    I used Visual Fortran, but no longer have a version that works with Windows8. I was able to write a binary file, that had the numbers, but it wasn't in the correct format for Audacity to read, resulting in some weird-sounding files (which are posted), but not what I believe they should sound like if properly written into the sound file.

    I can’t think of a way to do this that doesn’t involve programming, but it would be relatively simple.

    For instance, in python:

    >>> x = input()
    [user inputs something such as 3.14]
    >>> float(x)
    3.14

    I’ll see if I can write you something a bit more comprehensive.

    You wouldn’t believe how many people are actually like that, chiefly those on forums dedicated to the ‘gear sluts’ and ‘vintage synth’ enthusiasts of the world... (nudge nudge wink wink)

    I suspect most of these boys think that women are only useful for bringing them tea while they play with their hardware anyway. I remember this one thread which featured the not-at-all-sexist comment “What synth is most like a woman? One that’s expensive, unreliable and has buttons that are hard to push!” You’d think Delia Derbyshire had never existed.

    Mind you, tech-headery is hardly restricted to guys — a friend of mine loves to initiate conversation by talking about her favourite software testing methodologies...

    Oh come on, can’t a guy express his love of giving flowers and chocolate to his loved ones without getting accused of being a spam bot? Sheesh...

    I just have a string of numbers. If plotted on an x-y graph, where the numbers represent Y and x is an equal increment, a sine-wave type plot results. Audacity can take raw data files, but they are binary, and I don't know how to write an ascii file of numbers to the binary raw sound data format.

    I believe audacity converts pictures into sounds. What file formats/types does the rest of your dataset include? Movies? Text?

    OK, but where do I click? What's the name of the company? Jeez, half marketing is a disaster, I tell you.

    Mac Operating System Maverick ( 10.9 )

    I would like to add some of these sounds downloaded from here, freesound, to the Mac Alert sounds and Thunderbird "you received mail".

    Also I use Mac Ettore Software Sounds4Fun X ( http://ettoresoftware.com/products/sounds4fun/ ).

    Oh, It would genuinely be good to email in both languages!

    I was going to say:

    "Hi, I was recording some ambient audio in Alnwick Castle, Northumberland, UK and I caught some of your performance when you were there performing as part of the international music festival. It is a really nice atmospheric recording that has the sound of your instruments echoing off the castle walls and the gentle hum of the crowd and children playing. I would like to share this online with the freesound audio recording and sharing community http://freesound.org and I am writing to ask your permission to do that under a creative commons attribution, no commercial use license. I have uploaded a clip to my server for you to hear [link]. I hope you don't mind me asking.

    Best wishes, etc."

    Congrats for wanting to get back on the saddle again btw.
    Have you though about trying Cockos Reaper? It says that the program is only free for 60 days but according to the rest of the world the free version never actually expires. I only mention Reaper because I hear nothing but positive things about the program.
    For a more open-source program I highly recommend 'SuperCollider', but then again, I suppose it's what you are trying to make. Electronic? Acoustic? Rock? ...

    This list may be helpful too.

    Audacity is very popular. I personally don't care for it all unless i'm trying to get rid of background noises on audio samples. Yet, a lot of people do find it useful, so maybe you could give that a try? It's free.

    ^^ looks (errr sounds) like you are into the ambient side of the creative perspective. I can't listen to all your tracks on SC *as I am on a cellphone tethering* but you have some pretty decent stuff from what I can see, will have to check out more of it when I am on an actual DSL smile

    As everyone knows, sound is generated as waveforms of various shapes. There are many natural phenomena that occur as waveforms, such as ocean waves and tides. I have tried to convert data sets associated with these natural phenomena into sound files, but am not a great programmer, and could not generate a correct wav file from the data. When the data is plotted as x-y data, it looks just like a sound file, so I know it is possible to convert the numbers into sound. Does anyone know of software that will do such a conversion? I really don't want to have to learn, or re-learn, a programming language to do this. I looked at the format of wav files but wasn't able to get the data to build into the file in the proper sequence. I hope somebody has done this and can help. Thanks.
