    I've scoured the internet trying to find a program that will open soundedit 16 files under Mac OS X...I recently found some old recordings that I made, and nothing I've downloaded can open them. Part of the problem may be that they have no file extension on them, because Mac OS 9 didn't use them. However, one would think that at least one Mac OS X app would be able to read them anyway...Does anyone know of a FREE application that will read them and convert them to a more modern format?

    Thanks in advance...

    Duff-Man says....not free but $10 shareware is SoundConverter which should can try it out on small files for free but if the files are larger than 500k you'll need to pay. I don't know of a free solution, or at least can't think of one at the moment.....oh yeah!

    I just pulled files off an old Zip 100 disk that I think are SoundEdit 16 files. OS X thinks they are Unix Executable files. Do I need to add an extension, like .NQST, to get it to work?
