The documentation is good, but there is no search. And it can be a little difficult to find what section to look in.
For example, I was recently trying to find information on how to set rolloff. Searching the forums gave nothing because I was searching for falloff (I didn't know the lingo). I thought I might need to use Audio mixer groups. And so I tried to find help on the Bus Control. It took 10 minutes to find it down the bottom of the group mixer help. Once I found it, the information was very brief. Eventually after clicking on every possible thing in master audio, I found that I can set the rolloff directly on the sound variation.
I am not sure what the best way is to make the documentation more useful, but a couple suggestions: - Provide a search feature - Have an Index page that lists every feature. This would allow you to navigate the documentation bottom up, rather than just top down. - Overlap some details on Unity sound features. Master audio is what I use to manage my sounds. I want to find all my sound answers here. Even if that is just a redirection to the unity documentation. - Links to the videos from the documentation. Otherwise, you don't know they exist.
This is a relatively minor issue. But something I have struggled with on a number of occasions, probably due to my low level of sound knowledge. I have not found anything I can't do in Master Audio. But if I can't find it, I can't use.

Thanks for the feedback.
I'm not going to be able to provide a search feature on the documentation. It's a straight HTML website, there is no back end code or anything.
The videos are old enough that I don't really refer to them. And we aren't planning on doing new videos. They're basically out of the date too fast to maintain. The documentation is always up to date though.
Funny, I call it rolloff as well haha. I have linked many places in our documentation over to the online Unity documentation. If you spot a couple missing offenders, please send them our way and I'll take care of them.
I'm not sure a comprehensive index would be useful. Maybe you can take one page we have, and list all the things that should be in the index so I understand? This one might be doable.
In any case, please don't worry and ask us here or over email (email@example.com) whenever you're struggling to find some info. We're always available.
