Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Attenuation shape - Cone

I think I might have asked this before but I can't see it in my list of questions - so apologies if I have but...

Hi, I have a question, or potentially a request regarding the cone audio shape. At the moment the Falloff distance doesn't seem to apply to the lpf, meaning that whilst it sounds OK when moving off at an angle from the inner cone, when you leave the end of the inner cone (A in attached image) the lpf just snaps from fully off (inside the cone) to fully on. If you think of a tannoy when you're off-centre the sound attenuates and is filtered but if you remain central there's no lpf drop off - since you're still getting the direct sound. (Just like a cone light only fades when you're off-axis). It's not a perfectly physically accurate representation (since off-axis lpf attenutation would be quite different from the lpf over distance when on-axis and ideally you'd want separate control for both) but for the time being it would be great if we have the falloff distance also apply to lpf.

Thanks! R.alt text
