Play sounds with SoundPool

Play sounds with SoundPool: Android Development Tips
Play sounds with SoundPool: Android Development Tips

To play longer audio files, you can use the MediaPlayer component. But with shorter sounds where the file is less than 1 megabyte in size, you can play the file with SoundPool. This class can load a file directly from assets, so you don’t have to take the step of copying it to a new location. And you can cache the file in memory as an activity starts up so you won’t have any latency the first time you play it. This make SoundPool ideal for game sounds and other effects that have to be played multiple times.
