You can set a relative volume for this sound, so it can differentiate itself in volume from other sounds in the same group. For example, if this song is in group SOUND_GROUP_SFX, and the volume set for this group is 0.5, you can set a relative volume of 0.3 for this sound to end up with a volume of 0.8. Note that volume will always be between 0 and 1, so if the group volume is 0.3 and you set a relative volume of -0.5, the final volume for this sound will be 0.

On this constructor you must define what group this sound belongs to. When you create an instance of this class, it is automatically added to its correspondent group in AudioManager. Note that there is no default constructor, so it is mandatory to define a group. The group can be any of the constants defined on this class, or any other int of your choice (this will create a separate group).
This method is used internally by Easy2D to set this sound's volume by using its relative volume and the volume set for its group in AudioManager. You don't need to call it.
With this method you can have direct access to Audiere's stream. You really must know what you are doing if you intend to call this method.
|void e2d::audio::Sound::Load||(||char *||filename,|
Loads a sound. The file format can be any format supported by Audiere (http://audiere.sourceforge.net/). You can choose between loading the whole file to memory (recommended for sound effects), or streaming it from the disk (recommended for songs). If you choose to stream it but Audiere can't stream that file, then it will load it entirely instead of streaming it.
|filename||Path of the sound file.|
|streaming||true to stream the file from disk, false to load it entirely into memory.|
|e2d::core::Exception||if the file could not be opened. You may want to catch this exception and handle it, so your program does not terminate if a sound is not loaded (most games run nice without music).|
If Audiere recognizes this sound as "seekable", you may pause it, and you can resume playing from pause with this very method just by calling it again. If the sound is not seekable, or the sound is stopped, this method does nothing.
|void e2d::audio::Sound::Play||(||bool|| repeat =
Plays this sound.
|repeat||whether or not to loop.|
Sets the relative volume for this sound.
|volume||the relative volume.|
Stops playing this sound.
