I seem to remember seeing a fix for this a while back but can't seem to find it now.

My sound effects, including the GUI screen are distorted for some reason. The music is fine though. Anyone had this issue and remember seeing a fix for it? All other games work fine.

Try changing UseDirectSound or increasing Latency (assuming you use Galaxy).

I think I fixed this for 7Bullets and also managed to increase the sound quality with the following: under Galaxy.GalaxyAudioSubsystem change
Latency=72
OutputRate=48000Hz
EffectsChannels=32

While the sound system is pretty light I do think it's default latency of 40 is too low when it comes to running the game with anything other than default renderers. The increased load, while not noticeable on a modern pc, is enough to cause problems for the audio system.

I wasn't able to make all of those changes, maybe due to my on board soundcard, but changing the ones I was able to seems to have fixed it for now, thanks!
