One Minute Wwise | Connecting a MIDI Controller
How use a MIDI controller with Wwise. Learn to connect knobs and buttons to functionalities, but also how to make groups that only affect a certain view. No commercials, no lengthy introductions.
So if you're anything like me, you've invested in a little too many MIDI controllers. But here's the thing. If you've got an unused MIDI controller lying around, why not use it as a Wwise Control Surface.
First, hook up the controller in the Control Surface Devices and make a new Control Surface Session. Here comes the fun part! Let's make this knob, control the Player_MovementSpeed (RTPC), which influences the footstep sounds. So add a binding, rotate a knob, click in the green area of the RTPC, then specify the Player_MovementSpeed RTPC and that's it! It's actually that simple.
Next, let's take a drum pad and make it play a sound. But instead of playing whatever we've selected, let's make it play the sound from the Soundcaster, so you can continue selecting other objects, while keeping this as your test session. So start by creating a group, add a binding, tab the pad, add a binding to Play, and then in the toolbar of the Soundcaster Session, select the group. You can now go nuts with testing footsteps! Even when you're in the middle of other modifications, cause as you'll see in the toolbar, the group is only linked to the Soundcaster. That's it.

If you are using an Arturia MiniLab MKII like in this video, make sure to set the knobs to send "Absolute" values and store your changes in a Memory Device with Arturia's MIDI Control Center.
