The SWF File

Now you can decide to layer these loops in different ways. Here's an example:

Loop #1 can be made up of a

  • drum loop,
  • a bass loop
  • and a keyboard loop.

Loop #2 could be made up of

  • the same drum loop,
  • a guitar loop
  • and the same keyboard loop.

And so on. This involves making 3, 4, 5 or more small loops, but put together in different arrangements, they become more complexe and they keep a certain unity within scenes.

Now how can you organize this in Flash? Well follow these steps:

  • Import all your sound files in Flash.
  • Create a movie clip symbol.
  • Add a blank keyframe with the Stop action in the first frame.
  • Create as many layers in your movie clip as you have loops imported in your presentation. In this example, we'll say 6 (as shown in this image). This will give you a good variety.

» 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.
