SoundAS - A modern AS3 SoundManager
Generally one of the big advantages of using AIR/Flash is that there are a ton of existing Libraries for virtually anything you could wish to do.
One exception is in the area of SoundManagers. There are quite a few existing Libraries out there, but all of them suffer from some pretty serious quality issues. We weren’t happy with what was out there, so we decided to write our own.
A modern lightweight AS3 SoundManager.
The goals of SoundAS are:
- To simplifying playback of your audio files, with a focus on easily transitioning from one to another, and differentiating between SoundFX and Music Loops.
- To provide a strongly typed, performant SoundManager, with a clean and focused API
- To provide an open-source SoundManager in version control, so the community can contribute, and continue to maintain it going forward.

We have also created some docs which you can find here:
Please give it a shot and report any issues so we can mature this quickly 🙂
