Default Windows sound scheme editor

Hi all,

I like to customize Windows desktops, like many of you I would assume, and while there are free tools for nearly every aspect of it, I was never able to find a tool that helps creating Windows sound schemes.

You can use Windows' own sound scheme setup to assign sounds to event, you can even "Save" your sound scheme, but that "Save" is only entering the sound events under a new name into your registry. It is not creating a file of some kind that you could distribute to your friends, along with the sounds, so they can install it on their system.

And when you look at the registry in detail, instead of creating a key per sound scheme, Windows creates a key per event and lists all sound scheme sounds in it. So, that makes it rather impossible to just export one key for your sound scheme. You have to export the parent key, text edit the reg file and delete all keys that are irrelevant for your scheme. What a hassle that is.

One should really think that someone had programmed a free tool for making all that work easy. The only one I know of is SoundPackager by Stardock, but it is not free (30 day time limit) and does not work in Windows 7 64 bit.

Does anyone know of a free Windows sound scheme editor?

The question above actually arouse when I was testing a free online TTS (text-to-speech) service at http://www.ispeech.org/. I decided to create Windows event sound files based on the US-female voice generator they are offering there.

In case you are interested in the sound files and want to test them, here there are:

Nice idea! Thanks for sharing your sound files, the fun/humorous ones are great!
