Problems with confirming Lesson 3 of Wwise 101 course

+4 votes
Hello guys!
I have a problem with "DCP_Music" event and states "Dead" and "Alive"
I do everything right like it was described in course
But, heartbeat has not triggered
And there is no errors in capture log about "DCP_Music"
And there is no notifications about swithing between states "Dead" and "Alive"
What can be wrong?

Am I the only one who have this problem with DCP_Music event?
Same issue here - did you find anything out?
same problem here, wonder if the event DCP_Music is removed in this version of Cube? Would be nice if they updated the Tutorials to the latest version of Wwise as well, there has been some changes over the years and the current versions of the tutorial is not directly compatible with the latest version of Wwise either as you have to convert the Lessons etc  :/
Hi there, same problem here, this can only mean that the problem is out of our control and that we shouldn't feel bad for the heartbeats not working properly when generating the soundbank, If anything this teaches us that we should really speak with our programmers to ensure nothing like this happens. Cheers!

Hi, same problem here. I did everything described in lesson 3 but states are not changing. And the profiler confirms that.

You can use the Spawn_Player Event instead of the DCP_Music to start the heartbeat.

Thanks, this helped. Heart beat is now triggering , but I think this event might be triggered more than once as the sound seemed to be playing several times over the top of each other. Also, the Alive \ Dead states still don't seem to be working. Shame they haven't updated the tutorials.
Thank you! Changing from DCP_Music to Spawn_Player really helped. But it's as written in comment above. States are not working.
Bro! This fixed it.Thank you from our study group!States still don't work though.
Thank you so much! you save my life!!
To add some more info, before generate on soundbank, I should remote the cube.

Hey Guys,

I have created a guide to assist with the Heartbeat issue & help you learn about Blend containers
The guide also adds a vocal breath intensity as the player character loses health.

You may need to refer to these videos to, as the default project hierarchy has been replaced:
Wwise - Clean up:
Wwise - Preparation:

Hope the guide helps you all!

Same here. Tried to recheck all the steps three times with no result. I guess the current version of Cube has new or different game calls and all the tutorials including the pdf course book need to be updated. Moving on to Lesson 4.
