Is it like you want to replace music in the Sims 3 with a custom track? Isn't it better just to put some MP3s into the CustomMusic folder and play this station?

I gotta agree, not just for keeping genres together but also for community lots. If you have a lot that plays a specific station, and you want it to play your custom music, it would be nice to just shove your tunes in the respective station and be on your way. And sometimes, you just want to listen to one particular type of music anyway, and having them, all in the right station just makes it easier to listen to that band, or that album or whatever.

Having more options to do anything can be a good thing, despite if half the users have no reason for it, the other half do.

@texter241, why do you want to decode them? They carry no sound data.

@Wojtek Do they not? Based on the name of the files, some of them should have voice audio in them.

@texter241, _SNS and _SNR files have audio. Depending on the way they're coded, they come in different combinations. The most common one is a SNR file, which contains audio, with an AUDTUN. Short sounds are usually coded this way. You can also have a SNS, SNR and AUDTUN files. In this case a SNS file contains audio data, a SNR file somewhat "points" to SNS. It's possible to replace SNS and SNR files with custom sounds. See page 4 of this thread.

I did read through the whole thread a few times before.
But there are some AUDTUN files that follow the same naming pattern as SNS and SNR files that contain voice audio. For instance, one of the SNS files I've converted to .wav is named this: S3_01A527DB_001407EC_00C5929C3C4C71E1_vo_bed_talk_listenaA_fa22%%+_AUD. The two letters and numbers before the percent indicate that it is a voice file, and which voice it is. b=baby, p=toddler, c=child, m=male voices teen--elder, f=female voices teen--elder. a--c is voices a, b, or c.
Knowing this allowed me to know which SNR and SNS files I needed to convert to .wav files. But there are AUDTUN files that follow the same naming pattern, so it really seems like there should be voice audio in there. For instance, one of the files is named: S3_8070223D_001407EC_82D1F5AB32CAE95A_vo_btrap_toilet_trc_cb%%+AUDT. So it should have a Child Voice B file in there.

No, AUDTUN files (Audio Tuners) seem to contain some properties of SNS and/or SNR files they reference to, but no audio as such.

I know it is an old topic, here's what I found, once you export the file, use a Hex Editor to modify the first 2 digits to be "00" and save it.
And this worked for me.
