     Playing multiple sounds simultaneously is not an easy task, especially in VB. Most VB applications (and games!) that use sound use the PlaySound() API function [which only allows one sound at a time]; others resort to DirectX or third-party DLLs such as BASS. This project is a first step to ending all that, presenting an API-only method. _________________________________________________________ I don't know if it's compatible with VB5, any feedback on this would be appreciated. _________________________________________________________ Includes an extensive ReadMe file, full demo and clean, commented code.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Great work! However I have a question: How do I control volume or balance using this engine?
