    I've noticed a hissing or whining sound when running (at least) Formula Ultimate, V10 and V12 cars. I don't hear it when I run shifter karts though. I adjusted the volumes and isolated it to the engine sounds. However, when I open the .wav files in the sounds folder, everything sounds normal. Anyone have any ideas? I've already made sure my audio settings in the config tool are correct and verified my files in Steam.

    Thanks!

    Hello there, it is known bug but so far we haven't been able to nail what exactly is causing it. It for sure is not issue with audio files.

    When you say you isolated it to engine sounds, can you confirm/describe how you did so?

    Can you reproduce this bug at any time? What settings, how many AI cars, audio settings?

    Thank you!

    I isolated it to engine sounds using the volume sliders in-game.

    I've noticed it when racing both online and offline, with and without AI and I even noticed it with the Endurance mod I downloaded the other day. What do you want to know as far as audio settings? I'm using on-board audio with a Kraken headset.

    Isn't it the helicopter sound? It is from environment, not engine sounds, but that's what usually kept playing in the background on some Mod tracks for me.

    What audio output configuration (Config tool)?
    AudioPostFX level in game options? If you may, pls test different levels, does distortion occur. How many cars on track was there?

    It's not such distinctive sound. It's best described as very loud white noise.

    Stereo Headphones and Vsync/Enable DynHUD both unchecked. I've been trying to reproduce the problem, but haven't been able to yet. Funny, it's been going on a few weeks now, but it seems to be working because I posted here?

    Hehe. Thats somewhat my experience. You don't know would you laugh or cry.
    I never got to reproduce it, yet some team members experienced it too.
    Can you check your AudioPostFX ingame audio options setting? Perhaps if it was on "Full" maybe you lowered it when isolating to engine sounds (adjusting sliders)? Pls report what is current setting, as it turns on/off certain audio, well, post processing.

    Is this the same noise ? I am getting this with all cars in all races now but it seems to only happen when a lot of cars near me !

    Its quite piercing and annoying ! is this on my end or an AMS thing because ive never heard it before and ive only just came back to AMS after getting back into 2D racing . Full grid of cars per track unless i get a CTD then i reduce by 2 at a time till it loads !

    @2ndLastJedi Have you verified this happens with AMS content as well?
    This is probably something to do with that mod wav samples.

    I was just using the same content as Paul from RD on YouTube (MCR at Guapore) and its there but not as loud! I can get a clip if needed. It's happening only when lots of cars are near.

    Try to use AudioPostFX on "Low" setting, and disable the Reverb too, i have this same issue when i play with EEC GT3 Mod, and swap AudioPostFX to low and Reverb disabled, this help me a lot...
    Don't forget to say if is works for you, for me is work fine with this tweak.

    Well, in my case the easiest way to reproduce this "bug" is using the EEC GT3 Mod (i know, is a unnofficial content and the support is not avaliable, but in the official content the bug is very hard to reproduce.)
    With EEC GT3 Mod, start a race in the last position of the grid (with 20 or more cars). On the first turn the cars will be very closer with others, and the bug starts.
    (please, use any track with hard braking zone on the turn 1, in my tests i have lot of "audio bug" on the Monza T1) the cars will be very closer with others, and the bug starts.
    This tests are made with AudioPostFX in "full" and Reverb on "High", on the Audio Output config, i use the Stereo Headphones option.
