How to add Custom Sound in a script?


New member
I want to add a custom sound to a script which I use (got the script from Usethinkscript). I added the sound to the alerts. I can select that sound when I want to add an alert in TOS. How can I add this to the script? I do not see this in the sound drop down?

def bullish2 = signal > 0 and signal[1] <= 0;
plot upArrow = bullish2;
upArrow.SetDefaultColor(CreateColor(145, 210, 144));
Alert(upArrow, "bullish2", Alert.BAR, Sound.Custom1); (I am not able to add this Custom1 sound)

Any help is greatly appreciated
I looked around and didn't see this specifically addressed. With normal alerts you can set custom sounds however how would I code that custom alert sound into the indicator.

def AlertUp = upCount==1;
def AlertDn = dnCount==1;

Alert(AlertUp, "Cross Up!", Alert.BAR, sound.CustomAlert1);
Alert(AlertDn, "Cross Dn!", Alert.BAR, Sound.Ding);

So to be clear.... custom mp3 sounds cannot be added to a study for when an indicator is triggered on tos desktop? I have many indicators running and i wanted to differentiate them with multiple alert sounds
