Question Regarding Sounds

I want tot listen to .ale sound files contained within the data\fx\engines folder, but do not have the correct program to open the .ale files. A google search unveiled no answers regarding this (unless Im going blind) and a search of TLR has proved fruitless.

Is there an application where I can do this directly, or is there a decompression application required to put them in a usable format?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

*.ale file are effects NOT sounds, goto C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\DATA\AUDIO\SOUNDS for sounds.

And btw to open a .ale file you have to use an hex editor.
If you want to edit .ales try *Tutorial** Changing ALE Colors
and **Tutorial** Low-tech ALE cloning
