Creating a Soundcaster Session

Before you can use the Soundcaster, you need to create a Soundcaster session. You can create Soundcaster sessions in the following two places in Wwise:

  • Sessions tab of the Project Explorer.

  • Master control area of the Soundcaster.

To create a Soundcaster Session from the Project Explorer:

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

  2. Under the Soundcaster Sessions heading, do one of the following:

    • Select a Work Unit or Virtual Folder and then click the Soundcaster Session icon in the Project Explorer toolbar.

    • Right-click a Work Unit or Virtual Folder and click New Child > Soundcaster Session from the shortcut menu.

    A new Soundcaster session is added to the Virtual Folder or Work Unit.

  3. Replace the default name with one that best represents the Soundcaster session.

  4. Double-click the new Soundcaster session to open the session in the Soundcaster.

[Note] Note

You can cut, copy, and paste a Soundcaster session in the Project Explorer using the standard Windows shortcuts. If you no longer need a Soundcaster session, you can delete it by pressing the Delete key.

To create a new Soundcaster session from the Soundcaster:

  1. In the Soundcaster, click the Soundcaster Session Selector button (>>) and select New from the list.

    The New Soundcaster Session dialog box opens.

  2. Select the Work Unit into which you want to create a new Soundcaster session.

  3. In the Name field, replace the default name with one that best represents the Soundcaster session.

  4. Click OK.

    The Soundcaster session is created.
