MP3 vs WAV performance difference using Fmod?

Hello there,

So, I know that mp3 is slower (cuz it needs decoding) to play in Unity as the article below says.

Is this still true when I use Fmod to play sounds? Would it still take more processing power to play mp3 in Fmod versus wav?


Yes. See for comparison of PCM (wav) vs Vorbis (compressed format similar to MP3).

Awesome! So, ogg is the best.

Vorbis in the case means our own encoder/decoder. Use the fsbank or studio to compress the files.
