Hmmm... I see what you mean.  It seems this is only the case with the
Percussion Kit, though.  The other half dozen kits all appear to use .aif
file extensions.  I hadn't played with the Percussion Kit yet so I didn't
reailse the issue there.

What I would suggest is to use some tool to add type/creator metadata to
the files -- specifically, a file type of 'AIFF' -- so that Doggiebox
will properly see them as aiff files.  Renaming them is no good because
the linking mechanism needs them to have the same names in order to work
transparently.  Changing the file type code will work, however, because
once Doggiebox sees them it will link them in your kit by filename.
