Loop in Flash "set volume" sound object

 i've been using Flash5 's  new feature of sound object.
here i can only use a sound  that plays only once, i want that sound to play in continous loop... like 500 loops etc.  

 just because we don't put the imported sound on frame to use this feature.. we cannot use the conventional sound editor for making loops.  

 i just need a solution to make loops in "sound object> setVolume"  in flash, that controls the sound volume.

any expert tips ???

I added the draggable volume  
the example file is at and named the
same as the other file was

I don't believe there is a way to do this unless you Know the set frame length of your sound. If you do know the set lenghth of your sound then you could have an empty mc that in the first frame has

sound_loop= new Sound();

and in the frame that would be equal to the length of your sound gotoAndPlay(1);

I am testing some ways to accomplish this without the work around.

I will let you know if this can be done


never say never
I got it to work
I have an example file at
called sound_loop.fla
and sound_loop.swf

The scripting is below
Hope this helped


function sound_volume (input) {
     if (_root.sound_loop.getVolume()>0) {
          volume = _root.sound_loop.getVolume();
function sound_attach (loop_number) {
     sound_loop = new Sound();
     sound_loop.start(0, loop_number);
