Understand Al. Most of the time when I'm using them, I only want snippets of 10
to 15 seconds, so I import them into SoundEdit16, edit them and save them as
numbered Resources that I can then Play with SOUND "NoX", selected "pseudo"
randomly. They are still big - no - huge, but I wasn't aware there might be a
more efficient way to do this until an hour or so ago. Although, I just may be
that "idiot" for which Derek says his MIDWorld is "proofed". We'll see!

I do save them as .WAV files for use with my Visual Basic Versions. There they
have a series of API calls, one of which is PlaySound (blah, blah) which I have
to admit are quite versatile. Of course they are not Visual Basic Routines,
they are Windows API (Equivalent to Mac ToolBox) routines. All copied from the
Mac - or mostly.

Thanks,
