    Error: Cannot create FMOD::Sound instance for resource sharedassets1.resource is still happening on 5.4.2f2.

    It seems to be very device/iOS version specific. We recently launched an app that got ~5k downloads yesterday, on its second day and we've seen this error pop up ~1500 times over the last 24 hours.

    It seems to only happens on:
    iOS version Count
    iOS 10.1.1 581
    iOS 10.0.2 328
    iOS 10.1 53
    iOS 10.0.1 38

    iPad (4th gen, Wi-Fi) 468
    iPhone 5 (A1429) 340
    iPad (4th gen, A1460) 117
    iPhone 5c (A1507/A1516/A1529) 67
    iPhone 5c (A1456/A1532) 4

    I have just started getting this issue on Android when trying to stream an audio file from Persistent data or Streaming assets. I've got some background music playing but I don't seem to be able to play anything while that is playing:
    Error: Cannot create FMOD::Sound instance for resource ؚWT@��T�, (Operation could not be performed because specified sound/DSP connection is not ready. )
    UnityEngine.WWW:GetAudioClipInternal(Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, AudioType)
    UnityEngine.WWW:GetAudioClip(Boolean, Boolean, AudioType)
    UnityEngine.WWW:GetAudioClip(Boolean, Boolean)

    I get the same error on:
    - Samsung S6 running 6.0.1
    - Amazon Fire running Fire OS
    - Google Nexus 7 running 6.0.1
