Hi there !

I have documentation about DMA and DSP - Programming. You need DMA (Direct Memory Access) and DSP (Digital Sound Processor) - Knowledge. Give me your eMail or ICQ - Address and i will send you these stuff. But note, this is HUGE work you would have to do, if you want to write your own sound routines. I would recommend that you use a player what in this case not means an external EXE, it means a collection of units etc. for playing sounds. One of the best i know is the MIDAS Sound System avaiable at http://www.hornet.org, but like i said, feel free to eMail me if you are interessted in the whole information. But its really very much cos i think you will have to use and understand EMS or XMS stuff too.

Greets, Omsec
