Sound isn't working for me

general

#1

So i’m trying to write my story and i’m not even far in and i’m trying to put in a sound but it’s saying it doesn’t exist. I’ve been trying for a while and nothings working. This is my script;
INT.WARNING
@pause for a beat
@pause for a beat
@transition fade in black .9
INT.CONTAINSSOUNDS
@pause for a beat
@pause for a beat
@transition fade in black .9
INT.ALARMCLOCK
@musicalarmclock

    NARRATOR
...

Another thing not working is the INT.ALARMCLOCK it’s saying I don’t have the background which I do. It’s not approved yet but that’s not suppose to affect it. I’ve reuploaded the background and changed the name and still doesn’t work. - After about 40min of trying to get the background to work,it works. Smh

The correct command for writing the sound would be:

sound alarmclock (or whatever the name of the sound is.) You can also write ‘music alarmclock’ if you want the sound to continue playing on loop.

Also, backgrounds must be named with a DAY/NIGHT at the end, which is probably why the error is showing up. So it should be

INT. ALARM CLOCK - DAY or INT. ALARM CLOCK - NIGHT

Hope this helps!
