In this add on, you will add extra music to your dance party so that the user can play different sound effects similar to a DJ.

To get started, select the stage in your project, and go to the sounds tab.

You should already have one sound uploaded to your project.

Now you can choose another sound to play from the audio library.

Click on the events menu and drag out a, when key pressed event block into your scripts area.

Set it to any key you like.

For example, the space key is probably a good key to use.

From the sound menu, pull out a, play sound block, and connect it to your key press event.

Select the new sound that you just uploaded to your project from the drop down menu.

Test it out.

You can save a lot of time by duplicating your block stack and changing the sounds that are played rather than recreating the entire block stack again.

Right click on the top of your block stack and select duplicate.

Place the copy of your blocks next to the original stack.

Now, all you have to do is select the different key from the dropdown menu, go to the sounds tab, and choose another sound to play from the audio library.
