I really like the simplicity of FMOD Studio’s randomizing to provide additional variations. I know I can specify play percentage in multi-sound (or scatter) events to give some sounds more of a likelihood of triggering than others.
But how do I set it so sounds do NOT play twice in a row, even if randomized? Similar to some software samplers that can alternate through a group of samples, but not play the same one twice consecutively.
Or, less flexibly but still useful in some situations, a way for it to play sounds in a given order, then repeat that order.
"Random no repeat" is actually the default behaviour of playlists in FMOD Studio. It was used so ubiquitously in FMOD Designer that we made it standard.
That being said, if you specify a play percentage for any of the entries in a playlist, the “no repeat” mode is automatically be turned off for that playlist. This is to prevent the “no repeat” behaviour from distorting the actual play percentages away from the values you specify.
