For this particular case if you are going to play your sample only once, 
remove the "loops" part, with loops Audio.Infinite the sample will loop 
indefinitely until the playback is stopped.

As to just playing short samples, SoundEffect is better suited to the 
task. SoundEffect unfortunately doesn't accept flac files as source, 
you'll need to use wav instead, but as the samples won't be long anyway 
it's not that bad. Using SoundEffect the above code part would be 
something like

     SoundEffect {
         id      : whipSound
         source  : "qrc:/sounds/resources/sounds/whipSound.wav"

This sounds like a bug (which I couldn't reproduce when quickly testing 
(as you described it). I only saw that trying to play 1 second long flac 
with Audio always failed, raising the length to 4s and the sample played 
fine. Something is wrong anyway so I'll investigate more.
