You can do in FunSqueak 4.6 alpha, also listen .mp3 and play the old Heads
See first video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKDUP9xQY4c
Still fighting with very old issues as MorphicWrappers load but can't work
as previous FunSqueak 4.2.
Anyway I upload complete image and Cog3060 for mac with all same plugins as
Squeak 4.5 All in one this weekend.
