    I am trying to replicate a PA System with the Unity Audio Mixer system. I cannot seem to find a tutorial or any advice that would help me recreate "scratchy amplified" sound from a cheap carnival announcer.

    Any advice or links to choose the proper filter effects to use with the Unity Audio Mixer?

    Thanks for any advice. :)

    Here is the game I am building and this video should give an idea of the Carnival and Ambiance.

    Well I ended up doing this in Audacity. I thought I would share it here just in case it will help others.

    I found if you add a small echo Distortion to the clip and then just amplify the hell out of it (and allow clipping)..... it will sound just like a junk old PA system. You can then play it a little lower in Unity and it sounds pretty good.

    You can hear the carnival hecklers in the attached vid Fast forward to about 4:00 to hear the Coin Pusher Heckler.
