AS3 Sound Effect Class

Something I whipped up for myself in a few minutes.
This cuts down the code I need to play a sound by about 2 lines haha, but I think its pretty useful, check it out especially if sounds in Actionscript 3 aren't making sense for you. =)

FX.as -
package
{
import flash.display.MovieClip;
import flash.media.Sound;
import flash.media.SoundChannel;
public class FX extends MovieClip
{
var sound:Sound;
public function FX (type:Object)
{
sound = new type();
var fx:SoundChannel;
fx = sound.play();
}
}
}

Used like so:
var shot:FX = new FX(gunshot1);

gunshot1 is the class of the sound i want to use, right click your sound in the library (like gunshot.wav), and click linkage. Make its class be something like gunshot1, or mysfx or whatever.
