Is it possible to listen to converted audio files from within Wwise?

I want to be able to check various conversion settings to make sure I'm not crunching my sound too much, but I can't find any way to demo the lower quality compressed sounds after conversion. When I hit play while selecting the files from within the Conversion window, the full frequency version always plays. Crunched to 400k sample rate to confirm this - no auditory change.

Hello Beatrix, listening to converted files can be simply done via the Transport. You just need to un-select the " Original " button once you have converted your files. See documentation for more info: https://www.audiokinetic.com/library/edge/?source=Help&id=using_original_audio_files_during_playback

Thank you for the quick reply!
Adding to this question, should I assume that playing the non-original sound will play the Windows compressed version? I am working on differing compression for Windows and PS4 right now. Is there any way to test the lower quality PS4 compression next to the Windows compression?
