: The overall idea is: Make a dump of the whole card with CardWizard, then import the dump into a sample-editor as 'raw-Data'.

: The process might work like this:
: A) Make a card dump via CardWizard
: B) Load into CoolEdit with 16-Bit, raw-Data and Motorola-format, maybe 22050 samples/sec
: C) Locate, identify, copy and save all recognizable samples
: D) Load again into CoolEdit, now as Intel-format

Hi everyone,
I'm afraid, but this is not possible with QCW (at least in its current version), as QCW does not save the raw card data, but instead the SysEx sector write commands containing it. What this means is that a) you have non-sample-data every now and then (every 1181 bytes to be precise) in the middle of the samples and b) that, as SysEx data bytes need to be seven-bit, the seven card data bytes are stored in eight SysEx bytes and saved as such by QCW. As it is coded this way, it will most likely sound heavily garbled if at all recognizable when played as 16bit mono sample.
Perhaps, if I have the time to do so, I will implement saving data in raw format in a later revision. Then your idea should work.

Hope this helps
