Master volume slider for linked swf's

Hi!  I have a master swf that has the normal navigation controls...play, pause, section buttons, etc.  I also have separate content swf's that I load into a blank movieclip within the master swf depending on the section button that is clicked.  Each of these content swf's have their own voice-over audio on the timeline...That is important because I timed the animation to the sound.

My question is this...How can I create a volume slider on the master swf that will control the volumes in the content swf's?  I have seen tutorials for volume controls but they all want to load the audio from within the actionscript.  I just need a master volume that will raise and lower any audio that is playing within the master swf file.  Can someone point me to a tutorial or an fla that has already been set up?  Or maybe something that I could modify?

Thanks,
Scott Whitehead

Made this for you .. the master clip loads a swf with music in it and the slide control in the master clip will control all sounds contained in it.. by default all movie sound in the master is controlled by not naming a target for the sound object..

Zeffer,

I cannot download the file.  When I click on the link or copy it into a browser it just sits there.

Zeffer,

Got it.  It must have been a problem with my browser at work.  I will try it out and let you know.

Thanks
