Q.  What is a "stinger" and does AudioSparx sell stingers?

A.  A Stinger is a very short piece of music that begins and ends within a matter of a few seconds. They are not like a music-loop which is made for looping around and a round to create a never ending piece of music. A "Stinger" has a beginning, a middle-part, and an end.  It's not made for looping.  

Stingers can be used for many purposes (splash screens, logos, highlights, underlining a point), but the most common use of Stingers is in the transition between scenes. Every time the story moves from one location to another, we see a little shot of the new location, and the music plays a "Stinger".

AudioSparx does sell music stingers.  Where appropriate, use our full mix and stingers together in the same production, to keep the soundtrack consistent and provide a thread connecting the separate pieces together.
