I have hundreds of players/bots moving around in 3D and making various sounds.
Rarely, I will have many in the same area at the same time, making the same sound.
If is deafening, due to the additive blend.
What is the proper solution to this problem?

Bumping [b:3d8zkwr8]up[/b:3d8zkwr8] might be the problem are you increasing or decreasing the priority value?
[quote="fmodex.chm":3d8zkwr8]priority for the channel. 0 to 256 inclusive. 0 = most important. 256 = least important. Default = 128[/quote:3d8zkwr8]
Hope this is helpful

I re-examined the code and figured that my problem might be due to priority stealing. However, bumping up the priority of these sounds made no difference.
What I have is a sound for which I have setMaxAudible(1) and setMaxAudibleBehavior(FMOD_SOUNDGROUP_BEHAVIOR_STEALLOWEST). I am now also setting priority to 0 on the play.
I am hearing this sound cut out or fail to play, even when it is for the hero, i.e. the closest player that can emit the sound.
I didn’t want to setMaxAudible higher because multiple coincident plays would be too loud.
