A downloadable add-on

For the FMOD Unity Integration Package
Tested with version 2.01.07 (may work with other versions, but untested).

What is this?

Simply put, I wanted a way to preview FMOD events more quickly, within the Unity editor. The current methods are:

  1. Add the event and hope you guessed correctly. Hit play, and test. Slow
  2. Double-check the names with those in FMOD Studio. Also slow and requires Studio to be open.
  3. Preview the events in the stand-alone FMOD Events Browser in Unity. Better, but still feels like too many additional clicks to make for a convenient workflow.

So my solution: Play a 2D version of the Event with whatever default parameters it has on it, whenever we select a new event in any Event Browser in Unity. This means that no matter what your workflow looked like below, you have auditory sanity checking and previewing at no extra micro-productivity cost.


  1. Download and install the FMOD Unity integration package: https://www.fmod.com/download
  2. Download and install this package. It modifies a single script in the editor. Replace the original with this one.
  3. Enjoy!
