Is there a quick easy way to beep via DirectSound? I tried making a call to the beep function in Kernel.dll, but its not async. Is there an async beep function in direct sound? Thank you for your time, Arrummzen

You can use the Playsound API which is async. If you just use the default sound is the "beep" sound of an "error"

Thats easier then using directsound even

I ended up microwaving a pizza, so I just recorded the microwave beep as a wave file and im using it.

EDIT: Will I get into truble if I distribute the microwave beep sound I recorded? Is it the intelectual property of the microwave manufacter or something?

Thank you for your time,

No. Unless you have some fancy-pants microwave that plays a melody or some such nonsense... Most microwave ovens simply emit basic frequency beeps - 2kHz, 2.5kHz, etc. You could create identical sounds with any rudimentary DSP chip (we used something like that in an acoustics lab I remember doing in 1999).
