Distorted audio after video export

Hello,

First of all thanks for this amazing program! I made a promotional video for on YouTube for my soon to be released music on our new label.
I am using the Spectrum feature to create a visual EQ on top of our label logo.

However I have an issue with the audio after exporting the video.

After about 5:20 into the video the audio starts to sound choppy. I double checked the audio file and it seems fine. Also the problem occurs in both VLC player as in Windows Media Player, also on YouTube. Inside Magic the problem is not present.

Any idea what could be causing this issue? I tried re-exporting the project, but the exact same thing happens.
I am exporting using OpenH264 mp4 codec setting.

Thank you very much!

I'm listening on my computer speakers which are not great but I don't hear any problems...?

I double checked with my collegues, they can hear it clearly. Maybe check again using headphones?

Thanks.

I still don't hear anything on headphones. Anyone else want to take a listen?

It sounds fine on this end, from what I hear. There is a synth pad/sequence in the background, from 5:20 to 5:40, that has that type of choppy effect sound but I cannot tell if it's intended or not. After 5:40 I do not hear it again.

Same here , there is the sound on the high frequency, synced with the music, but no distortion for me

It's surely not inteded. The mastered audio version doesn't show thisl. The funny thing though is that it always happens in the same spot when exporting the video again.

Can you post the mastered version so we can compare?

Ok, that's only the last part though. Can you post the full track, and in a way that I can download it? I want to try exporting it myself.

I do hear a difference but it doesn't exactly sound "distorted"... it just sounds like a different instrument was used...

Ok thanks. And one more question, have you noticed the problem with any other tracks, or just this one?

I think I found the problem and I'll fix it for the next update.

I'm also going to add a new uncompressed audio option for higher quality.

Thank you. Appreciate you taking time for this. For now I solved it by replacing the audio in a video editor.

Yes that's a perfectly reasonable workaround in case anyone else has the same problem.
