  • Sound Effects and Music Index

    Recently, I made an index for all of the animations available in the INK Style. Then, it hit me: I should do the same thing for sound effects! I hate having to scroll down that long list on the side of the Writer Portal to look for a specific sound. Personally, I've always wanted to be able to just do a simple search for a sound effect that I was trying to find for use in my stories. The Writer Portal does not have a feature like this, so I decided to start this thread to hopefully help people out. Below are all the sound effects and music available on the Writer Portal, in alphabetical order. Certain sections will be cut off, for example: ambient sounds, music, etc. to make that type of sound effect easier to find. Everything that doesn't fit under a specific category will just go under Sound Effects. Please let me know if you think anything is in the wrong category!

    To search for a specific sound effect on the list, you can do CTRL + F on most computers or COMMAND (⌘) + F on a Mac computer to bring up the Find tool. With this, you can type in a keyword to search for a sound effect containing that word on the list.

    Hope this helps

      In your story just type either:

      sound (soundname) -- This will play the sound once

      - OR -

      music (soundname) -- This will play a continuing loop of the sound

      Hope this helped!

      Hello, I've tried what you said, by typing music and then the name I wanted, but when I previewed it, I couldn't heard any music.
      What have I done wrong? Cause he was playing the sound phone_ring, but the music not? Thank you if you want to help me

        read the guides

        usually you use:

        music name_of_music
        sound name_of_sound

        nothing more

    • #11
      should i just type the sound effects?

        Nope, for example you wanted to add "ambient_birds", you need to put it in this format:
        sound ambient_birds
        If you want it to be a music, put
        music ambient_birds

        I have a question...
        I'm currently writing a story and I'm trying to incorporate sounds (baring in mind that this is my first time using sounds).
        When I'm trying to test the sounds on my computer and there are no sounds. I'm not quite sure what's happening. Please help

        (BTW: I have tried testing it out on the Episode App and the sounds are working perfectly fine but sometimes it's not the sound that I want. And it's very time consuming when I have to keep doing that repeatedly. There must be another way...)

          Is the volume up on your computer? Make sure. Also, to test sounds, click the little play button next to the sound under "sounds" on the right-hand side of the portal. You can preview sounds there!

        Is there a way to stop the sound from playing at a specific point in time or do you have to wait until it finishes playing.

          If you don't already have music playing, you can use the sound effect as music and stop it whenever you'd like.
          (music: alarm
          @pause for 0.4
          music off, etc)
