[Clip] Re: [NTB] Sounds - my conclusion so far
- Hi Brenda,
>This stuff must be special for clip users...ok. I dig.Yes, once we get beyond clip generalities and start posting clip code, then
it has to be on the Clips list. If Jody sees even one command or function on
the Basic list, watch out for his wet noodle!
>^!Sound FileName (or Windows sound)OK, here we go! (Watch me, who's never done sound before, tell you something
screwy! haha) Anyway, here's a real sample line:
If you go to the Sounds directory under the NoteTab directory, you may just
find a few wave files. I've got 30, don't remember from where, probably Jody
and Nicole. Obviously this is a convenient place to store more sound files.
Anyway, the ^$GetSoundPath$ function returns the full path of the Sound
directory, including the last back slash, so all you have to do is append
the name of the sound file.
To add the code (and there are several ways, but here's one):
1. Find and highlight (select) the clip you want sound added to.
2. Shift+Ctrl+E (now you're in the clip editor; notice the document tab says
3. Type your sound command in the desired location within that clip. I would
think at the end, or perhaps before some prompt, etc.
4. Notice the "Clips" tab turned red (default color). So when you're done,
just save the usual way (e.g., Ctrl+S). (Actually, you really don't have to
yet, but you will eventually so may as well do it now).
5. Exit the editor via your preferred method of exiting documents (e.g.,
Ctrl+F4 or Shift+Ctrl+E again)
6. Run the clip and test.
Let me know how it works!

This will play kookoo, open a gif of Eric, and take you to my
