[FMOD/Unity] Cant stop event when function called

Hi there,

Within one of my functions called when the mouse clicks a specific object in my game the function “pickup()” is called. The function should then stop the phoneRing event however it does not and seems to skip over it. I can stop the event in the “Update()” function by getting input from the mouse button however i was hoping to package it nicely within my other function. I cant see any reason as to why the event would be stopped just because its in a function that i have defined but perhaps theres something that im not aware of. Anyways heres the code

public string phoneRingEvent;
FMOD.Studio.EventInstance phoneRing;

float timeUntilFirstRing = 1.0f;

public GameObject gameController;

// Use this for initialization
void Start ()
    Hv_DTMF_Tones_AudioLib dialTones = GetComponent<Hv_DTMF_Tones_AudioLib>();

    phoneRing = FMODUnity.RuntimeManager.CreateInstance(phoneRingEvent);

private void Update()
    FMODUnity.RuntimeManager.AttachInstanceToGameObject(phoneRing, GetComponent<Transform>(), GetComponent<Rigidbody>());

    if (gameJustStart == true)
        timeUntilFirstRing -= Time.deltaTime;
        if (timeUntilFirstRing <= 0)

            gameJustStart = false;
            timeUntilFirstRing = 100000.0f;

public void pickup()


stop is printed successfully to the debug window so the function is definitely being called, just not stopping the event.


You can add some quick and easy debugging to any FMOD function by doing the following:

FMOD.RESULT result = phoneRing.stop(FMOD.Studio.STOP_MODE_IMMEDIATE);
Debug.Log("Stop result = " + result);

That should give you a bit more information on why it isn’t working.
