My main reasoning for wanting to have all sounds muted except addons sounds, is simply because I prefer to play this way sometimes.

As for your other comment in regards to CascView etc. I have been there done that. Not to say I am an expert but simply I have followed guides that have been provided for laymans.

For some reason the names that are provided in CascView for the .ogg files can't be representing the actual name of the files. Maybe because the listfile provided needs to be updated? I know that current listfiles have a 90% success rate at providing accurate named files. However recent patches/hotfixes may have an influence on the changes.

As a prime example, Cobra shot from a hunter would normally be represented as shown below via a CascView;

World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_hu_CobraShot_Impact_06.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_hu_CobraShot_Impact_05.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_hu_CobraShot_Impact_04.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_hu_CobraShot_Impact_03.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_hu_CobraShot_Impact_02.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_hu_CobraShot_Impact_01.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_hu_CobraShot_Impact.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_HU_CobraShot_Cast_06.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_HU_CobraShot_Cast_05.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_HU_CobraShot_Cast_04.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_HU_CobraShot_Cast_03.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_HU_CobraShot_Cast_02.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_HU_CobraShot_Cast_01.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\Spell_HU_CobraShot_Cast.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\SPELL_HU_CobraShot_Missile_Loop_04.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\SPELL_HU_CobraShot_Missile_Loop_03.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\SPELL_HU_CobraShot_Missile_Loop_02.ogg"
World of Warcraft\Sound\Spells\SPELL_HU_CobraShot_Missile_Loop_01.ogg"

I have tried inserting these into the "sounds" folder generated by "Mute Annoying WoW Sounds", of course I made sure they were in the correct directories and were dummy .ogg files.

So I thought maybe I could just do a process of elimination, by viewing the MD5 hash codes and just grind through it and try and find the hash file names. But to be honest I wouldn't know where to begin on atempting that.
