter or plays contrasting music that expected. Therefore, at the request of a few of Microsoft’s audio partners, the team implemented a compatibility modification. It will thus enable certain games to query support and provide multi-channel audio.

But, depending on customers feedback, the team will revert this small change. It is because some games and devices fail to render multi-channel audio as they are always habituated with. This will eventually result in games making different sounds are familiar to and may have missing channels.

To deal with the issue, launch settings in the impacted game. Then, turn off multi-channel audio. If this option is not available, you can search for a third-party audio device in Control Panel. Once you get it, disable multi-channel audio or Virtual Surround Sound, only if these options are available.

However, the team is working on a resolution and hope to produce a solution in late September.
