RegisterBusMeteringCallback fails to callback on anything other than the master bus

0 votes
I'm trying to play around with the bus metering functionality, and I'm able to succesfully receive callbacks against the "Master Audio Bus", which is great.

But I don't seem to be able to receive callbacks from any other bus (I can register the callback functions without issue - the SDK doesn't complain - but the callbacks aren't firing).

 

Should this behaviour work?

Do I need to setup the audio bus to somehow accept callback registration (which, possibly the master bus already does?)

 

I'm running 2014.1.2 on OSX

I just ran into this as well, and was really surprised.

It'd be great if (1) the docs could be updated to mention this and/or (2) the the register call would fail and indicate the bus is missing the required effect.

Okay, I got this.

Turns out user defined busses don't have metering enabled unless you have an effects plugin attached to it.

I couldn't find any way to enable metering explicitly without adding a plugin to the bus.. BUT..

 

There is a handy effects plugin called, simply "Wwise Meter" which is presumably provided just for this purpose - without having to apply any effect to the output.

Job done!
