Is it possible to play just one bar of a segment ?

I would like to send an event to Wwise from UE4 to play only one bar of music at a time. (sometime I play the whole track with another event)

Is it possible to pause the music after playing one bar until the next event ?
I know I can obtain this result if I cut my music in separated bars and put them in a playlist but I hope I can avoid this tedious work.

Hey Aline,

Hmm.. You could try to use callbacks. In such case, you could pause the music once entering a bar.

Let us know if it works! :)

Thank you for your answer.
Good idea, alas it does not work, or I do not use it properly: the callback is triggered immediately (the music start on a bar) and the music stops, only a "click" is audible ...

I also thought about doing something with the stingers but a trigger can only start the music...
