Hi, I have just finished learning DirextX Audio and have a question concerning loading a file with DirectMusic. The following both load a MIDI file ready to play it. Is there really any difference between the two? DMUS_OBJECTDESC uMusicDesc; ZeroMemory(&uMusicDesc, sizeof(DMUS_OBJECTDESC)); uMusicDesc.dwSize = sizeof(DMUS_OBJECTDESC); uMusicDesc.dwValidData = DMUS_OBJ_CLASS | DMUS_OBJ_FILENAME | DMUS_OBJ_FULLPATH; uMusicDesc.guidClass = CLSID_DirectMusicSegment; mbstowcs(uMusicDesc.wszFileName, &".\\resource\\chrono.mid", MAX_PATH); dmLoader_->GetObject(&uMusicDesc, IID_IDirectMusicSegment8, (LPVOID*)&dmSegment_); dmSegment_->SetParam(GUID_StandardMIDIFile, 0xFFFFFFFF, 0, 0, NULL); ----- WCHAR wcFile[MAX_PATH] = L".\\resource\\chrono.mid"; dmLoader_->LoadObjectFromFile(CLSID_DirectMusicSegment, IID_IDirectMusicSegment8, wcFile, (LPVOID*)&dmSegment_); [edited by - Krakken on August 7, 2003 3:42:26 AM]

DSound plays the file like it''s loaded, you can only do a few things like setting the volume. DMusic gives you the ability to change the instruments and much much more.

Check out the SDK:
DirectMusic->
Introduction to DirectMusic->
"The Power of DirectMusic"

Uhm... they are both DirectMusic.... They can both use the same functions also; just one is longer than the other. I am asking if there is a difference between the two? Or is LoadObjectFromFile() just a built in wrapper of the first method? Thanks.
