Creating a Simple Menu Select Sound

Let's create a Sound SFX for a menu_select sound which will be played whenever a menu selection is confirmed. Start first by importing the menu_select file, either using the audio file importer or by dragging and dropping from the source folder into the default work unit.

menu_select sound object

Creating a Simple Menu Select Event

By selecting the Sound SFX and entering the contextual menu we can immediately create a play event for this sound:

Creating a play event from the contextual menu of a sound object

This results in the following event:

Play_menu_select event

The event name Play_menu_select can now be passed to the programmer who will post the event for each time an item in the menu is selected.

Events are triggered by calling AK::SoundEngine::PostEvent()
