I’m new to the designer, but i was able to make a mock-up of the "car" engine sound. I can tweak the "rpm" & "load" parameters fine in game. I’m also playing it in our game and able to tweak it’s volume real-time in the game — great!
Now, I’ve got one other sound-event in our game so far, a simple one-shot event that uses one fairly loud sound. I hear nothing. I look at the 3d-position I’m setting in the game and it looks good. I try to make it a 2d sound just to see if I can hear it — still nothing. I even disabled the "car" engine sound that I had running to see if it was stealing the channel(s) of this one-shot event, but that wasn’t the case. Does anybody have any ideas as to what the problem could be?
BTW, I also about 10 others sounds playing that aren’t events using the low-level fmodex calls. I’ve initalized the system to use 32 channels.

That’s the cursor. It represents the value of the currently selected parameter. If the currently selected parameter is the primary or control parameter for a particular layer then FMOD will play any sounds under the cursor at that time.
Hence, when you moved the cursor onto your sound it played.
Looks like it’s ok now. I had to line that vertical marker(event editor) up with the wav file and it worked. Before I streched the wav-sounds left/right boundaries to span the entire space, which I guess cuased it not to play.
Can you tell me the significance of the blinking vertical bar?
