as i own the the regular version, i`m not sure about the free version but i dont see any limits here:
construct2 versions
So, i guess it will be working.
--------------
Ok- lets go:
double-click into your layout and choose media--> audio.
then import a soundfile by rightclicking the folder Sounds or music.
I use .ogg-format(which is recommended if i remember correctly). You can download free sounds from the web
free sounds
more free sounds

and use i.e audacity to create or convert ogg-files.
And then connect the audio-file with an action in an eventsheet. i.e system--> on start of layout--> audio--> play.
ItS quite easy.dformer2012-05-19 11:33:52

that's a great help thank you.

Does construct take any audio file or does it have to be a certain type?

Before asking for tutorials, it might be a good idea to check for existing tutorials first.

In the very "A" section you can find "Adding sound, a beginner's guide".
