If I use soundApp (PPC) to convert these, I get something that plays 
too fast, so all I can hear is a little pop.  I occasionally have had 
this problem when trying to convert other old sounds as well.  I assume 
I need to change the sampling rate or the bit depth or the encoding or 
something for this conversion.  But there are many different settings 
to choose from.  I tried a few at random, but nothing seemed to work.  
Any suggestions?
