Adding sound to a flash movie is useful when you want your visitor not to be bored by just surfing the complex 'action scripted' interface of your site. But adding sound is not easy. Just to import a sound into your library and then starting it with AS it not enough. You visitor can easily be annoyed if you don't give him the access to control the sound. I have already added a link to the marvelous sound tutorial by Kenny Bellewin my flash tutorials section. But his state-of-the art tutorial was even unable to fulfill my own needs. So I searched the net for a solution and figured out how to give dynamic effects to my background sound. On this site you can clearly hear how the background sound fades in on start. And then you have a button on bottom of the menu to stop it and to start it once again. While stopping... the sound fades out dynamically. When you play it again... it fades in. And the best part is that no matter how fast you keep clicking the toggle button... the sound works perfectly dynamically... fading in and out.

I have to thank all the folks who helped me on the macromedia online web forums and also on actionscript.org forums. Thumbs up for them. I really believe that as far as folks like them are around... people like me who wanna learn can't go disappointed.

Before getting started with the tutorial and telling you all the secrets to my very own web site dynamism... I assume that you are not a novice in flash and know how to work with action script in xpert mode. If you have just started learning flash... or have worked in it but don't have much xperience with AS... I suggest you go towww.actionscript.org and do some of their basic tutorials... also do Kenny's sound tutorial linked in the tutorials section on this very site and then return back... as you are alwayz welcome!!!

» 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.
