Sound Problems in Action Script 2.0

Hi,

I am coding in Action Script 2.0. For some reason in the code below the sound file only plays once, but it should keep on sounding.

sKick = new Sound(_root.kkSound_mc);
sKick.attachSound("kickRock");
Beat();

public function Beat(){
            clearInterval(beatID)
            beatID = setInterval(Beat, 100);
            sKick.start();
            //trace("beat="+ sKick.position)      
      }

When I trace the sKick sound in the function in is undefined after the first iteration - why does sKick disappear?

Hi waffe.

You seem to be clearing an interval ID that doesn't exist. Also, the looping structure you're setting up is what's causing it to only play once.
Try something like:

var sKick = new Sound(_root.kkSound_mc);
sKick.attachSound("kickRock");

var beatID = setInterval(Beat, 100);

public function Beat() {
    sKick.start();
    //trace("beat="+ sKick.position)    
}
...

Keep in mind that you're going to be calling Beat() every 10th of a second. If that's what you want, that's cool, but I'd consider larger values for setInterval.

Cheers
