The addCue() function is an inbuilt function in p5.js library. This function is used to trigger some specific task in every specified time at some specific point of loaded audio which is playing.

var sound;
function setup() {
    // Initialize sound 
    sound = createAudio('song.mp3');
    // Playing the sound;
    // event define after specific time of audio
    sound.addCue(5, geeks);
    sound.addCue(10, pse);
  //event that will occur in 5 sec
  function geeks(dur) {
    alert('addCue function running');
