OK, I can repeat your problem, so you have found a new bug.
All the sounds that comes with OpenCPN
, as well as all other sounds that I used, have a sampling rate of 22050.
Downloading and testing a few alarm
sounds from AUTHENTIC NAVY ALARM SOUNDS
I find that if the sampling rate is less, the sound is distorted or does not play at all. These files used to play with the old sound implementation, so this points to libportaudio.
Workaround for now -> use sound files with a sampling rate of 22050.
PS. Further test points more towards the the file-size than sampling-rates.
