**Syntax**

**Description**

```
sound(y,Fs),
```

sends the signal in vector `y`

(with sample frequency `Fs`

) to the speaker on PC and most UNIX platforms. Values in `y`

are assumed to be in the range . Values outside that range are clipped. Stereo sound is played on platforms that support it when `y`

is an `n`

-by-2 matrix.

```
sound(y)
```

plays the sound at the default sample rate or 8192 Hz.

```
sound(y,Fs,bits)
```

plays the sound using `bits`

number of bits/sample, if possible. Most platforms support `bits = 8`

or `bits = 16`

.

**Remarks **

MATLAB supports all Windows-compatible sound devices.
