Can livecode do this?

Hi William,

The short answer is, yes LiveCode can do this.

I created a test for game in which I wanted to
have several sound files play at almost the same time.

I used the Movie Player object.  You’ll want to use at
least 2 players for your project.  One for the background
and one for your segments.  You’ll want to have the sounds
imbedded in your stack so you don’t have any load time problems.

If you search the archives I’m sure you will come across the discussions.

Good luck,

I see no problem with this. But, I would also like to be able to play another audio file as background to the sequence of audio segments.
