Audio Output on Platforms

This section explains how Wwise will set up its audio pipeline for each platform.

Note: In all platforms, Wwise always outputs a PCM signal.

Windows

By default on Windows, Wwise takes the system default device's configuration. You can override the default configuration by setting the AkPlatformInitSettings::uChannelMask when calling AK::SoundEngine::Init().

By default, Wwise outputs at a sample rate of 48 kHz. You can override this sample rate by setting AkPlatformInitSettings::uSampleRate when calling AK::SoundEngine::Init().

Tip: To change the default device configuration on Windows Vista and Windows 7:
  • Right-click the Speaker icon in the system tray
  • Select 'Playback Devices'
  • In the 'Sound' panel, select the device you want to use (use 'Set Default' to change the default.)
  • Click 'Configure' to change the configuration for the selected device

Tip: When using the Wwise Authoring tool, you can force a specific configuration by using the 'Audio' menu. Please refer to the user documentation for more information.

Xbox One

On Xbox One, Wwise always outputs a PCM signal in stereo or 7.1. From this signal, the console can provide the following signals:

  • Stereo (Analog or LPCM)
  • 5.1 LPCM
  • 7.1 LPCM
  • Bitstream out (for Dolby and DTS Digital formats)

Wwise always outputs at a sample rate of 48 kHz.

PS4

On PS4, Wwise always outputs a PCM signal in stereo or 7.1. From this signal, the console can provide the following signals:

  • Stereo (Analog or LPCM)
  • 5.1 LPCM
  • 7.1 LPCM
  • Bitstream out (for Dolby and DTS Digital formats)

Wwise always outputs at a sample rate of 48 kHz.

Switch

On Switch, Wwise always outputs a PCM signal in Stereo or 5.1, depending on the initialization settings. From this signal, depending on the console settings, the console will provide:

  • 48 kHz 2-channel LPCM
  • 48 kHz 6-channel LPCM

Mac

By default on Mac, Wwise takes the system default device's configuration. You can override the default configuration by setting the AkPlatformInitSettings::uChannelMask when calling AK::SoundEngine::Init().

By default, Wwise outputs at a sample rate of 48 kHz. You can override this sample rate by setting AkPlatformInitSettings::uSampleRate when calling AK::SoundEngine::Init().

Tip: To change the default device configuration in Mac OS, go to Applications/Utilities/Audio MIDI Setup.

iOS/tvOS

On iOS, Wwise always outputs a stereo signal.

By default, Wwise outputs at a sample rate of 48 kHz. You can override this sample rate by setting AkPlatformInitSettings::uSampleRate when calling AK::SoundEngine::Init().

Android

On Android, Wwise always outputs a stereo signal.

By default, Wwise outputs at a sample rate of 48 kHz. You can override this sample rate by setting AkPlatformInitSettings::uSampleRate when calling AK::SoundEngine::Init().

Linux

On Linux, Wwise outputs a stereo or 5.1 signal.

By default, Wwise outputs at a sample rate of 48 kHz. You can override this sample rate by setting AkPlatformInitSettings::uSampleRate when calling AK::SoundEngine::Init().

Magic Leap

On Magic Leap, Wwise always outputs a stereo signal.

By default, Wwise outputs at a sample rate of 48 kHz. You can override this sample rate by setting AkPlatformInitSettings::uSampleRate when calling AK::SoundEngine::Init().
