start sound ()The block will play the specified sound, with no pause to its script
stop sll soundsThe block will stop any sounds currently being played on all sprites and the Stage. Pressing the Stop button will also stop all sounds, but is rarely used as it also stops all the other scripts running in the project.
change () effect by () soundThe options for the Change () Effect by () block's drop-down menu are pan left/right and pitch. The input is for selecting how much the sound will be changed. A positive number will make the sound effect have more effect, while a negative number will make it smaller.

clear sound effectsIt clears any sound effects currently in place. However, it does not stop sound currently being played.
