Dreams Bugs šŸœ

With such a huge suite of creative tools, you may encounter occasional bugs in Dreams. Itā€™s really helpful for us to hear about them! If you discover an issue in Dreams, please check to see if anyone else has reported the issue before and if someone has, comment on it with your experiences. If not, post a new bug report here!

Hereā€™s some top tips to help us track down your bug as quickly as possible:

ā€¢ Give us a brief, clear summary of the bug. If necessary let us know what you think should be happening that isnā€™t.
ā€¢ Let us know the exact steps we need to follow to recreate your bug. For example -
ā€œLoad game > go to create mode > search for banana > stamp ā€œsuper cool bananaā€ > the banana didnā€™t load!"
ā€¢ If possible it really helps if you can include a screenshot or video of the problem.
ā€¢ Let us know the release version of the game ā€“ you can find this by having the Dreams icon highlighted on the Playstation homescreen, pressing ā€œoptionsā€ and then ā€œinformationā€. The bit we want is the Version number!

  1. Sound effect wont play

    I add sound effects to a timeline and they will not play. I have a door and I have keyframes set up in a timeline to animate it opening and then record possession for my puppet to walk through. I have a small screen shake and rumble. I add sound effects to the same timeline to make some sort of sound as it's opening and it won't play. Sometimes it will play jus part of it jus a second or two then go off. I am probably doing something wrong but I've tried everything. I don't know if it's aā€¦

  2. Bug in the music creation tool

    When I use the audio creation tool I set my timeline, I select my instruments, but when I press play to hear what I chose there is no sound, so I just can't hear the music and therefore go on.
    It worked fine 2/3 weeks ago, last time I tried, and since yesterday nothing. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the program but no changes. What should I do?

  3. No sound comes out of recorded wave

    When I use any sound recording device such as the PlayStation camera and also the original PS4 ear piece to record sound. It has the wave file of the audio I just recorded in the timeline but when I press play no sound comes out. This is just confusing because it's obviously picked up the sound from the mic to create the wave file. This is a big problem for me because I can't continue with my animation project. (I'm trying to make the character talk).

    Please help!

    I’ve notified the team about this issue so they will keep an eye out for it.
    If you ever experience it again, then please do let us know.

  4. Sound Recorder seemingly disabled in Remote Play?

    In the Early Access builds of the game, you could use Remote Play to record audio through a different system's microphone, be it your smartphone or your PC (the latter being handy if your specific microphone isn't natively compatible with the PS4 system).

    This does not seem to be the case in the full game; if you try to use the Sound Recorder in Remote Play (it doesn't matter what device you're connecting from), the hula-scope that normally surrounds your Imp when recording audio does not show up, and nothing gets saved when you stop recording. Despite this, the Controllerā€¦

  5. Instrument inputs

    2 things.

    triggering a drum kit instrument via logic, the expected button input thru a music combiner has changed, it used to be 0 to 7, now it is -0.5 to 6.5 so hits are at .5 not the whole number.

    The course pitch tweak now expects input of -0.945 to 0.945 instead of -1 to 1.

    Are these deliberate changes?
    Also , why does a drum kit need to be set to sound fx type for the kit to respond to button / logic.

  6. timeline playback speed slows down in complicated scene

    When the gameplay meter starts to reach a certain point, Timelines will no longer play at the right speed. All audio plays at the correct speed, but the pointer for the timeline is slow. So, when I try to splice or combine sound effects and music, it doesn't play in the scene properly. The music would already be done. I've attached a video showing a second counter and how the seconds change when the scene becomes too large. Here's the Youtube link if the file didn't work.

  7. Mysterious Audio In my creation

    I have made a start to a game level and when i went into play mode to test it there is music playing. I have not intentionally added any music to my game as of yet so I want to delete it. The problem is i can find the source of it anywhere. Its not attached to any of my objects that i used from the dreamiverse as far as i can see. How do i identify the source of the sound so I can erase it?

