DESCRIPTION

You can think about the SDLx::Sound at 2 approaches.
A simple sound or
The sound of your game or app.

Your application will say what the best approach.

In a taste that resembles to perl and to SDL, our SDLx:Sound hooks at SDL::Audio and SDL::Mixer with a graceful and simple interface that can offer to monks a modern perlish way to manage sounds.

An SDLx::Sound object can load sounds from filesystem, play it, adjust this loudness level or stops the sound.

Each sound will play in the next available channel, so it can be handled isolately.
