[page:Object3D] →


The [name] represents a virtual [link:https://developer.mozilla.org/de/docs/Web/API/AudioListener listener] of the all positional and non-positional audio effects in the scene.
A three.js application usually creates a single instance of [name]. It is a mandatory construtor parameter for audios entities like [page:Audio Audio] and [page:PositionalAudio PositionalAudio].
In most cases, the listener object is a child of the camera. So the 3D transformation of the camera represents the 3D transformation of the listener.

Code Example

// create an AudioListener and add it to the camera const listener = new THREE.AudioListener(); camera.add( listener ); // create a global audio source const sound = new THREE.Audio( listener ); // load a sound and set it as the Audio object's buffer const audioLoader = new THREE.AudioLoader(); audioLoader.load( 'sounds/ambient.ogg', function( buffer ) { sound.setBuffer( buffer ); sound.setLoop(true); sound.setVolume(0.5); sound.play(); });
