DRG files are for iDoser, and they are just encrypted SBG files which are easy to convert back to SBG
This task depends upon

not saying i have alot of knowlegde in programming, but i dont see this as very complicated and shouldnt take too long.
sbagen would be a very handy plugin to have

I also don't see how this could be too hard, since the source code and everything is provided. While it is easy to convert the drg files back to SBG, I found that it's really time consuming (opening iDoser, playing one file, copying the temp file, repeat) though I have about 10 SBG files now. Since iDoser is sort of a rip of sbagen, and is closed source, I'd say make a plugin (or would this be codec?) that supports the SBG files, and maybe include a howto for converting DRG files to SBG (or pointing users to the thinkdigit link). While I don't think it'd be a problem, one thing to consider is that when using sbagen to convert the files to WAV, file sizes can reach over 200 megs, though I don't think it'd be a problem since the file isn't being converted (just wanted to point it out).

I don't know if anyone is working on this or not. But I found another GPL binaural beats program called Gnaural. See [url][/url] for more info. I haven't compared the code for the respective projects. But perhaps this additional resource could help any interested party.
