Hello Audiokinetic,

I am attempting to play an Audio Event from the PS4 gamepad speaker in my UE4 game. How do I achieve this?

Hi Johann,

There's some work to do on the code side of things, but in the Wwise project, you need to route these sounds to the Master Secondary Bus or child bus.

Note: Due to different latencies with the PS4 controller and various consummer receiver/TV setup, a best practice is to not send the same sounds to both output.

Check the information in the SDK documentation (C:\Program Files (x86)\Audiokinetic\Wwise vXYZ\SDK\Help), in the page Sound Engine Integration Walkthrough » Integrate Wwise Elements into Your Game >> Integrating Secondary Outputs.  Also, there is an example in the IntegrationDemo (in SDK\samples), in the MotionDemo.cpp file.
