Wwise SDK 2023.1.4
Release Notes 2021.1.10

The following sections list and describe the changes to Wwise between version 2021.1.9 and version 2021.1.10.
Platform-specific information can be found here:

For earlier versions, please refer to Previous Release Notes.

Behavior Changes

  • WG-60412 Multi-channel Audio Objects that are sent to the output device as System Audio Objects now have volumes similar to those of equivalent multi-channel sources being panned to a Main Mix or Passthrough Mix. This change reduces the volume of multi-channel System Audio Objects by several decibels depending on their channel count, for example -3db for a stereo source or -7db for a quadraphonic source. In practice, this means that any corrections to the mix that were made specifically for 3D Audio in this regard can be removed.

Performance Changes

  • WG-54292 (Spatial Audio) Reduced the number of redundant paths for room game objects.

Bug Fixes

  • WG-58695 Fixed: Possible crash when removing Voice Data profiling data and doing Start Capture.
  • WG-59298 Fixed: Changes to the volume matrix in the AK_SpeakerVolumeMatrix callback only take effect on the next audio frame.
  • WG-59312 Fixed: Audio Objects that are mixed to a Main Mix or Passthrough Mix on the Output Device have an audible crackle due to discontinuous panning when the Audio Object position changes.

  • WG-60510 Fixed: ComputeSphericalVBAPGains returns slightly inaccurate volumes.
  • WG-60564 Fixed: Possible memory leaks when memory allocations fail while registering game objects.
  • WG-60579 Fixed: SetGameObjectToPortalObstruction and SetPortalToPortalObstruction objects and values are not printed to API Calls.
  • WG-60686 Fixed: Property Editor does not refresh correctly when viewing a Music Switch Container after a Work Unit is reloaded.
  • WG-60833 Fixed: Time Stretch effect on virtual voice (play from elapsed time) can cause CPU spike with certain Pitch values.
  • WG-60861 Fixed: Crash when sending empty AkAcousticSurface names.

  • WG-60415 Fixed: Cannot import audio files using unicode characters on macOS.
  • WG-60576 Fixed: Crash when reloading a State Group Work Unit while a Music Switch Container is in the Property Editor.
  • WG-60592 Fixed: Crash when using Modulators that use RTPCs bound to built-in properties.
