Possible Variations

  • Now you need to create 2 keyframes for each variation of your loops. In this tutorial, I create 8 variations, and this is how they are laid out:

  Track 1 Track 1       Track 1 Track 1  
Track 2     Track 2 Track 2 Track 2 Track 2   Track 2
Track 3 Track 3     Track 3 Track 3 Track 3    
    Track 4 Track 4 Track 4   Track 4   Track 4
Track 5       Track 5 Track 5 Track 5 Track 5  
    Track 6 Track 6   Track 6 Track 6 Track 6 Track 6

As you can see, you can make up to about 72 different permutations with these 6 small loops. Again these loops don't have to be the same length (or duration), but they have to play at the same speed. Now back to the keyframes:

  • Why 2 keyframes: The first keyframe is to set the previous sound file to stop before starting to play the next one. The second keyframe contains the actual sound as a Start event.
  • Still in that first keyframe, go to the Sound tab and add the appropriate sound for that layer (if your on layer 1, add your sound 1). Make it a Stop event.
  • In each second keyframe for each pair of keyframe, set the sound you want to play (one per layer) to Start Event and make it loop 999 times, putting a STOP action in the Action tab.
  • Repeat this operation for each layer.
  • Insert a new layer and drag it to the top. Create a keyframe for every keyframe on the other layers. So for each first keyframe of each pair of keyframes (where the stop sound event happens), insert a label for that loop (You can call it Loop1, Loop2, Loop3, etc.)

» 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.
