sounds like a cool tutorial, haven't seen it though.
I think to synchronise the sound, what i do, is bring up the properties panel for the frame in which you wish to put the start of the sound, then where it says event, change that to stream.
hope thats wat u wanted

Because Flash can't read audio amplitude directly you must pre-process your audio to extract the amplitude (and audio spectrum data
if you want it) in another application. There are different programs that do that. The one that I use is Swift MP3 from
http://www.swift-tools.net/ The trial version lets you do the first 30 seconds of an audio track. The output swf contains the mp3
and a track of spectrum amplitude data. You can load and use the swf as it is or extract the spectrum data from the swf.
