Wwise SDK 2023.1.4
Release Notes 2023.1.4

The following sections list and describe the changes to Wwise between version 2023.1.3 and version 2023.1.4.
Platform-specific information can be found here:

For earlier versions, please refer to Previous Release Notes.

New Features

  • WG-68770 Added support to compile some public SDK headers with an AK_NULL_PLATFORM macro defined beforehand. This can be used to mitigate many compiler errors that could arise when trying to compile an application on a platform where the sound engine is not supported by Wwise, or the necessary files are not yet available.

Behavior Changes

  • WG-69971 To support future patches, the schema for the communication protocol used by the Wwise Authoring tool to profile the sound engine runtime has been modified in a way that breaks backward compatibility of communication across minor patch versions. This means that authoring tools before Wwise 2022.1.13 will not connect to games running sound engine versions from (or after) Wwise 2022.1.13. The opposite, authoring 22.1.13 connecting to a 22.1.xx game, will work. The same logic applies to version 23.1.4.

Note that SoundBank contents have not had their schema modified, and are still compatible across these versions.

  • WG-71327 Removed the Mixer column from the Busses tab of the Advanced Profiler.

Performance Changes

  • WG-70930 (Spatial Audio) Optimized the update of Spatial Audio Emitters.

Miscellaneous Changes

  • WG-70951 Upgraded Visual Studio 2022 version to 17.8.9.
  • WG-71498 Upgraded Visual Studio 2019 version to 16.11.35.
  • WG-71502 Upgraded Visual Studio 2017 version to 15.9.61.
