Sound Controllers

Sound controllers deliver data from the engine in real time which makes them perfect to control volumes and frequencies of sounds. If you want to monitor sound controllers, you can use these functions:

Command Usable On
getAllSoundControllers Vehicles
getAllEnvSoundControllers Positions
getAllEnv3DSoundControllers Environmental objects

Also look at this forum post for a video showcase and a great and simple to use example mission.
