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.

(sneeze)

(car horn)

(wind chime)

(water)

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, (animal noises)

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, (animal noises)

and then the meow plays.

Add play sound blocks to your story where you'd like the sound to play.

(horse whinny)

(cat meow)

(dog bark)

(horse whinny)

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.

(upbeat music)

(cat meow)

(dog bark)

(horse whinny)

Or, use play note and set instrument blocks to write your very own song.

(cat meow)

(dog bark)

(horse whinny)

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.
