Description

A container for audio data.

An AudioClip stores the audio file either compressed as ogg vorbis or uncompressed. AudioClips are referenced and used by AudioSources to play sounds.

See Also: AudioClip component in the Components Reference.

Variables

channelsThe number of channels in the audio clip. (Read Only)
frequencyThe sample frequency of the clip in Hertz. (Read Only)
lengthThe length of the audio clip in seconds. (Read Only)
loadInBackgroundCorresponding to the "Load In Background" flag in the inspector, when this flag is set, the loading will happen delayed without blocking the main thread.
loadStateReturns the current load state of the audio data associated with an AudioClip.
loadTypeThe load type of the clip (read-only).
preloadAudioDataPreloads audio data of the clip when the clip asset is loaded. When this flag is off, scripts have to call AudioClip.LoadAudioData() to load the data before the clip can be played. Properties like length, channels and format are available before the audio data has been loaded.
samplesThe length of the audio clip in samples. (Read Only)

Public Functions
