Capture Unity Audio using Recorder-Effect-Plugin

0 votes

Hello AudioKinetic,

I'm trying to capture 4 minutes of 3D audio directly from my Unity project. 

My WWise project is linking to unity successfully, I am able to have the MasterBus inside WWise view the game audio while Unity is playing. I have attached the "Recorder" effect plugin to the MasterAudioBus, and have several children buses below it. The issue I'm having is the "GameOutputPath" feature, set to MyGameRecording.wav (following this post: https://www.audiokinetic.com/qa/2469/possible-capture-record-positional-audio-into-ambisonic-file?show=2469#q2469). I actually AM having the .wav files recorded and I am able to listen to them with AdobeAudition, HOWEVER--the MyGameRecording.wav is constantly being overwritten every time a new sound file is played from any of the children buses, instead of one long continuous .wav file from the Master Bus.

I was even trying to modify the recorder plugin--but I also can't find the source .cpp file for the recorder plugin either.

 

Thanks,

Paul

This is standard Wwise Recorder behaviour, unfortunately. Maybe you might have better results with loopback recording from your computer? The last time I had to record high quality gameplay audio, I routed it externally from my PC to a DAW in my laptop through an audio interface :P.
