Audio Object Metadata

The Audio Object Metadata view provides detailed information about the metadata of the currently selected Audio Object. In order to have content shown in this view, you must select an Audio Object in the Audio Object List. The information shown in this view is based on the current profiler cursor time.

Metadata is a collection of information stored along with the Audio Object. Metadata includes the positioning information from Wwise, as well as the custom Metadata plug-in’s information inserted from the Actor-Mixer Hierarchy or the Master-Mixer Hierarchy.

Metadata can be used by an Effect plug-in or by an endpoint to render Audio Objects. For more information on Metadata, refer to Metadata.


To have information in this view, you must enable Audio Object Data in the Profiler Settings prior to capturing data, and you must select a point in time from the capture.

Opens a search field where standard alphanumeric entries filter out unmatching elements from the view. Learn more in Using tables.

Click the Close icon to the left of the search icon to close the search field and remove the filter.


The searches do not include elements in collapsed nodes of the List View, Query Editor, MIDI Keymap Editor, and Reference View.
