This is a soundset based on the American folk song, "O Shenandoah".

"O Shenandoah, I long to hear you,
Away you rolling river,
O Shenandoah, I long to hear you,
Away, I'm bound away
'Cross the wide Missouri."

It is lightly scored on clarinet, with touches of flute and bassoon.

This soundset, like my others, is a compositional experiment for me. I've designed it to express a unified musical theme while also remaining simple and functional. The alerts are encoded with AAC at 128 kbps.

The sounds activate on the following events: Connect, Disconnect, Contact Sign On, Contact Sign Off, New Message Received, Message Sent, Message Received, Error, File Transfer Request, File Transfer Begin, and File Transfer Complete.

Please, if you're going to dock this soundset's rating, leave a comment of constructive criticism on how I can improve it.

Caveat: The Connect and Disconnect alerts weigh in at about six seconds apiece (not including reverb decay). That's usually too long for me personally, but some people have noted in the comments on other sets that they actually prefer them longer.
