Wwise Up On Air - Hands On | Wwise Unity Demo Showcase (Pure Data/ Heavy) w/ Hou Chenzhong

Join us this week on Wwise Up On Air as we go Hands On with Audiokinetic Product Expert Hou Chenzhong as we explore his custom Wwise Unity project that illustrates the dynamic possibilities enabled by Wwise and Unity in-conjunction with Pure Data(Pd) and leveraging the Heavy compiler to create custom Plug-ins for Wwise. We go over the use of a custom BitCrusher Plug-In to modify the sound and visuals dynamically, along with a Multi-band Meter created in Pure Data and Built as a Wwise Plug-In to modify the size of objects in Unity based-on their amplitude and frequency. Lastly we take a look at music generated by Open Music and implemented using MIDI in the Wwise Music System and demonstrated in Unity.
