AMD adrenaline 18.1.1 Relive have audio corruption

Hi there AMD.
I'm very disappointed with your work.
I do use Relive a lot to record and I do updated to the your lates WHQL drivers (18.1.1) from 17.12.1.
I've recorded games like shadowgrounds and FEAR, and I noticed there is a very very noticable audio corruption in videos recorded with the 18.1.1 drivers.
It ruined my entire video that I've recorded during the entire day, this was suppose to be a small bump on the drivers, it wasn't suppose to destroy Relive.
Just a big suggestion if you are going to update APIs and stuff like that in your drivers, please leave it be for the big feature updates or branch updates.
How the hell did you destroyed relive with an update to your drivers with the same branch version?

An example how the audio corruption with the 18.1.1 looks like:

Reverting back to 17.12.1 solved the problem.
I even tried to re-update again using DDU before installing, and the problem still exist, so the only solution is to roll back to the 17.12.1.
My system:

AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3.6GHZ


Asus M4A785TD-M EVO
Gigabyte HD 7850 2GB OCCorsair TX-650W
Windows 10 PRO 64 bits

I have the same issue, when recording and when streaming.

AMD graphics drivers are in fact "Fixes", Every driver comes with a "Read Me" file...which lists all the fixes contained in the new driver and what graphics cards were affected. If you don't see your card or a fix to a problem YOU are having with Your card and a application....there is no need to install it. Notification of a new driver is not a command to install it.


There are users with all sorts of generations with this problem, this is not related to my card, it's related to all cards, it's a software problem inside relive.

Following that mentality of not installing if I didn't see something related to my card, I wouldn't install drivers for more than 4 years, since GCN 1.0 cards are not present on the changelogs for fixes or highlights for half-decade, altough each branch there is improvements in performance, and stuff fixed.

So I will ignore your recommendation, since I don't think it's a good ideia.

I'm reporting the problem here and did reported on AMD Submit forms, so I'm being usefull by reporting this to the team so it can get fixed and to get people aware of the problem.
Making damage control on AMD forums by a user like your reputation don't really fit you well, when we can already see that multiple users confirm such problems.
Problems are made to report and get fixed not to hide them and attack who reports it!

I had the same problem with ReLive 18.1.1, searched for several days, wasted almost 10 hours recording waste-files, invested around 20-25 hours testing, re-configuring all my audio devices and settings, uninstalling all different audio drivers and tools, reinstalling them, until i came to the conclusion it might occurred the first time after updating to 18.1.1. The step back to 17.12.1 solved the problem immediately.
