Notes:

* Desktop Tracker has a sample name field; this is set to the file's leafname when saved.

** SonorModule samples are internally Acorn µLaw. The module's name is set to the file's leafname when saved.

*** PocketBook samples are always 8KHz, or low quality. When saved, the samples are not converted to this rate.

**** Acorn Replay format is very limited.

All samples are saved in mono format
