Maybe this will help. It's from the SIM Read Me file.

Sound Files
Sound Icon Maker accepts both System 7 Sound and AIFF sound files.
However they must meet the following requirements:

1) Uncompressed sound samples
2) Monophonic (single channel)
3) 8 or 16 bit.
4) Standard sampling rates of 8000Hz, 8012Hz, 10800Hz, 11025Hz, 11127Hz,
21600Hz, 22050Hz, 22254Hz, or 44100Hz.

Note that 21600Hz is the default sampling rate on MessagePad 2000s, and
will optimally be played back. 10800Hz is the default and optimum
sampling rate on the eMate 300s.

I hope this helps.
