Getting to know the graph view

Several views in Wwise include a graph. You can use these graphs to map the relationship between two variables, plot spatial positioning, and to monitor performance.

There are several different graphs in Wwise. Although they generally support many of the same functions, they do have their differences.

The following table describes the unique purpose of each graph.

Use this graph


Project Settings (Obstruction/Occlusion tab)

Define the relationship between volume and LPF and the obstruction and occlusion factors for sound objects.

Property Editor (RTPC tab)

Define the relationship between Game Parameter values and the property values in Wwise.

Blend Tracks Editor

To group objects into Blend Tracks so that you can apply one or more RTPC curves to them, crossfade between them, or both.

Attenuation Editor

Define the relationship between certain properties and the distance the listener is from the emitting source to create realistic attenuation or fall-off of a sound.

Position Editor

Create a path within the 3D environment to localize the sound within the surround sound speaker environment.

Switch Group Property Editor

Map the different Switches within a Switch Group to a specific Game Parameter.

Music Fade Editor

Define the fade-in/out curves between two pieces of music in a music transition.

Performance Monitor

View information related to the performance of the sound engine as game elements are triggered by the game, game simulator, or Soundcaster.

The information in the Performance Monitor is read-only and is for diagnostic purposes only. As a result, you cannot add and remove control points, or manipulate any of the curves.

Game Sync Monitor

Tracks the values of RTPCs over time for Game Parameters, Modulators (LFO, Envelope, Time) and MIDI parameters.

The information in the Game Sync Monitor is read-only and is for diagnostic purposes only. As a result, you cannot add and remove control points, or manipulate any of the curves.

Reflect - Effect Editor

Allows to edit five different distance-based curves to define the volume changes due to attenuation, the percentage of spread, and the upper and lower frequencies at which the sound is cut off.

Soundseed Air Woosh Source Plugin Editor (Object Path Graph)

Creates a path that defines the object's trajectory within a Woosh scene as well as to define the attenuation of the sound as it moves farther away.

Soundseed Air (Wind/Woosh) Source Plugin Editor

Create a series of automation curves that define the properties of the generated wind or woosh sound.

Voice Monitor

View curves of the volume of Wwise object voices playing over a timeline.

When creating sound paths and monitoring performance, or working with segments, a time frame also needs to be defined. In these cases, the graph view is associated with a timeline. For more information about working with timelines in Wwise, refer to Getting to Know the Timeline.

Common elements of the graph

Although each of the graph views in Wwise are a little different, they do have some common elements, such as zoom controls, scroll bars, and control points that form a curve or path. The following illustration shows each of the common elements in the graph view.
