A little later on in this tutorial we will be importing sound resources, so now would probably be a good time to have a quick look at how to import audio into Flash MX. You will find it in "Using Flash > Adding Sound > Importing sounds" in the contents of your online help. In fact, the whole "Adding Sound" section is probably worth at least a quick glance!

Buttons will play a big part in our media controller. See "Using Flash > Using Symbols, Instances, and Library Assets > Creating buttons" in your help file for more info. Ah, what the heck... spoil yourself: read all of the "Using Symbols, Instances, and Library Assets" section.

Since we will be sharing our controller between all of our audio files, a glance at "shared libraries" in your online Flash MX documentation would be beneficial. You will find it in the "Using Flash > Using Symbols, Instances, and Library Assets > Using shared library assets" in the contents of your online help.

We will also be animating a box-shaped mask. This part of the tutorial is optional, but if you're interested you may want to check out "Using Flash > Creating Animation > Tweening shapes" and "Using Flash > Creating Animation > Using mask layers".

» 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.
