A very useful tool to convert music so you can play it with HL engine or with Source engine

Important!!: All audio files must be in proper HL audio format:
wav file, 8000Hz (HL game) or 11025Hz (Source game) frequency, 16-bit sampling rate, mono-channel
Failure to do this may result in distorted audio and/or game crashing!!
