@NoSuck: It is quite likely that the many patches, that had to be applied on top of 14.4.2 to fix the 12 (!) CVEs that sox currently has attached to that version, broke something. IMHO, the best thing to do would be to complain upstream [1] and demand a new release (to also get the remaining ~30 patches on top of 14.4.2 released).
That being said: I've tried to get a reply from upstream for about a year now and don't have the feeling they care about releases (although they do care about new features apparently).
