Interesting... I only ever play regular Doom II (with random maps made by
oblige) and I never notice this behaviour. But, I'm not using headphones,
and my speakers tend to be turned down pretty low.

Well, if it's a thing that only happens in Brutal Doom, not in plain
Doom/DoomII or other mods...

Weird that it's using fmodapi for digital audio. I would have thought
fmod would only be for background music, and that the actual game sounds
would be played by the game engine (using OpenAL or just SDL audio).
