In flash 5 there is a new feature which seem to be causing everyone problems,this is the attachSound method which allows us to control sound with actionscript.

Why this command?!

Well many people have found that there preloaders dont work properly when using this command, the reason for this is as follows, when using the attachSound methods flash at export places all the sounds which you told to "export as symbol" in the linkage properties on a frame before the start of your movie. Basically this means that those sounds have to fully load before the rest of your movie loads. This makes is impossible to create a preoloader for your movie. The way to overcome this is what my tutorial is about, i hope this will be very useful for many people.

» 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.
