irrklang::ISound::setPosition() performance lack

In the process of profiling my game application, I found that the function call irrklang::ISound::setPosition() leads to a significant reduction in performance.
After a series of experiments, I found that the decrease in performance occurs in the following situation:
- created a few sounds
- none of the sounds is not running on the play
- for each 3D sound setPosition() is called for each frame

Very Sleepy profiler indicates that the function irrklang::ISound::setPosition() calls irrKlang::createAudioRecorderDeviceList() function in this case.

After some sound played, reduction in performance is disappears.

Is it possible to fix this?


P.S. irrKlang version is 1.5.0

The profiler obviously shows something wrongly, because the implementation of that function is this:

void CIrrKlangSound::setPosition(vec3df position)
SYNCHRONIZE_WITH_SOUND_ENGINE(;) // this does a thread lock
Position = position;

That is all. Nothing special in that function. It could be that there is a performance drop somewhere, but I think your profiler shows something wrongly.

Thank you for your response.
I'll keep that in mind and try to understand in more detail what is happening.
