Hello everyone I am wondering if you know of any software or better yet device that will automatically play multiple sounds on a schedule every day.

THANKS

Because I am studying the effect of music and sounds on mice. For example in the morning their will be birds chirping, in the after noon there will be classical music. When I give them water there will be a raining sounds. Between afternoon and evening there will be silence. At night there will be a book on take and after that crickets. Finally for about 8 hours during the night there will be silence. I am a bit crazy but what the hell. Any recomendations would be really appreciated. I want it to be completely automated because I have a really bussy schedule. Thanks

Haha that is so cool. Do you actually think the mice will have a reaction to the sounds? My dogs love listening to me play the piano, they curl up under my feet and twitch their ears.

Sorry to go off topic and that I can't help you in your search

Why not just record what you want, put it on a ipod or mp3 player, make a playlist and randomise it, and leave it playing? Would that not work?
BTW I assume these mice will be treated humanely, ie no Westlife!

I want it so that in the morning birds chirp in the evening classical music plays then there is three hours of silence. At about 8pm there will be a book on tape and after that crickets for about an hour. If I randomize these events they will not be played in that specific order. Thanks for your help

Maybe edit the recordings so you have one, long, 24 hour recording with all the sounds in it. So you have the sounds then however many hors of silence which is part of the track?

Thanks for the response everyone that is a good idea. Skips I think I'm gonna use your idea. I was thinking about doing it this way but was woried about leaving the MP3 on 24/7 and I don't know if it would be bad for the batteries for they would be charging all the time.
