Pretty intriguing question you've asked here...one DOES wonder why you
want to convert sound into zeros and ones...?
I can help you convert a sound file into something close...there are
programs that will convert sound files into hexadecimal units and/or
into pixels (each pixel colored according to the value of the
For instance, the beginning of Beethoven's Ninth looks like this:
...and so on (a very l-o-o-o-o-n-g so on....). I wish you could see a
screen shot, because it looks a lot like the data screens from The
Matrix, if you're familiar with that movie. The pixel conversion is
pretty cool too, in a static-y sort of way.
This is one step shy of actual binary (zeros and ones) code, but it's
actually quite a challenge to go the next step, and get these to
actual zeros and ones. I guess there are not many folks with an
interest in viewing the actual zeros and ones, so there haven't been
programs that I can find that allow for such a view.
Would the hexadecimal conversion meet your needs...? If so, let me
know, and I'll be happy to provide the details as an answer to your
