New Audio Engine on PBE!

**UPDATES** **New Audio Engine Turned Off** - Thanks everyone for all the amazing feedback over the last few days, it has been extremely helpful. We have now deactivated the new audio engine and everything should be back to normal. As I mentioned below the new audio engine won't be going out with the new patch, so if you have any audio bugs after the latest PBE deploy please go ahead and post them in the regular [Bugs Section of the PBE Community Page](http://community.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/c/bugs). Thanks again for all the help and awesome feedback! **Extended Time on PBE** - We'll be leaving the New Audio Engine activated for a few more days so we can continue to gather more of your awesome feedback. **Voice Overs Missing** - It seems the most present issue so far is the missing Voices for champs and skins. While we work to try and fix this issue, we'd still love to hear your thoughts and opinions about everything else! Hey Summoners! For the next ~~two~~ few days we've turned on a new audio engine on the PBE. While we work on a plan to get the new engine out to all of you, we first wanted to see how you guys feel about the new audio engine. We've had to change a few parameters around, so some of your favorite champions might sound slightly different. Things may be louder or quieter, VO lines might overlap, or some sounds just straight up might not work. However, surround sound and stereo panning should be functioning now. If you find a sound that doesn't work, or if you want to leave feedback about the way things sound now, just leave a comment on this thread! We’ll be actively monitoring it and replying to your questions and concerns. Please let us know what equipment you’re using for audio (Stereo headphones vs. 5.1 surround sound speakers, Sound Blast Zx vs. Realtek HD Audio) so we can help narrow down the cause of the issues. If you’re unsure how to get your system info, here’s a handy guide for [PC](https://support.leagueoflegends.com/entries/20100477-What-is-DxDiag-) and one for [Mac](https://support.leagueoflegends.com/entries/23242306-Mac-Obtaining-a-System-Report). **Why are we changing audio engines?** We’re looking to create a more immersive and engaging in-game League of Legends audio experience, and this new engine will allow us to do a lot of cool things in the future. **When will this be going out?** The new audio engine won’t be going out with the next patch, but we will be working to hopefully bring it to you guys and girls sometime in 2014.
