Soundboard is a Java based sound cueing application that will make building and executing your sound designs a snap. A few simple playback, fade, pause, and stop cues can be used to create an elegant design that won't take you more than 10 minutes to teach even the most inexperienced intern to run. Since Soundboard is built in Java, it will run on just about any computer capable of running Java 1.6 or above, which means you don't need to buy an expensive multimedia server to run your designs. And Soundboard supports Ogg-Vorbis and FLAC, in addition to other common file formats. Soundboard is Free software available for download from from Sourceforge:

LW4::Reader is a Perl module that will allow you to read a file created by John McKernon's Lightwright version 4. Lightwright 4 was not available for POSIX compliant operating systems, and this module was designed to make reading those files and extracting key data easier. Since Lightwright 4 has been superseded by Lightwright 5, I have ceased active development of LW4::Reader.
