In this add-on, you will create a stinger for your project.

A stinger is a very short piece of music that begins and ends within a few seconds.

Stingers are used to introduce, link, or end pieces of a media production.

You will use a stinger as background music for your studio logo.

Start by adding a sound to your library.

This example chooses a sound from the music loop but you can use sound effects as well.

(calm music)

(upbeat music)

In the sounds tab, use the sound editor to modify your song.

If you choose a music loop, shorten it to match the same amount of time that your studio logo appears on the screen.

Find a section of music that you like in the editor and delete the other parts.

Scratch also has some effects you can add.

Tinker with the editor to find out what you can make.

(distorted electronic music)

If you have a microphone handy, you can even record your own sound.

When you have a sound that you like, add a play sound block to your project under the one flagged click block.

When you test the project, your music stinger will play with the studio logo.

Now it's your turn.

Customize a stinger to add to the project.

Program the sound to play when your studio logo begins.
