Transport Control

In the Wwise Transport Control you can play back and audition your audio or motion assets at each phase in the development process, and also go back to audition an imported but unconverted version of the original file when needed. You can also specify which objects you want to audition based on platform, and monitor the playback of fades, delays, and Event Actions that you have applied.

The Transport Control contains standard playback controls and additional functionality to play back and monitor sound, music, and motion objects to which States, Switches, Triggers, or RTPCs have been applied. The following Wwise objects can be played back:

  • Sound SFX

  • Sound Voice

  • Containers

  • Events (not Dialogue Events)

  • Music Segments and Containers

When you select an object, an Event, or a container, it is automatically loaded into the Transport Control, and the name of the object with its associated icon is displayed in the title bar.

(Pin)

When selected, the currently loaded object is locked in the Transport Control, and new objects will not be loaded, even when you have other objects in the Property Editor.

Determines whether the original or converted audio source is played back.

When selected, the object plays back in its original and pre-converted form. When unselected, the converted version of the object is played back, if one exists.

When you convert an audio file for a particular platform, it is converted to meet the specific hardware requirements of that platform. As a result, you may not be able to play back these converted files in Wwise if the authoring tool is running on a platform that does not support the file type.

When selected, only objects included in the selected platform are playable in the Transport Control.

Stops playback.

Pauses playback. Clicking this button a second time will resume playback.

Plays the object loaded into the Transport Control.

Hold Shift while clicking Play to have Wwise play the loaded object while bypassing its properties. That is, somewhat like a PFL (Pre-Fader Listen) found in some DAWs, Wwise will play the object without its hierarchical properties (including such things as volume, pitch, filters, delays, Effects, Auxiliary Sends, Attenuation Curves, RTPC curves, States, positioning, and bus routing), but with its behaviors (such as fades, trims, loop points, and random and sequence playback) still intact.

[Warning] Be Careful!

If you use the Play - Bypass properties shortcut, the resulting sound may be uncomfortably loud or off-pitch.

Clicking on the Transport's Play button plays the clip from the Play Cursor's position. Clicking on the Play button while a Play Cursor continues to run will add another Play Cursor that will concurrently play from the same starting position as the first Play Cursor.

Delay

Indicates whether a delay has been applied to an Event Action or Random or Sequence Container. When there is a delay, this icon becomes blue during the delay period in the playback.

Fade

Indicates whether a Fade has been applied to an Event Action or Random or Sequence Container. When there is a Fade, this icon becomes blue during the fade period in the playback.

Stops playback and returns all property values to their original settings.
