:Stop Sequence: This is a system real-time message which tells the sound driver to stop the current sound. The sound object's signal property gets set to <tt>FFFFh</tt> and the position moves to the loop point, which defaults to the beginning. Drivers allow this message to occur without a delta time, but I haven't seen any examples.
