A few months ago I purchased a new soundcard (Soundblaster AE-5 Plus), but suddenly it started splitting up the sounds in games. For example, in Rocket League, after about 5 minutes of playing, the car engine sound is suddenly only in the left side of the headset, but all the the other sounds and effects works just as usual and can be heard in both left and right ear cup. The same thing in Rainbow Six Siege, just only with the dialogue/narrator and my own footsteps. It's like the game or my headset picks out a few specific tracks/effects that it only wants to play in the left side.

The only fix I've found so far is going to the Sound Blaster Command software and re-enabling the output mode with the button in the bottom left corner. However this only works for 5 minutes. There is no problems whatsoever when listening to music.
