The Audio Manager package is designed, like most of my assets is free and aimed to be user friendly and easy to use. Once installed into your project, you may call for sounds to be played pretty much anywhere you want. With options to control the location, volume, pitch, time and delay and more when calling for a sound to play.

How does scanning work?
By default the script scans the “/audio” directory if you have left a directory field left blank, you can change the path via the Audio Manager Global Settings which we recommend you do before scanning for the first time. to go to any sub-directory within the “/audio” folder, or add additional directories using the inspector display. This field is not case sensitive as shown below:
- Example 1: mygame – “/audio/mygame” will be scanned
- Example 2: MyGame – “/audio/mygame” will be scanned (capitals are ignored)
- Example 3: MyGame/SFX – “/audio/mygame/sfx” will be scanned
The script will automatically update with the new sounds once you have entered a valid directory. Once scanned the script will list all the audioclips it has found. This will update on the fly when you add new files into your scanned directory with the audio manager selected.
As of 2.6.0 you can select the directories to scan from a drop down. Each section of the dropdown is next in the directory hierarchy. You can change how the drop down is shown in the settings of the asset.
Why is a file not scanning?
The audio manager will scan all valid audio file types that work with unity. There are a few reasons why a clip won’t scan. Try some of the steps below if you are having this issue.
- Make sure the file type is accepted by Unity.
- Make sure the clip name is not the same as another in the project.
- If updating a clip with a new one with the same name, delete the old one and let the audio manager rescan, then add the new one.
Why won’t a clip won’t play?
There can be a few reason why a clip won’t play:
- Check that you have spelt the clip name correctly.Check that the clip is present in the audio manager file you are using.
I called a function and the clip plays a million times! Why is this?
This is due to you having the call in an update() or similar, if you have the call in update you need to have either a Boolean or a coroutine to stop it been called more than once.
The Inspector hasn’t loaded correctly when I added the script, Why?
