About Fabric

Fabric provides an extensive array of audio features and custom user interfaces that allow developers to design great audio entirely within Unity3D. Its nested component hierarchy allows users to create complex audio structures and combined with its event based system Fabric reduces the dependency on programmers, giving more power to the sound-designers to work independently.

Fabric’s key features:

  • Powerful timeline multi-track component allows layering and crossfading a number of sounds together.
  • Dynamic mixer, allows developers to constantly change the audio mix of the game during play.
  • Volume meter and side chain components automate volume adjustments, making it easier to let important audio elements cut through the mix.
  • Quick integration with the game using an easy and intuitive audio event system.
  • Custom user interfaces, allowing to quickly iterate and focus on the audio functionality that is important.
  • Written entirely with Unity’s scripting language, doesn’t require external native plug-ins and can be used on any platform that Unity supports.
