i found some source code on playing sounds. (i would just use playsound but i want to be able control the volume and pitch of the sound) i pretty much just copy and pasted the example code and add a struct to it. the example program works but this doesn't.
//your going to need winmm.lib as well
#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <mmsystem.h>
#include <malloc.h>

struct sound
	// Name of the WAVE file
	TCHAR* WaveName;
	// WAVEFORMATEX structure for reading in the WAVE fmt chunk
	// file handle for open file 
	// subchunk information structure for reading WAVE file
	MMCKINFO MmckinfoSubchunk;
	// Count of waveform data still to play
	DWORD WaveDataPlayed;
	// Handle of opened WAVE Out device
	// The size of each WAVEHDR's wave buffer
	DWORD WaveBufSize;
	// 2 WAVEHDR structures (for double-buffered playback of WAVE)
	WAVEHDR WaveHeader[2];
	// Ptr to last WAVEHDR played
	WAVEHDR* LastHdr;
	// Event used by callback to signal main thread
	HANDLE Event;

sound* sound_hold;
int sound_num,current_sound,playing_sound;

void num_sound(int num)
	sound_hold=new sound[num];
