public var priority: int;
public int priority;


Sets the priority of the AudioSource.

Unity is virtualizing AudioSources, when there's more AudioSources playing than available hardware channels. The AudioSources with lowest priority (and audibility) is virtualized first. Priority is an integer between 0 and 255. 0=highest priority, 255=lowest priority.
