Did you update your Windows 98 operating system with all the pertinent fixes delivered by WindowsUpdate?  There were many things improved and updates delivered that may help, such as DirectX, the new MEDIA PLAYER, among many others.

Also, have you updated your video and sound drivers to Windows-98 compliant drivers?  

What are the sound files you are trying to play? are they .mid, .mp3, .wav or ??? what types, since I'm not familiar with that program.  Have you checked the web for the program to see if they've updated it with patches for Windows 98?

Perhaps some of these links will help you:

Utilities for Voyetra Sequencer Plus Gold


has many sequencers, etc. listed.

the programme i'm running is about 9 years old and its run in dos.
its brilliant for composing- my mate uses it all the time but he's running win 95.

I enjoy creating music as well, and thanks to Experts-Exchange input found a product I thought quite nice which was a free download for test purposes.  I'm awaiting the next update to order; it allowed me to modify wav sounds at the level I like.

It was called Goldwave (on another system I don't have access to today).  works within Windows 98, and quite smooth, although there are many other trial programs to check out.

Thank you for the b grade and was happy I could help (a little).  

I thought this was such a COOOOOOL thing, and thanks to Dennis (Dew_Associates), who helped me find the link to chase this one down for MIDi music types.  Perhaps you'll also find beneficial (I'll just include the note, in a hurry; sorry - dealdines):

Hello, Asta.

intelliScore converts wavs of music to midi files containing the notes played.  It will figure out the pitches of people singing but not the words themselves.

If you want the notes recognized and not the words, you can get info on downloading a free trial version by visiting our download page at:

Thank you for your interest.
