Play a range within an audio asset

Intermediate Programmer

You can have Stride play only certain portions of an audio asset. This means, for example, that you can create multiple samples from a single audio asset by specifying different ranges in different SoundInstance objects.

Loop points

You can use the following properties, methods, and structures:

Property, method, or structure Function
TotalLength The total length of the sound.
SoundInstance.SetRange(PlayRange) Sets the time range to play within the audio asset.
PlayRange Time information, including the range's starting point and length.
SoundInstance.Position Gets the current play position as TimeSpan.

For example:

//Assume sample length is 5 seconds.
var length = mySound.TotalLength;
var begin = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(2);
var duration = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(2);
mySoundInstance.SetRange(new PlayRange(begin, duration));
