Heart sounds in Atrial Fibrillation

Hi, my question is whether heart sounds are normal or chaotic in atrial fibrillation.  What might heart sounds sound like when someone is on rate-limiting treatment for their AF?

The same heart sounds and pattern but simply in an irregular pattern. You will not hear an S4 sound in atrial fibrillation as the atrial kick is absent.
