Hi Graham,

I am working on a simple mobile app that is using the sensors and playback of sound as you are.
Using .m4a is perfect for mobile.

The code to play your sound is:  play tPath —tPath is the full path to your sound file.

My file structure is as follows:
A bunch of iOS related directories (which you can ignore)

I use the following function to build my path to that sound file:

function csi_soundDirectory
     local tPath
     set the itemDel to slash
     put specialFolderPath("resources") & slash into tPath
     return tPath & "/sounds/" & sVehicle —in this example sVehicle contains “lambo"
end csi_soundDirectory
