This method doesn't work with sounds with more than 2 channels (5.1 or 7.1) or if the EnableMixingFeatures property has been set to BOOL_FALSE.


When dealing with video clips, calls to this method will have no effect if the video clip has not been loaded with the VideoPlayer.LoadForTempoChange, VideoPlayer.LoadFromMemoryForTempoChange, VideoPlayer.LoadFromMemorySyncForTempoChange or VideoPlayer.LoadSyncForTempoChange methods.


Further details about songs mixing can be found inside the How to mix your songs section.
