Adding Sound to your Movie
Now that you've imported your sound you can now add it to your movie. Think of a layer as a sound channel. You can have a many as you want and they'll combine when you play the movie. Choose Insert > Layer to create a layer for your sound. Click on the frame you want the sound to start and insert a keyframe. Choose Modify > Frame and select the sound tab in the Frame Properties dialog box. Now choose the sound from the drop-down box.

Advanced: Many designers choose to place their background loops/sounds on a separate .swf file which is then loaded into their main timeline when it starts up. This allow them to stop and start music at will. Short sound fx however are best left in your main movie for ease of control.

Tip: Adding Sounds: Make your sound layer the current layer and drag a sound from your library onto the stage. Flash, in all its magic, will place your sound in the current frame with default settings.

» 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.
