In this add on,
you'll add sounds to your story.
You can add sound to many places in your project.
You might add a long musical loop
that plays repeatedly during your entire story.
You could add sounds that play occasionally
throughout your story.
Or you could even write your own music.
This video will show you how to get started
adding any type of sound.
Click on the characters bright and the sounds tab.
Click the play button to listen to a sound.
This sort of project comes with several sounds you can use.
But you can also add a sound from the scratch sound library.
Upload a sound from your computer
or even record your own voice or sound
if your computer has a microphone.
Most laptops have a microphone.
This example we'll add the "Dog1" sound
from the scratch library.
You will use sounds that are right for your story.
Once a sound is listed in the sounds tab,
you can use it in the play sound blocks.
Under the sound menu,
"Dog1" now shows in the play sound block.
The play sound, and play sound until done blocks
have similar names,
but they have one important difference.
The play sound block starts playing a sound,
then moves on to run the next block.
The play sound until done block
waits until the sound plays completely
before it moves on to the next block.
This example uses two play sound blocks,
so the dog and meow sounds
play almost exactly the same time.
The dog sound starts to play,
and the meow sound starts before the dog sound finishes.
If a play sound until done block is used,
the dog sound plays through until the end,
and then the meow plays.
Add play sound blocks to your story
where you'd like the sound to play.
To make a sound or sounds play repeatedly forever,
when the flag is clicked, add a play sound until done block
inside a forever loop under a one flag click block.
Or, use play note and set instrument blocks
to write your very own song.
There are many ways to use sound
to make your project more creative and engaging.
Have fun exploring and adding sounds or music to your story.
Now its your turn.
Use sound blocks lik play sound,
play sound until done, and play note
to make your project more creative.
Add sounds to your story.
