Set Output Device at Runtime

0 votes
We would like to allow users to specify the audio output device on Windows at runtime.  My google-fu is failing me today.  Is anyone able to point the way?  Thanks!

It looks to me like this isn't possible without tearing down and reinitialising the Wwise engine entirely :(

Unless I'm mistaken, the audio device can only be specified in AkInitSettings::settingsMainOutput when calling AK::SoundEngine::init()


Curiously, it seems we can't interrogate which devices are available until after bank initialisation.
