UPDATE:

While the release notes state that this patch fixes distorted audio issues, it actually introduced them to us. In order to resolve this issue, we had to lower our Speaker Audio quality to 24bit and 44100Hz. By doing this, the in-game distorted issues were fixed. We were able to replicate this numerous times, so yeah: this is an issue that was introduced with this new patch.
