AkCreateBankSourceCallback  in_pBankCreateFunc 

Registers a codec type with the sound engine and set the callback functions to create the codec's file source and bank source nodes.

Note: This function is deprecated. Registration is now automatic if you link plugins statically. If plugins are dynamic libraries (such as DLLs or SOs), use RegisterPluginDLL.

Codecs and plug-ins must be registered before loading banks that use them.
Loading a bank referencing an unregistered plug-in or codec will result in a load bank success, but the plug-ins will not be used. More specifically, playing a sound that uses an unregistered effect plug-in will result in audio playback without applying the said effect. If an unregistered source plug-in is used by an event's audio objects, posting the Event will fail.
