Hello, I have been experimenting with the Allegro game development package and I had a question about playing MIDI files. When I listen to them in Windows they sound great, but when they play in my Allegro-made game, they sound terrible. Are Windows and my game using different MIDI players? If so, how can I get my game to use the better one? And most importantly, how can I ensure that my game will use my users'' best player. Thanks, Rob

With Allegro when you call:
if you are calling DIGI_AUTODETECT,MIDI_AUTODETECT); try using different sound devices. If you are using the different sound devices the try calling the above.
