Sound problem - four thwacks in a row


#1

So I’m writing a thing where I want word overlays to smack onto the screen in a classic movie manner but two of the four thwack sounds are muted. You can hear the first one and the third one but not two and four. I put some distance between them but it doesn’t help. Anyone knows how to make all four hearable without making the distance between them greater? I don’t want to make it looping by writing it as music either because then it’s too fast.

This is the coding for the sequence

You need to put “sound off” right before the next sound plays.


#3

So, I did that and now you can hear the first thwack and then like a millisecond of of the third and fourth one. The second one is still completely muted and the last two sound like a “th” without the “whack”.


#4

Well it’s kind of hard to do what you’re trying to do with the sounds. You’re trying to have the sounds one after the other with less than a second each. But the same sounds cannot play right after each other like that, because a sound needs to completely play all the way through before the next sound can play. The only way to have the same sound play right after the other sound is if you turn the sound off then play the 2nd sound.

Dang it. Was hoping there was a way to sort of layer them, feel like I’ve managed to do that before but maybe there was more than a second between them then. Thanks anyway!

I’m a genius. Just in case anyone else where to run into this problem.

I fixed it!
