How do i play multiple sounds in quick succession without one overlapping the other?
i have a global sfx player but it has only 1 AudioStreamPlayer. I searched the internet and found polyphony but it is only for godot 2. is there something similar to polyphony for godot 3?

One way of doing it would be to add a [signal][1] for the finished event, ex:

func _on_AudioStreamPlayer_finished():
    print( "Audio finished, start the next one logic")
	#your logic to play the next one or a random one here...

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

To enable polyphony for AudioStreamPlayers I have added the following script:

    #helper for multiple audio stream playback
    extends AudioStreamPlayer2D
   func play( from_position=0.0 ):
    	if !playing:
     		var asp = self.duplicate(DUPLICATE_USE_INSTANCING)
      		get_parent().add_child(asp) = stream
      		yield(asp, "finished")

It uses polymorphism to override the AudioStreams play()-function and instantiate a new player. This also works for audio tracks in the AnimationPlayer.
