You need to specify your conditions on which each sound will play for example:

Trigger:
The Clock Ticks
Conditions:
isRound and (smallBlind = 100) and (bigBlind = 200) and (secondsElapsed = 2) and (state = 2) and (roundNum > 1)

or

Trigger:
The Clock Ticks
Conditions:
(not isRound) and (secondsElapsed = 1) and (state = 2)

so isRound is the one you are probably needing to enter, notice the first one is true the second false as the second conditions are for a break.

smallBlind, bigBlind and secondsElapsed are straight forward, (don't use secondsElapsedif the trigger is (A Level Starts)

state = 2 (during tournament), = 0 before, = 1 countdown, = 3 end of tournament

With the correct conditions your events will only fire when you want them to

The same ... Descrition,...at the start of break 1 ...Trigger,.. A level starts .... Conditions,... (!isRound) && (breakNum = 1)  or you can set it for a certain time like,.. Desription,..when the clock reaches 5 second(s)  during a break ....Trigger,..The clock ticks ....Conditions,..(state = 2) && (!isRound) && (secondsLeft = 5)  or at the end of break ... Description, ... at the end of break 1 ...Trigger, .. A level ends ... Conditions, .. (!isRound) && (breakNum = 1)

I found that this helped me a lot to understand how events worked.
Stumarr posted some correlated  sounds on the thread. Download them and you can then open them up and see how they work.

Here is the link for the thread

Loads of great sounds  on here as well
