Inherits from: Singleton <T>
The Audio Manager Script controls all AudioSources used by the character, grouping them in different categories, SFx, Music and Voice.
|Sfx Volume||Defines the Sound Effects volume, e.g explosions, environment and weapons.|
|Voice Volume||Defines the Voice volume, e.g character responses and CutScenes.|
|Music Volume||Defines the Music volume.|
|Sfx Mixer||The SFx Mixer is used to apply effects such echoing and deafness to SFx sources.|
|Music Mixer||The Music Mixer is not affect by any king of effect, for this reason, it is perfect for all Music Sources in game.|
|Instance||Access singleton instance through this propriety.|
|SFxVolume||Defines the Sound Effects volume, e.g explosions, environment and weapons.|
|VoiceVolume||Defines the Voice volume, e.g character responses and CutScenes.|
|MusicVolume||Defines the Music volume.|
|SFxMixer||Returns the SFx AudioMixerGroup. (Read Only)|
|MusicMixer||Returns the Music AudioMixerGroup. (Read Only)|
|RegisterSource||Register a new AudioEmitter and returns its reference.|
|GetSource||Search and return an AudioEmitter by the given name.|
|Play||Plays an AudioClip in the AudioEmitter if it's not being already used.|
|ForcePlay||Forces the AudioEmitter to stop playing the current AudioClip and play immediately the requested sound.|
|CalculateVolumeByPercent||Calculate the AudioEmitter volume by using the formula: (volume = 1 - value / startValue). Useful when you need to start playing a sound at certain point. e.g when the character vitality is below certain point, it will increase the volume as the vitality gets lower.|
|Stop||Immediately stop playing the current AudioClip.|
|PlayClipAtPoint||Plays an AudioClip at a given position in world space.|
We recommend that you use AudioManager only to register AudioEmitters. However, if necessary, we have added functions to decrease the verbosity of your code.

It is worth pointing out that the alternative method is extremely inefficient when compared to the recommended method (caching the reference at the Object initialization) because the system has to search for AudioEmitter at each execution.
