I''m not a beginner to DX or programming, but I am new to sound programming. I went to the SDK to read up on DSound and DMusic. The problem is that the definition is the same for both: This section provides information about using Microsoft® DirectMusic® to capture and play sounds in applications written in C and C++. Same with DirectSound. So I guess I''m asking what is the difference between the two. I am probably looking to have support in my engine for .wav and .mp3, for both single sound effects and repeating music. Should I learn both, or just one? Thanks for any advice/direction. --Vic--
