Is there a way to send commands to a sound card from a console application in c++ or c? Or just manipualate sound period in a console application? Any examples would be great!

I am using Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0

You can use any Windows multimedia API in a console application. You might want to use MessageBeep or PlaySound.
