>[ Can the Turtle Beach format be converted for SoundBlaster, etc.?
The sounds that I sent to you yesterday are not specific for Turtle
Beach sound cards. They are just looped wav-files (you can play them
on any wave-player under Windows).
The later models of Sound Blaster AWE 32 have an opportunity to add
extra memory chips to the card. With a piece of software (I don't know
what to use for SB) you can replace one or more of the standard sounds
with the "wav"-files. I replaced mainly the guitars of my sound card,
but that is just my own choice. I added loops to the files, so if you
play them on a sound card, the note will begin with the specific
starting sound of the organ pipe. After that, it will repeat the sound
inside the loop till the note ends.
The starting sound of an instrument makes it recognizable to the
listener, more than the sound of the instrument itself!

my English writing is good enough for you to understand, but it contains
terrible sins to proper writing. ))

[ Your writing is quite correct, Hans. I capitalized "Please",
[ because it begins the sentence, and I corrected the ending of
[ one verb. That's all it needed. Good writing!
[ Jan Kilstra just now wrote to tell me that he played the
[ sound fonts using his AWE32 Sound Blaster. No conversion is
[ needed. -- Robbie
