Maybe it IS the way to do it. Sounds promising, anyway. There likely will
be a little glitch in the sound. I'm not the one to ask for ActionScript
stuff, but I know Action Script will return a value for CurrentFrame. Seems
you could constantly write that value from whatever MC is playing to a
variable stored in another existing movie clip. If all your soundtrack MCs
are normally available but stopped in a blank first frame, then your
mouseover buttons (slider) could just TellTarget the appropriate MC to go
to frame number (variable). This is a cool idea you have, please let me
know if you get it working.
