Using Factory-Defined Queries

Wwise comes with pre-defined factory Presets for many common queries. You can save time by using these instead of defining queries from scratch.

To run a factory-defined query:

  1. In the Project Explorer, switch to the Queries tab.

  2. From the Factory Queries list, double-click a query.

    The query is loaded into the Query Editor.

  3. Type or select a condition for the criteria as required. You can use the wildcard operator (*) to replace part of a word when you are typing a criterion.

  4. Click Run Query.

    The query results are displayed. You can sort these results by clicking each column heading.

    [Tip] Tip

    When you select an entry in the Results list, it automatically gets loaded into the Transport Control and is ready for playback. You can right-click a selection of entries in the Results list to access a series of commands, such as Edit, Show in Multi Editor, Show in Schematic View, and Convert. You can double-click any entry in the Results list to display it in the Property Editor. You can also drag project elements from the Results list to the Project Explorer. For example, you can drag one or more sound objects from the Results list into an Actor-Mixer or container within the Project Explorer.

  5. To keep the results of your query for use in another application, click Copy to Clipboard.

  6. To clear your criteria and search results, click Clear.
