Calling Triggers During Playback

In addition to auditioning this object, you can also select from the list of Triggers to audition stingers. A Stinger is a brief musical phrase that is superimposed and mixed over the currently playing music. In this way you can simulate what is happening at key points in the game when a Trigger calls a Stinger to play over the current music.
