Could it possibly be a misplaced RTPC? What do you mean by "editor mode"?

You need to make sure there's the SoundBank GameObject, AkInitializer GameObject and AkSoundListener Object.

Hey Thibaut,

Where do you have your scene view camera once playing the sound? Once in editor mode, I believe that the scene view camera acts as your listener, so if you are watching the sound's object on too far a distance, the attentuation might make it inaudible.

Is this helpful? or did you already fix it?
