Release notes for GG 22.0

20 Jul 2022

by The SteelSeries Software Team


  • Following your feedback, we are happy to introduce an exciting change in the way target devices are managed in Sonar. Now, when unplugging your headset (or audio device), Sonar will automatically select a new target device to avoid no-sound situations. Equally when plugging-in a new device Sonar will use this as target device. In general, Sonar will follow the same logic as Windows to automatically select its target devices. Don’t worry though, you’ll still be able to manually select your target device in the mixer at any time. If you wanna learn more on how the logic works check our FAQ here
