There is a sneaky way to do it since there is no real way. Use the concept and adjust accordingly.
1. Make your menu exactly how you want it. Don’t link anything yet.
2. Copy this menu as many times as you have songs/samples. (5 songs = 5 menus).
3. Create 1 more menu. This one will serve as "no sound", and probably first play/default.
4. Link each song to there own menu. NOT a button but as menu music. Menu 1 gets song 1, menu 2 gets song 2, etc.
5. Link the buttons to the correct menu. Example, if button 3 is pressed, it jumps to menu 3 and song 3 plays. Do this on all menus.
6. Set your end action for each menu. This can be different depending on what you want. If you want them to play one after each other, set the end action to the next menu. If you want the music to stop, set it for the menu with no sound. You can even add a "stop sound" button linking to the default menu. Or, set the end action to a timeline. That way you hear a quick sound before going to the selected movie timeline.
I’ve used this to create music jukeboxes and it works great. You can navigate through the buttons while a track is playing. You just can’t skip through a track (fast forward).
If there other features on your disc, be sure to include an exit button on each menu.
