Microphone record/playback problem in Take Recorder

Can anyone reproduce this?

  1. create new blank project
  2. open take recorder
  3. setup to record mic audio
  4. record a take while talking
  5. review the take in sequencer, press play, audio does not play
  6. quit UE5 and restart
  7. Open sequence in take recorder, press play, audio now plays

Driving me nuts! Thought I was doing something wrong but the same process in 4.26 works fine. Reported as a bug but would like to know if anyone else can reproduce it.

Also I had some recordings I did alongside a liveLinkFace metahuman and when I close UE5, reopen and play them back the audio is frequently out of sync by a second or two.
