Chapter 15. Sound > Sound Sampling

Sound Sampling

If you're lucky, you have a keyboard or synthesizer that has every sound effect you could possibly imagine at your fingertips. But the majority of us don't have this luxury, so let's improvise. There are numerous sources out there for you to capture the exact sounds you're looking for. One source is right within Flash, in its Common Library of Sounds. You can access these sounds by selecting Window, Common Libraries, Sounds from the top drop-down menu. Also, several Web sites offer sound clips, loops, and effects available for download. Once you have your arsenal of sounds, you must consider certain factors before making it a part of your Flash document.

Sampling Frequency

Always consider what is the optimal usage for your target audience and published format. If you're working on a CD-ROM–based application, for example, you're not too worried about file compression because a CD-ROM medium can store a lot of information. However, if you're working on a Web site, you want to keep your file size down to minimize download time.
