It has come to our attention that a recent update to Sonic Studio 3 has been causing industry wide crashes with games that use the audio engine Wwise. Because EVE Online leverages Wwise we have also noticed a trend of EVE Online clients crashing at start up which began around July 7th, 2021. After investigating we have determined that these crashes are due to a missing AudioDevProps2.dll that the newest version of Sonic Studio 3 uses.
If you have experienced problems starting the EVE Online client, use Sonic Studio 3 and have recently had an update to it applied on July 7th, 2021 or later then we recommend uninstalling Sonic Studio 3 until this issue has been resolved.
