...If you're learning FMOD or other forms of middleware be sure to set long files (music) to stream and short files (SFX) as loading into RAM. If you try and load a 2 minute WAV file into memory while running the game, things could get messy! 

 

 

I've never heard the term middleware before, is the term common? Is that a type of tool that a developer might expect me to be familiar with?

 

Middleware is a common term for non system libraries, engines, frameworks, etc.

 

Basically anything that isn't part of the OS yet provides you with functionality you can plug into your application is middleware.
