SCI Sound Utilities
« on: May 21, 2012, 06:19:48 PM »
I have made a unified GUI for a number of the programs and utilities for creating and editing audio resources for SCI games. You can launch Soundbox, Anvil Studio and audacity from it. The old DOS programs INSMaker and DrTs MT-32 Editor/Librarian are setup to automatically run in DOSBox. It includes MUNT, the MT-32 emulator, though you will need to supply the required ROMs. You can select which MIDI device your system will use from the GUI.

It also provides a GUI for a number of the command line utilities; AddWav, Bnk2Pat, Pat2Bnk, Syx2Pat and Snd2Midi. SBANK is not functional at this point, as I still need to work out the input formats required and the required switches. Midi2Snd is not functional as we do not have a functional 32-bit version, it is not needed as Soundbox can fulfill this need. In a future version I would like to include batch processing.

It has a customizable toolbar that you can drag and drop other items to create shortcuts on it for quick launch functionality.

A nice addition considering there aren't any unified tools for dealing with sound resources.  Great to have all the sound tools launch-able from a single interface & doesn't require finding & downloading each one individually.

Thank you Collector.

New version. This one is much more feature rich. It now includes a fairly complete help file with format documentation and MI's Soundbox tutorial. This version also incorporates Gumby's 32-bit MidiToSound. The installer includes a library of audio resources that can be used in your game.


It allows batch processing. Automatic renaming prevents overwriting. File lists to be processed can be populated by browsing for files or folders or by dragging and dropping files/folders into the lists. Once populated, the lists will display at least file size and in the case of WAV files, it will display # of channels, encoding, length and bit depth. Any file in the lists can be edited, as long as there is an appropriate editor installed for the files type. This can be invoked from the context menu. WAV and MIDI files can be previewed from the context menu, double clicking on the chosen file or from the play controls at the bottom.

This version is customizable. It will retain basic settings. Though the installer will allow you to install Anvil Studio and Audacity, you may choose different WAV and MIDI editors if you have others that you prefer. To the right of the toolbar is a launchbar that you can drop programs, files or shortcut on for quick access to these files and programs. You can manage the launchbar from the context menu or from Tools > Options, where you can set a number of other preferences
