I used simple sound and a Mic to record some stuff and I want TNT Basic to be able to play them. However, I can't figure out how to get them into the sound resources or bank. How do you do this?

Add sound

Hi Douglas,

To add sound, simple choose 'Create new sound...' from the 'Resource' menu while in the sound tab. You should get a dialog to select a sound file in the same way as when importing graphics.

We support a wide range of sound formats, including AIFF, WAV, MOV, SND and a few others (the joys of QuickTime! :)

Once imported, drag the sound to your sound bank and use the 'load sounds' command to load the bank, then the 'play sound' command to play them.

Good luck,

Mark

Thanks

Thanks. Actually, for importing graphics I would draw in Apple Works and click and drag. I noticed you can also do this with sound in the scrap book to the sound resources.


Actually, when I use Apple Works, I use the drawing program. In saves images by overlaying shapes instead of just pixels. When I select some of them and drag to TNT, does it turn them into just pixels or in the program, does it draw based on the shapes?

Apple Sucks

My sound is in Simple Sound documents. TNT Can't use those. I want to use Quick Time to convert to AIFF or something, and you have to pay to be able to do that with Quick Time. Quick Time shouldn't cost, it should be an obligation to be able to convert and clip sounds from Apple.

Does anyone know a good FREE AIFF recorder AND SAVER (it seems like a bunch of these small ass programs cost money or you can't save) or any good FREE converts?

Well,
I don't know about the 'Simple Sound' format, but have you tried SoundApp to convert the files?

To my knowledge this is the best freeware sound converter available:

Ciao, Heiko.

Sound App is Great

Thanks guys. It Sound App can read System sound files and convert them for me. I also remembered I had updated QuickTime to Pro on one of my other computers for "free".

sound effects

While we're on the subject does anyone know where I can get good sound effects without a microphone, websites where they are downloadable, preferably royalty free, for example?

.WAV help

I'll look @ those thanks. I have found some sounds in quicktimes .WAV format, but TNT Basic does not appear to let me import these as sounds or music, do I have to convert them, or is there something I'm missing?

WAV files

Hmm... I can import WAV files no problem on my machine? Maybe it's because I have a registered or newer version of QuickTime than you?

Try opening the files in 'QuickTime Movie Player'. If they work, the file types may be wrong or something...

Anyone else had anyproblems with sound importing?
