Does C# API documentation exist?

+2 votes
Looking for a file like the Wwise SDK help file that has all the detailed everything, but in C# for Unity use instead. I'm trying to do some more advanced things (dymanic bussing assignments, external sourcing, mic input), but it's really hard to reference the c++ api because the mapping into c# is somewhat unpredictable.

There is not much difference between the C# and C++ API.  There are a few exceptions, which are documented in the "API Changes and Limitations" section of the documentation.   You can find the Unity Integration specific documentation inside your Unity project, under Assets\Wwise\Documentation.  But I agree, this doc is somewhat thin on details.

That said, for the 3 features you list:

- Dynamic bussing: I guess you are talking about Auxiliary Sends?  That's supported and works through the SetGameObjectSendValues function, like in the C++ API.  You can check in the Assets\Wwise\Examples folder, in the files AkEnvironment.cs for an example on how to use that if you want to do your own system.

- External sources: Limited to one source per event (which is 99.999% of the cases).

- Microphone is not supported in Unity integration yet.

Finally, let me mention that we'll be releasing a new version of the Unity plugin quite soon (next few weeks) with better doc and a much easier project setup, amongst other things.

Wwise Audio Input in unity
Good afternoon, has this issue of microphone integration in Unity been resolved yet? We really want to use the microphone with Wwise and Unity 5!
