Beep Question

I'm using VC++6 on NT4.  I'm aware of the Beep(freq,dur), but I want to extend the usage of this feature.  I would like to create a chord (possibly 3 notes at once) out of it, but am unable to do so.  Any suggestions?

Sorry, also...  another thing I want to ask is: How do I put a "rest" in the middle of a song?

Not with beep(), you could try PlaySound() or the various waveXXXX functions to try to do this.

What are the variables that I need to put in for PlaySound()?

Its all documented in the VC help.   You need a pointer to a string that specifes the sound (iether a resource ID or a sound file name), the module handle for the module with the sound resource, and soem flags that indicate if the name provided is a resource ID or a file name, plus other options.)

#include <mmsystem.h>

::PlaySound(_T("c:\\windows\\media\\chord.wav"), NULL, SND_ASYNC | SND_FILENAME);

Make sure the c:\windows\media\chord.wav file exists. And you need to link with winmm.lib (Menu Project/Settings..., Link tab, Objects/library modules).
