Controlling the Volume Using the Arrow Keys

Fig. 09: Example of using arrow keys to control volume

If you wanted to control the volume with the right and left arrow keys, the following modifications to the above code could be made.

this.onEnterFrame = function () {
if (myLoopVolume<99) {fadeIn01=1}
if (myLoopVolume>1) {fadeOut01=1}
//Increase Volume with Right Arrow Key
if ( Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT) && fadeIn01 != 0) {
if (myLoopVolume>99) {fadeIn01=0}
//Decrease Volume with Left Arrow Key
if (Key.isDown(Key.LEFT) && fadeOut01 != 0) {
if (myLoopVolume<1) {fadeOut01=0;}

The Flash example in Fig. 09 also allows for the use of the Up and Down keys to control volume.

» 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.
