Part III: Special Topics > Lingo and Audio Elements

Chapter 18. Lingo and Audio Elements

The background on sound

Understanding digital audio

Importing sound files

Triggering sound

Synchronizing sound

Creating cue points

Points to remember

Digitized sounds aren't easy to integrate into the multimedia mix. That's primarily because they're born elsewhere, in other applications. Once they arrive in Director, they can have dozens of different internal configurations, each of which affects their compatibility and impact on overall performance.

In this chapter, we'll begin by looking at the essentials of working with audio: the dominant file formats, the primary quality parameters, and the different ways in which Lingo can be used to trigger and finesse sound files. You'll learn how to overcome the two-channel sound barrier and how to use Lingo to synchronize audio playback with other media elements.
