I know I recall seeing someone (during Katrina last year I believe) posting about their setup, and talking about how they had the capability to play sounds/music (via PC) during their sessions.  I am scouring the web looking for a utility to do this, and do it with some reasonable stability, but have been entirely unsuccessful.  

Anyone got any ideas?  

The program I found was called SoundFX ... I may have gotten it off of Alderon's Tower / OD&Dities or somewhere; in any event, the program kind of sucks, crashes a lot, etc.  

I could just play the music files in WinAmp, but I would like something a little more robust in the interface department...

Thanks in advance for the help!

This program seems to be the thing I'm looking for.  Others might like it as well.

If you just want to play sounds, why not use Media Player?

If you you want to edit and do other things use Audacity, its freeware,  or Goldwave.

If you want to do mixing, then use Acoustica.  If you have "problems" with the latter, I can advise further.

I really like the program I found above, vs. Media Player or winamp, because of the increased functionality over something that is just emulating a stereo player.

I gave it a test run on my game yesterday, and it worked great.  I'm not super great at remembering to turn on the combat music, but otherwise, it works very well.  NWN music to the rescue!
