    “With The SFX Kit, you can examine an individual sound effect right from the editor, and open it directly or save it to your hard drive. It's quick, painless, and saves a tremendous amount of time with a large project. This feature is by far the biggest selling point for me, so my hat's off to Tommy and his crew for making game audio professionals' lives easier.”
