Getting the Sound Files

Click the green button below to download the sound files used for this project. In the folder you download the file to, use your file explorer/finder to open the zip file and extract the 7 sound files which all have the .ogg file extension.

Loading the Sounds

Plug the FX sound board into your computer via a known, good data USB cable. Your computer should indicate a new removable drive was attached. Using your file explorer/finder, copy the 7 sound files from your downloads area onto the removable drive.
