Control Wwise* in VR
Audio production for VR and AR games or XR experiences can be tiresome, as today’s workflow requires audio designers to switch between previewing their work with a VR headset and making changes on a desktop PC. With SPATIAL CONNECT for Wwise, game audio engineers can mix directly in the VR headset, reducing context switching and enabling them to intuitively work on spatial audio in the immersive environment itself.
The project is technically supported by Audiokinetic, whose development team added certain features in their Wwise audio middleware that allowed for that new kind of workflow.
Gesture-controlled audio mixing in VR offers an enhanced perception of the scene, and enables game audio designers to handle the 3D space more intuitively by working in context. Audio designers can control levels, attenuation curves as well as maximum distances and are immediately able to perceive the final user experience and spatial mix.
SPATIAL CONNECT for Wwise also allows game audio engineers to spot hard-to-find problematic sounds and understand the spatial audio session in the game by visualizing the location of active sound events directly in the VR headset and providing the means to intuitively modify the most important audio parameters.
Direct in-headset access to your Wwise mixers, including the ability to solo and mute.
Spot hard-to-find problematic sounds and understand the spatial audio session in game.
A user-selectable hot-key brings up and closes the tool within the Unity preview.
Intuitively select audio objects and manipulate their parameters.
Select distance attenuation curves and alter the curves’ nodes within VR.
Provides a view of recent audio events/objects and allows filtering by keyword.
