killersound recognizes that Flash can be used as a sequencer or mixer similar to software used by digital musicians to sequence music.

Generally each composition is made up of various elements or components such as bass, drums, melody, etc. Each element is recorded and optimized separately and imported as an individual sound file into Flash. The lengths of these sound files are either identical or in exact proportion of each other. When initiated and looped at the same frame and in their own individual layers, they are mixed together, using the envelope points provided, to create the illusion of an unfolding and varied musical composition over time.

There are three benefits to this method:

  1. The viewer is spared from mindless loops,
  2. The Flash developer retains the creativity and freedom to mix or arrange the elements as desired while minimizing file size, and
  3. File size is kept to a minimum by using Flash's looping capability.

The following instructions are to be used when scoring the individual components or sound files in Flash.

» 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.
