SoundDog is a simple QuickTime-based applescript droplet that acts as a sound inspector. It is designed to be placed in your folder toolbar so that you can quickly drag and drop any audio file(s) onto SoundDog's icon to hear playback and view a detailed description of the file.
Download the disk image (288Kb). Mount it on your desktop and copy the application folder to the Applications Folder on your startup volume. For use in Finder Window toolbars merely drag the application icon into the Finder toolbar (hold it there for a moment until it slides into the bar), it will then appear in all (metal) Finder Windows. To uninstall merely command-drag or control-click on the icon to remove it from your toolbars.
Alternatively you can place it in your dock.
For PowerPC computers you will need SoundDog v1.03
Drag and Drop the audio file(s) in question onto the SoundDog icon in your toolbar and it will launch QuickTime to play the file and display its properties.
Click on 'Stop Playback' to halt playback, "Continue" to resume. Click on 'Close this Audio File' to close the display and the current QuickTime transport. If you have dropped multiple files clicking on 'Close' will then open the next file in sequence.
You can also use the QuickTime transport to control playback of the current file.
