Special wake-up sound file
I am hard to wake up, so this is how I cope. I replaced the default sound file with a custom file that starts with one quiet beep, then a pause, then a somewhat louder beep, another pause, etc. Then the loud beeps are connected and get a waterfall effect, then a pause, then the waterfall becomes frightening, and I am awake for certain by then!
(To use a custom sound file, the file needs to be named c:\_dat\alarm.snd. The file must be in ASCII format, and can be created, in the MEMO editor. Once the file is created go into Appointment Book and press (MENU) Options, Alarm-Beep. Then TAB down and select Custom. From then on, whenever an alarm goes off, the beeps that are in the c:\_dat\alarm.snd file will sound.)
Here are the contents of my custom sound file:
t200 v1 k1 o00 l64 d p1p1p1p1p1 v2 gg v3 p1p1p1p1 fffp1p1 o01 fg p1p1 v3 l64 abc p1p1p1p1 c+a+abacadafaeafagaeabagabaga+aa+aa+cegdefceaacee+ ff+gg+aceceacefaced fdfdbcdge o03 abacadabacadbcbdb ebcbdbecdcecfcdcecfcfgfdfafeedeceadeaceaceaceacebdfbdfbdfcegcegceg
There should be no carriage returns in this sequence, just spaces. The characters must all reside on one line. This alarm is in the file WATER.SND.
Here's another custom sound alarm file, this one of the 1812 overture:
K1 T150 L64 O4FF L32A+ O5CDC O4A+ O5C L16D O4A+A+ P16,, L64 O4FF L32A+ O5CDC O4A+ O5C L16D O4A+A+ P16,, L64 GG L32O5CDD+DCDD+DC O4G L16O5C P16,, L64O4FF L32A+ O5CDC O4A+FA+FDF L16A+ T150 K1 L64 O4FF L32A+ O5CDC O4A+ O5C L16D O4A+A+ P16,, L64 O4FF L32A+ O5CDC O4A+ O5C L16D O4A+A+ P16,, L64 GG L32O5CDD+DCDD+DC O4G L16O5C P16,, L64O4FF L32A+ O5CDC O4A+FA+FDF L16A+
It should all be on one long line. This alarm is in the file 1812.SND.
