Here's a method of creating a fast-forward and fast-backward buttons, if you hold down the back button, it'll speed backwards, and the same happens with the forward button, or you can just click a toggle button to just keep going faster. It's very simple, all I used is two extra MCs, in each one there's a delay for a 100 frames (assuming the fla was at 100bpm) before it starts rewinding backwards or fast forwarding.

You can shorten or expand the number of frames to make the delay shorter or longer, and make it rewind or forward faster or slower. The same method can also be used to play a timeline backwards instead of copying and reversing the frames, just create a movie and make it work like forwardRep or rewindRep, with only frames as 100-103 on the timeline. More notes inside FLA. CHECK IT OUT NOW :)

» 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.
