If "Override parent" for the Virtual Voice is not ticked, will it use the Virtual Voice behaviour of the parent?

Question in the youtube comments for this video

Nice tutorial! I was wondering if "Override parent" for the Virtual Voice is not ticked, will it use the Virtual Voice behaviour of the parent (in this case "Emitters")? Thx :)

Thanks André.

Yes. When using the Override Parent everything within the same thin black rectangle will no longer be inheriting the parent properties.

Not sure what you mean by "Emitters", but each instance of the sound will take more or less memory depending on how many individual settings it has.
For instance, say we've got an Actor-Mixer with these sounds inside.
> Actor-Mixer
>> Sound SFX 01 (override parent enabled)
>> Sound SFX 02 (override parent disabled - inherit parent settings)
>> Sound SFX 03 (override parent disabled - inherit parent settings)

In runtime the Sound SFX 01 will take up a tiny bit more about of memory, because it will need to "remember" its own individual settings, whereas Sound SFX 02 and 03 will just look at the same parent settings in memory.
