sound :

This sound can be described in a variety of ways:

  • a number can specify the frequency in Hz (e.g. 440)
  • a letter gives a note name (e.g. “C”) and sharp or flat can also be added (e.g. “Csh” “Bf”)
  • a filename, which can be a relative or absolute path (mid, wav, and ogg are supported).
volume : float or integer
The volume with which the sound should be played. It’s a normalized value between 0 (minimum) and 1 (maximum).
