Soundboard like App .. Need ideas and HELP!

  • Im trying to make a soundboard like software for desktop. It consists of Sprites with multiple audios per sprite and each audio has a corresponding colored sprite. It will be triggered by touch and keyboard keys.

    Problems I encounter / Questions:

    Q1. With the help of BLACKHORNET I manage to create One Sprite which played 4 audios alternately.

    Now, what will I do if there are multiple sprites with Audios? Sprite NO (4 audios), Sprite YES (3 audios), Sprite blah blah ... etc

    Q2. I created 2 triggers (touch and keyboard) with same events and actions to a Sprite. How will I minify this into a function to make it one trigger only?

    Q3. I created a Sprite with 4 extra colored frames. I want to run them in order. Sprite NO ( 1st press: audio1 - green frame, 2nd press: audio2 - orange frame, etc)

    I tried using object clicked set frame as choose(1,2,3,4). It only chooses the frame randomly. I want to make it in order. How? Also how to make it work with touch and keyboard..

    this is my sample capx:

    drive.google.com/open ... 0xmT1lkU0k

    I dont have any background of Programming language or whatsoever. Please just bear with me if I cannot truly understand some if not all of your help and explanations. Its better if you could provide me VISUAL samples, Capx samples, etc.

    I can better analyze them that way. Thanks in advance.

  • Q1, not sure I understand

    Q2. check the manual and/or the tutorials for 'function'

    Q3. don't use choose. choose is a command to randomly choose. just put the number you want to choose. for the next one, you could say self.animationframe +1

    I will rephrase my Q's

    Q1. How will play audios by group? like in the image my NO sprite/button is playing the audios under the subfolder NO. how will I code it in my YES sprite/button to play the audios under the YES subfolder?

    Q3. How will I loop the set animation back to frame 1?

    Thanks for the reply ...

    I've switched over to using instance variables, instead of globals. This would be even easier with Families, but here's Yes & No, with multi-triggers, functions, and using an offset to sync the frames & sound names. Each item still counts from 0 to X, but Yes will offset the number to get the sound name. Subsequent buttons would do something similar.

    Wow! It is absolutely perfect! It behaves well the way I want it to.. Thank you so much for the time and patience for fixing my code.
