Sounds like this (and aero 'glass' in general) is difficult to do with just winAPI (and not atl/mfc etc stuff) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7357349/winapi-aero-glass-without-atl-wtl-mfc-sdk-etc http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5978086/windows-aero-glass-form-text-problem I am also thinking, ...

The GUS were not clones afaik. They were internally different, and the first cards that focussed really on wavetable sound, while older SBs focussed on their OPL(3) syntheziser chips. lol - I am dating myself.... when the GUS first came out was called a 'SB clone' in that it did 'audio' like SB's d...

Classically, afaik the Gravis Ultrasound cards were demomaker's favorites? OMG... 'GUS' I forgot about them 'clones'...lol This is my take; demos mostly used mod trackers that needed only 8 bit (eventually 16 bit?) audio playback. I want to say it was like the awe32 in that you could load banks af ...

DOS is extremely simple, fast, and gives you total control over your hardware. Well, something I don't miss is the memory managers. But still, I miss DOS much more than I miss Windows (using Linux). Oh sure.... Id endure linux before dos tho for MIDI stuff ;) I do try to offer info and not just sna...

DOS will be kept alive by old guys like us and by DOSBOX. Perhaps... but I bet my dollars to your doughnuts that; it wont be solely for doing MIDI. My keyboard became liberated when I got a windows compatable pcm based synth built into my sound card... I DO NOT miss those DOS days... you can keep y...

@maddog6: Sorry, I should have clarified that this was back in the mainframe days when IBM dominated the mainframe market and supplied the software. Yes, back when they actually manufactured those things here (in NY/US IIRC), the 'software' end was so not what IBM wanted to do - but was an 'evil ne...

There was a story (urban myth?) of a young programmer working for IBM who figured out an optimisation for a compiler. He was then told how much he had lost the company in upgrade sales. I say the myth is that its simply 'a story' - as in - it happened *just* once. :) No need to upgrade hardware if ...

Yeah, it's loop. Very long, but still loop. Because all loops are looping and this one is looping. Doesn't contain fadeout/in and it loops. So yes, I call it loop. ;) I just thought of this... Break up your BG music in to 3rd's or 8 bar phrases or 32 bar phrases - or what ever - the critical part w...

Just out of curiosity... I just learned about serialization (I think I learned correctly) and was thinking (say in case of sending a huge text file, uncompressed) if serializing would help ensure messages get reconstructed correctly? if so, is it used here?, and if not, why? Would building in serial...

E0xactly. .....How can I get samples? AFAIK fbsound cannot save files so you have to code this yourself (you can learn from fbsound by reversing the load algorithm). So, what he is saying is; you can learn how fbsound LOADS wavs into memory - and then use that information to reverse engineer saving...

I want to make a midi synthesizer. it can change wave pitch and save sound in wave file.or play to speaker. oh.my english is very poor..... For a synthesiser you just need to generate the sound itself. Create an empty sound object and fill it with data (ie a sinus wave: frequency = tone height, amp...

Thanks. But I don't know who function can split wave and how to create WAVE file. For example: I have two WAVE file for piano. C1 and C2 I will use fbs_Set_SoundSpeed() to change the pitch to play "An die Freude" . For example. I get C#1 will use fbs_Set_SoundSpeed(hSnd,1/12 *2) I get D1 will use f...

I will only get 32 max.polyphone.So my program is not too fit into memory and cpu. For looping samples like that - IFAIK you have to load them into memory - or re-invent the wheel somehow. Like writing to disk and playback - perhaps like a looped tape recorder - or TRAM (circular memory in SBLive D...
