How do the native SDL audio functions work? What do I put in a callback function? Any good tutorials out there on how to use them? They have horrible documentation by the way :\

The native SDL audio functions are very low-level. Take a look at this entry in the SDL documentation for an example of how to use it. I'm not sure if it's a complete example or not. Not much is really done with the raw audio functions, most people just use a 3rd party lib, such as SDL_Mixer or SDL_Sound. Since they are open source, you may want to take a look at those libraries, since they are just wrappers for the SDL native functions. This subject is briefly covered in the book "Focus on SDL". The overall message though is not to use the native functions [wink] Good luck!
