Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

AudioSource.PlayClipAtPoint

I tried using this method after configuring my project for spatial sound and it seems to work well. It also seems like a good method to use for generic sound effects such as selections and alert bells. Before I go peppering my code with calls to this method are there any notes that I should be aware of? Is the static method already configured for optimal spatialization? If not can I configure it to be?

  • It does -- thanks David!

    FYI - the context I'm using the method in does include visible source emitters. For example, I created a generic behavior for moving objects with a snapping effect. For each `snap' I am playing an audio clip using AudioSource.PlayClipAtPoint. I architected it this way so that I could use a single instance of a editing controller to coordinate editing a multitude of objects. It seemed impractical to attach an AudioSource to each object or to manage a pool of AudioSources. I agree that the quality is just fine for this purpose - we will stick with instanced audio sources for higher quality effects.
