Tone Alert Software?

Concept: A virtual Plectron with easy to modify parameters (tone frequency, alert timing, alert sound, etc.)

I have been looking for a program or a way to create a program for while that simply plays an alert sound and/or puts up a text box window whenever a two-tone or long tone is recognized from line-in audio connected to a scanner. TwoToneDetect is a great program and I use it, however I am looking for something more 'dumbed down' that can run in the background (system tray perhaps) and without all of the bells and whistles. I have limited knowledge of VB, but tried google-ing for different aspects of code (monitor line-in, playback line-in, detecting audio frequency, etc.) in hopes that I could somehow piece something together... No luck. I would love to try to make the project in VB Express, but as stated earlier I am still in the "aspiring code tinkerer" stage. Does anyone have any ideas, guidance, or know of such an animal?

Thanks to everyone who takes time to reply.
