Whats the deal with DirectMusic?

Recommended Posts

I haven't made much use of DirectSound or DirectMusic but the last thing I remember hearing was that they were merged into DirectX Audio similar to how Microsoft dropped the distinction between 2D and 3D and created DirectX Graphics. I just opened up the help file from the June '06 DirectX SDK and it doesn't have a section on DirectMusic, only DirectSound. Yet it has a page that says "DirectSound and DirectMusic are separate components of DirectX with some overlapping functionality..." along with a chart comparing the functionality of each. If DS and DM have different functionality then where is the DM documentation so that I can make use of the functionality provided by DM? Or is the documentation out of date and DS and DM have actually been merged therefore removing the need to write code to handle DS and DM separately?

i have the Dec 2005 SDK installed, and the direct music CHM file is there in the DirectX SDK's Documentation\DirectX9 directory - directmusic.chm.
