Neither do I want to play door bell jingles (even if for the only
reason is that I have a cheap Chinese doorbell replete with seven
nauseating jingles I can listen to to my heart's content).
However, on my computer I have a Hypercard stack called "Folk Tunes",
it is referenced here:
(although that website seems to have 'gone' as I write)
and it does something considerably better than "the rape of
the moonlight sonata" as performed no my Doorbell.
I don't know whether there is copyright outstanding on this stack;
if I found it was FREE I would pop a zip of it on my website.
Now, as we all know; HyperCard only works on an out-dated, half-defunct
operating system, on out-dated, soon-to-be-defunct computers. If that
were not the case I would not be letting it rot in a dark and forgotten
part of my archives.
Embedding music files in RunRev / MetaCard stacks comes at quite a hit,
both in terms of file size, and RAM requirements; the HyperCard method
would be considerably 'cheaper' in both of these respects.
