I encounter the incredibly loud screeching sound on several occasions and now figure that most occurences of are likely in the top ten most common situations. I want to know about the most common causes of this problem to help me with debugging my games.

It can help me in the future greatly if I know the top causes of this problem.

Can you upload the sound file in question here? (Use Dropbox/Google Drive or similar so the file isn’t modified in any way.)

Is the sound 8-bit or 16-bit? What is its format (WAV, OGG)? Is it Mono or Stereo?

Also, are you using AudioStreamPlayer or AudioStreamPlayer2D/3D to play it?

I used AudioStreamPlayer

Also, I keep encountering sudden muting possibly linked to changing scenes or pausing the scenetree
