Don't be so sure :)  Remember, I reverse-engineered the Supercharger tapes.  (Even though this fact was doubted by some)  I digitized my Supercharger tapes and wrote a C program that converted the .wav data into binary data (6144 byte images).  I also wrote a program that just spit out a new .wav file from the digitized one, or basically I digitally mastered the tapes :)  I never released this program (and don't intend to) because there really is no practical use for it.
