Import the loop you wish to use into the library. Locate the file in your library, right-click on it, and choose 'Linkage...' In the identifier field, give the loop a name. Replace "your_loop" with the identifier name in the ActionScript above.


Next, create 2 new layers named "Sound On", and "Sound Off". Create a new symbol of the words ON and OFF, and place them in their respective places in the movie.

Create another layer named "Sound Buttons", and create 2 black rectangles the same size as the ON and OFF symbols you just made, and place them directly over the words. Convert these to buttons named 'playButton' and 'stopButton'. This will be your button's hit area. Give both buttons a 0% Alpha fade so that the words ON and OFF are visible.

Test your scene. You should hear the loop begin as soon as the scene loads. The ON button should only respond if the loop is not playing, and the OFF button should end the loop.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
