Music in the Viewport

Is there a way I can add music to my animation BEFORE I render it? That way I can see how the movements of the character synch up with the sound.

Sure, just add a speaker object to your scene and select your audio track.

Okay, I don’t need to use the actual audio to keyframe anything, so I would just add a speaker, open the music, and then it would play with my animation, right?

It should just work, the audio might be a little rough, but it’s there.
