# Sound

 Sound[primitives]represents a sound. Sound[primitives, t] specifies that the sound should have duration t. Sound[primitives, {tmin, tmax}] specifies that the sound should extend from time tmin to time tmax.
• Lists containing the following primitives can be used:
 SampledSoundFunction[f,n,r] amplitude levels generated by a function SampledSoundList[{a1,a2,...},r] amplitude levels given in a list SoundNote[spec,...] a music-like note Sound[prims,t] a sound scaled to have duration t Sound[prims,{tmin,tmax}] a sound played over the time interval tmin to tmax
• Primitives with duration specifications are played consecutively in sequence, independent of primitives with explicit time specifications.
• When primitives prims appear in Sound[prims, tspec], the sequence of durations and time specifications in prims are rescaled and shifted to fit into the time interval defined by tspec.
• For the outermost Sound object, times are by default taken to be given in absolute seconds.
• For inner Sound objects, times can be given as Scaled[r].
• Sound[prims, Scaled[r]] will slow down prims by a factor r.
• Mixed into lists of sound primitives can be the following SoundNote directives:
 "style" use the specified style opt->value use the specified option setting
• The possible styles and options are those for SoundNote.
• Nested lists of sound primitives and directives can be given. Directive specifications normally remain in effect only until the end of the list which contains them.
• A list containing only graphics directives is treated as if its elements were directly inserted into an enclosing list.
• Style[obj, opts] can be used to apply the options or directives opts to obj.
• Sound[...] is displayed in StandardForm as a button containing a graphic representing the sound. Clicking the button plays the sound, preempting any other sounds that are already playing.
• In InputForm, Sound[...] is displayed as an explicit list of primitives.
• The option SoundVolume->v specifies an relative sound volume v for a note.
