Triggering music / sound effects via animations.

I don't think Webflow has any official support for music files, which is a shame because it can add an extra layer of immersion when designing websites. It would be fantastic if you could hear little blips and bloops when navigating throughout a site.

    Yes - I'd love to trigger sounds.

    My background is in animation/motion design. Lotties, triggers, animation timelines etc in Webflow has opened up a world of opportunity, but it would be even more awesome if I could trigger an audio file, for instance, when a Lottie triggers it's playback.

    Let’s say that I want to create motion graphics that will react to the beat of a song. There are a number of ways to do this. The first idea that comes to mind is opening up the waveform and animating using the peaks and valleys of the song as a visual reference. Another method would be to listen to the song and add markers on the fly, animating attributes at the marker points. Both of these techniques have something in common — I’m spending a lot of time manually adding keyframes.

    The idea of combining sound with animation is a great idea. I have tried adding a few audio files to my website once
