Broken sound in recent builds
A while back, like two to three months ago, a change happened that "broke" the sound. It's hard to describe, like when you get a new headphone and the treble is so strong that it hurts your ears. It's not that extreme and more subtle, but I can definitely feel pressure from the highs being too high and had to downgrade to an older version due to the strain on my ears. It's most noticeable on the sounds for shortblade equip and restoration cast, also on doors and underwater but even the clicks in the menu are different, though hard to notice. Might have something to do with 3D sound.
I've went through the old nightlies at https://www.lysator.liu.se/~ace/OpenMW/nightlies/?sort=modified and found that the one from 2020-03-25 still sounds correct, while everything after that, including the 0.46 release, has the aforementioned problem.
Surprised I haven't found anything about this on the forums or here, as this makes all recent versions practically unplayable for me. Maybe related to soft-/hardware? I'm on Windows.
