arrow_back Adding Sound

Transcript

In this add-on, you'll add some cool video game sounds and background music to your project.

Start by clicking on the sounds tab.

The android sprite from the starter project comes with a bunch of sounds.

Select one, then click the play button to hear what it sounds like.

I love you.

Some sounds are short, so they are especially good for sound effects.

Longer sounds make great background music.

To add sound effects to your project, open the sounds menu, and drag out a play sound until done block.

Click the drop-down menu in this block, and choose the name of a sound to add.

Click the block to test it out. (program chimes)

Cool, the sound plays.

Add this block to the main code stack in the spot where the sound should play in your program.

This example places the block at the very beginning, right after the when flag clicked block.

Click the flag to test it out.

(program chimes) Great!

The sound plays, then the android starts talking.

Add play sound until done blocks to the different places in your code where you'd like a sound effect to happen.

To add background music that plays while the android talks, drag out a play sound until done block, and select a sound.

Then, place a forever block from the control menu around this block.

Add a when flag clicked block on top.

The two block stacks that start with the same when flag clicked event will run at the same time.

Click the flag to test it out.

(chiming music)

Awesome, the project plays some sweet background music.

Now it's your turn.

Add sound effects to your project using a play sound until done block.

Add background music using the play sound until done, forever, and when flag clicked blocks.
