The FOXPRO digital game calls mentioned above all feature some form of sound storage mechanism. Each device is capable of storing a certain number of sounds. The following chart will show how many sounds the units arrive from the factory with and the maximum sound storage capacity:
|FOXPRO MODEL||FACTORY STANDARD||MAX SOUNDS|
|FURY GX7, FURY-2||100||500|
|PRAIRIE BLASTER, PRAIRIE BLASTER 2||100||500|

Step 1: Select the Sound Pack
There are four sound pack options available. You can purchase a 4 sound pack, 8 sound pack, 16 sound pack, or a Bob Aronsohn sound pack. The Bob Aronsohn sound pack is the only one that you cannot configure as it comes standard with 10 crow sounds. The 4, 8, and 16 sound packs each give you the ability to pick out the individual sounds for the package.
Step 2: Select Your FOXPRO Model
After selecting the sound pack, you will be asked which model FOXPRO game call you own. This is a crucial step as it ensures the files are prepared in a format that is compatible with your game call. There is a drop-down menu on this screen from which you must select your model.
Step 3: Customizing Your Sound Pack
The sound selection page displays all sounds that are available, sorted by the category. To the left of each sound is a check box. Use the check box to mark the sound as part of your sound pack. There is a counter at the top of the page that shows you have many sounds you have selected. You will be alerted if you pick too many or too few sounds. You must pick out all sounds at the time of order. For example, if you purchase a 4 sound pack, you must select all 4 as you cannot go back later and pick out the last sound.
Step 4: Cart Review / Pre-Checkout
The next page shows the contents of your shopping cart. The sound pack should be the only thing listed along with the selected sounds and price of the package. If satisfied, click on "Checkout" to continue.
Step 5: Sound Pack Checkout
If this is your first time purchasing sounds, you will get a screen that says "Account Update Required". It will request the serial number for you game call. To checkout, you must enter the serial number for you unit. You will also be prompted for your credit card number. Enter both of these items as requested. Upon satisfying these requirements, you will see the license agreement for use of FOXPRO sounds. If you agree to the terms, click on "I ACCEPT". Otherwise, you will not be able to checkout.
Upon clicking "I ACCEPT", the store will try to bill the credit card number you provided. If successful, you will see a screen reflecting success. If there was an error in processing your credit card, the error message will be displayed describing the problem.
After successfully purchasing a new sound pack, you can begin the process of downloading it to your computer. There are two options available for downloading sounds to your computer: 1) You can download all sounds at once in a compressed zip file or 2) You can download each sound individually. Both methods will be discussed.
Step 1: Access the Sound Pack Download Manager If you have just completed purchasing a sound pack,
click the link on the page that says "Sound Pack Download Manager". You can access the Sound Pack Download Manager
any time after logging into your user account (On the upper-right side of the screen you should see a gray box with
a link that says "My Account". After clicking on "My Account", locate the "Download Manager" button on the left side of
After clicking on the Download Manager, you can see the list of sound packs you have purchased in the store. The interface is fairly easy to use. The options are "View Files" and "Download Now".
Option 1: Download Now
Depending upon what web browser you are using, the exact process for saving this file to your computer may vary. Immediately after clicking on "Download Now", your browser may prompt you to specify a location on your hard drive that you wish to save the file into. On Windows PC's, most web browsers default saving location is "(My) Documents -> Downloads". You can choose to save the file in the default location or save it to your desktop; whichever is the easiest.
Do not try to save the compressed sound pack file to your game call or memory card! This will not get you the results you are looking for. The compressed file houses the individual sound files. When the compressed file is opened, you will see the actual sound files within it. These files must be moved from inside the compressed zip file and placed into a central sound loading point. If you have the Programming Utility installed on your PC, move the sound files from the zip file into the Documents -> FOXPRO -> Sounds folder. Otherwise, place them into a location on your hard drive that is easy for you to access.
At this point, you can move on to the next section. Otherwise, if you are downloading the files individually and not using the FOXPRO programming utility, continue reading this page.
Option 2: View Files
For those of you using a Mac or who do not wish to use the programming utility, you have the ability to save sounds directly into your FOXPRO game call or associated memory card.
Limitations for this process are going to be dependent upon the model of FOXPRO game call that you are using. For example, users of the XR6, FX3, Spitfire, and Snow-Crow Pro (SC3 version) will more than likely want to avoid this section. Those particular models come from the factory programmed with their maximum number of sounds. To load new sounds into those models, you must first delete an equal amount of sounds to make room. This process is recommended for users of units that have a higher sound capacity than what they come from the factory with. For example, the FURY GX7 comes with 100 sounds and can hold up to 500--therefore, you would not need to remove any sounds to make room for new sounds.
