I've noticed this, too. The static sound direction used to only be with the thunder clap sounds, but now it appears to be every sound is static while moving. It really makes it impossible to turn your character around to help pin-point the location of zombie or gunshot sounds.

I really hope this is a bug that can be addressed. Accurate Sight and Sounds are extremely important to survival.

I second this (third this? lol) as it is still in effect in 0.50 experimental servers.

For me the sounds in the game need a massive bug fix tbh, the ghost sounds and this static direction bug has been in effect for a long time now...

Hi everyone,
thank you for your feedback!
We were not able to reproduce this specific issue with most sounds but our sound department is aware of a variety of issues which could have been the cause.
Rest assured this is being worked on, but might take some time to be fixed completely.
Thank you for your patience,
