Audiokinetic has developed a series of premium plug-ins that target the specific needs of interactive sound design and enhance the Wwise experience.
AK Convolution lets you create convincing reverberation based on ambisonics impulse responses of real acoustic spaces, from the smallest room to the largest cathedral.
Motion lets you use the Wwise Authoring Tool to control not only the sound, but the haptic feedback of your control interface.
Reflect is a geometry-informed plug-in that dynamically renders early reflections based on the proximity of the listener/emitter to reflective surfaces, such as walls, ceilings, and floors.
Soundseed™ Air includes two sound generator plug-ins. Soundseed Wind creates seamlessly looping exterior ambiences, aircraft engines and other air displacement based special effects. Soundseed Woosh creates close combat swooshes, bullet fly-byes and other motion sounds.
Soundseed™ Grain is a granular synthesizer which can be added to a Wwise project as a source Plug-In. It allows you to granulate and transform audio files with extreme flexibility.
Soundseed™ Impact is a family of specialized sound generators. Crafted with interactive audio in mind, these plug-ins help saving on CPU and memory while generating infinite variations. SoundSeed synthesized sounds can be used alone or combined as a layer with other pre-recorded sounds to generate rich audio content.
Mastering Suite is a cross-platform high quality mastering solution providing subtle to surgical manipulation to your mix. Support various rendering scenarios by controlling the dynamic range, equalization curve, limiting and gain of individual channels.
AK ASIO This free plug-in uses the Steinberg Audio Stream Input/Output (ASIO) SDK in order to connect to ASIO compatible devices. It can be used as a source plug-in (input) or an Audio Device (output).
AK Channel Router This free mixer plug-in lets you route and mix audio to specific target channels. This is especially useful when dealing with an output device with many channels that require non-standard routing.
Available from Wwise 2018.1.4. To install an Additional Plug-in, select the PLUG-INS tab within the Audiokinetic Launcher, select your Wwise Version, then click on Add Plug-ins.
Impacter is a new source plug-in prototype inspired by the spirit of the original SoundSeed Impact Plug-in. It allows designers to load “impact” sound files into the plug-in and generate sound variations using cross-synthesis, as well as manipulations using intuitive physically-informed parameters.
