    Since the last update, I have a small sound issue. It is not a problem when actually racing but when watching other drivers in practice or qualifying in multiplayer, some cars sound fine but others have a very muted (muffled) sound. It does not appear to be car dependant, two cars of the same type, one can sound fine, another muted. Any ideas.

    Can I suggest you to check in your soundcard advanced settings (drivers sotfware interface, not windows) if you have one of these two options?

    If yes, you can try to tick or untick them until the sound issues disappear.
    It happens to me sometimes when I plug or unplug my headphones in the onboard soundcard (Realtek here).

    This is most likely caused by some bad audio drivers coupled with some windows 10 updates.
    Not much we can do about it sadly, but at least there is a turn around.

    Of course, I'm using an external sound card most of the time, but sometimes I need to check how the game sounds through the
    common onboard devices, and this problem happens almost every time.

    Ok thanks Anthony, will try that later if I can figure out how too! Not that clever on the technical side I'm afraid. Anyway if I cannot fix it, it is not really a big problem as it does not affect the actual racing
