I just looked( and so did Robert C. ) Walter and found no indication that either the NSSound class method, soundNamed:, or its NSSound Delegate method sound:didFinishPlaying: are deprecated. I like soundNamed: because it searches all the usual places for sounds and the delegate method manages the sound playing. I notice Bernie’s code releases the soundDelegate after each playing. Maybe try not releasing it if you know there are potentially several sounds in a row. Brian S.
