thats something i always wanted to learn but never found any resources does anyone knows any? i mean... the low level stuff not dx or openal, im talking about input/output, frequences,sampling,FM, etc, etc, etc dealing with the hardware and the sound yourself (not like im gonna do it... but just to understand it) well hope that im being clear... since i dont realy know what im talking about either :P thx in advance

If I understand you correctly, you want to learn about the theory behind digital sound and sound hardware? Start with the basic theory of sampling: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shannon-Nyquist_sampling_theorem then read a little about how the actial sampling works in practice: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analog_to_digital_converter and then read how your soundcard works (basically, It's a fancy DAC) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DAC After reading those, you should have enough information to start looking on your own. Sorry for not making links, I don't remember how they are made on this forum right now, and I don't want to go back editing the post.
