Remaining Layers

Follow the same procedure for the other layers, selecting the corresponding instrument. When you are finished, you should have multiple layers with a different instrument on each layer.

*It should be noted here that the event sync method is preferrable if you want to keep file size to a minimum. The streaming method does not allow Flash to re-use the small component pieces from the cache, but rather, it copies the audio data into each frame. In this example, using the event method thus far would mean about 10 bars of total audio (approximately 20 seconds) to be downloaded (5 layers x 2 bars each), whereas the streaming method would force a download of 160 bars (5 layers x 2 bars each x 16 repetitions). Quite a difference!

» 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.
