Wwise SDK 2018.1.11
Audio Input Source Plug-in

About this plug-in

This plug-in allows sound designers to use audio from an external source, for example a network stream, or a microphone connected to the PC or console.

Integrating the plug-in

Aside from regular plug-in initialization (see Integration Details - Plug-Ins), integrating the Audio Input plugin requires the game to provide input audio data used by the various instances of the plug-in in the Wwise project. This is done through a callback mechanism, as exposed in AkAudioInputSourceFactory.h:

A very simple integration is demonstrated in the Microphone/AudioInput demo, using a microphone as the input. In the Integration Demo Wwise Project, a Sound Voice named Microphone uses the Audio Input plug-in as a source.

Note: In Wwise, the audio input plugin is fed with audio from the microphone input of the PC. If no microphone is connected, it will be silent.