    Edit: I have used the X-ray setting to see if it was hidingā€¦

  8. Sound clip not powering up

    I released the Sarrā€™oa Fighter demo, and itā€™s created with a selector controlling multiple flying states. All the sound clips in each state work perfectly, however in the landing microchip (I used a microchip for every the states) I just stamped the sound effect gadgets directly into the chip, just like the other states. When it triggers the first time in this Landing state, the microchip powers the sound effect clips up just fine, but then when it cycles through all the states by taking Off and landing again, and then it again reaches the landing microchip, the sound effectā€¦

  9. Delay gadget has spicyness/randomisation, but it does nothing

    I'm guessing it's not meant to have spicyness/randomisation per note?

  10. Beeping sound when I record

    My recordings have a squeaky sound. I go to modes -> sound mode -> tools -> sound recorder and I record my voice using a "beats headset" with a built in mic. Then when I play it back, I hear a constant beeping sound along with my recording. Now when I use the mic outside of Dreams to talk to friends, there is no problem at all. I suppose there is some hidden setting that causes this?

    Hello Athanasios,

    Unfortunately this is not a Dreams issue as this is likely to be a hardware issue. Our testers were able to conclude that it may be a Dualshock charging issue that causes beeping.

    Cheers,

  12. Playing a [Once mode] instrument/sound with time stopped, then again with time active, causes the sound to persist in all scenes and menus

    [PS4 slim, version 2.17]

    In Edit Mode, if a Sound (set to Slice Playback = Once) receives active grains while time is stopped, then receives MORE active grains while time is flowing, you can no longer tweak the older grains. As long as time is flowing, you can still tweak the newest grains.

    If you set this up and then rewind time, BOTH sets of grains gain immunity to tweaks and will complete playback, regardless of scene change.

    --

    Steps to reproduce:

    0) Find a Sound that's at least 60 seconds long, and contains just one slice. (Longer is better.ā€¦

  13. Some sound remains unaffected by changes in the Audio tab of "My Preferences".

    I've tried adjusting my sound settings for Dreams in the "My Preferences" menu since the feature was added to the game. I've turned everything down to 1 yet some sounds seem to be completely unaffected and play at full volume. The current version of the game is 2.09 but this has been an issue for as long as the feature has existed.

    Hi there,

    It’s been a while since we heard back from you regarding this issue.

    If it is still occurring, then could you please respond and we’ll look into this for you.

    Many thanks,

  14. Piano roll window position causing trouble when playing notes in low octaves and window is pinned to screen

    When playing mostly very low key notes let's say around C1 you will most probably change the piano roll window to display the keys around the C1 octave most likely.

    When you pin the piano roll to screen and then switch to performance mode or slice viewer, the window can get out of view to the top since the anchor of the window is still around the original view before changing the octaves.

    If the window is still partially visible then you can stop performing, drag the window down and start performing again.
    But switching back to piano roll willā€¦

  15. Can't listen to music, only sound effects.

    I can't listen any music only sound effects, but yesterday I could. Now I was going to do the tutorial but I can't listen even the "Connie's Theme". I tried restarting the game but the issue persists.

  16. Speaker's envelope has an input

    Sending a value into this, I can't get it to have any effect on anything apart from the envelope now outputs the value you sent into it. Could be a bug? If not, I'd love to know what this does and how to see it in action!

  17. Music mode has no sound

    I turned down the music playing on the homescreen in the preferences but now if I want to create music I have to turn it back up again because there is no sound to be heard. Surely the option to turn off the background music shouldn't affect the audio mode when creating?

  18. Extending a timeline while editing a source element does not extend the timeline when the element is updated in scene.

    While working on an Audio-Visual scene, I used "Edit Source" to add a new section to a music timeline. After updating this element in the scene, I had to manually extend the timeline in order to make this new section a visible part of the timeline in scene.

  20. Music bug

    I am creating a jazz band song in Dreams. There is a bug with the trumpet instrument. A#5 sometimes plays the right note and sometimes plays an octave lower. All notes above A#5 play an octave too low.
