Chapter 7. Working with Sound and Video > Working with Sound in Flash

Working with Sound in Flash

Adding sounds to your Flash movie can often make or break it. For example, I tend to caution people about using hip-hop and techno music unless their Web sites cater to an audience for which this type of music is appropriate. As another immediate bit of advice when it comes to sound, in a professional development situation, never use the stock sounds. Yes, some are nice, but people recognize these sounds and know they're built into the program, which ultimately makes you a lame-o for using them. Be creative. Create your own sounds and music; if that's not reasonable, use a Flash resource on the Web, such as Flashkit.com, which offers tons of free sounds and music for you to use in your projects—all royalty-free.

You can import three different sound file types: WAV format (most commonly found on Windows), AIFF (a Macintosh format), and last but not least, MP3. The sounds can be either 8-bit or 16-bit and have sample rates of 11KHz to 44KHz.
