Help with audio

Probably the 24 bit thing.

Try using the player and quicktime and the file as an external source (set
the filename of player 1 to xxxx) as opposed to being imbedded. Quicktime
should properly handle 24 bit audio, but not sure about the native play

If you need to imbed the sounds, then convert and dither the 24 bit files
down to 16 bits with the same sample rate.   Peak, Sound Studio, Audacity,
quicktime should do this. Monkey Tools can do this in batches.

If indeed the internal play command is 16 bit only we should know that.
Thanks for reporting this.
