I am learning VB5 and am trying to create a "Simon" like game, for practice.  Can anyone help me with a routine that can produce immediate sound from a click ?  I would need to control pitch and duration. I am, unfortunately, working w/ a 486/66.  Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to find a routine that doesn't use the internal speaker.
How about PlaySound() ???

Hi,
Here is one more way to havre sound.
use wav files with voices clicks squicks and so.

and here is a very simple code to run it.

'=========== start ========

Option Explicit
Private Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim SndPlay
SndPlay = sndPlaySound("c:\hello.wav", 1)
End Sub

'======== end =========
