Is it possible to get spectral analysis into Unity?

0 votes
Unity's own sound engine provides:
float[] f = new float[1024];
AudioListener.GetSpectrumData(f, 0, FFTWindow.Hamming);
This doesn't seem to work for accessing sounds played through Wwise (which makes sense enough). 
Anyone have a method of spectral analysis for Unity incorporation?

Not out of the box.  The only way would be to write your own native Wwise plugin and add it to the Unity+Wwise plugin by recompiling.  You can check the SDK doc in the section "Going Further", we detail the steps to write a Wwise plugin.

Hi andymule,

Did you succeed in your quest of the spectrum ? I'm looking for the same feature and would like to know if you find another solution than the plugin one as I would like to avoid native code as much as possible to keep the project cross platform.

Thanks for your time,

Sebastien C.
