    BASS, look for it on altavista probably find it fast, it is very good sound lib, and if u want something that ppl claim is easy and free as well (but i thought bass was faster to use)then use fmod.sorry no urls

    OpenAL has been talked about recently in quite a few different quarters. Its supposed to be a free-cross platform 3d sound library. I so clever I couldn't get it to work though

    FMOD is nice too. I can't really say which one is better, BASS or FMOD. BASS sounds
    often a bit better, but FMOD provides
    better functions to synchronize graphics
    with the sound (especially if you use MOD/XM/S3M whatever kind of module)

    Personally I prefer FMOD.
    This is only my opinion, of yourse.

    Since Tom decided to put an openion here, i decided to put one in to Although fmod is quite nice and provides alot of documentation and info, Bass does sound very well and is easier to start with in my op, look upwards for BASS url
    I am sorry i had to say this

    Id be interested to know how people think bass is easier to use than fmod?

    FSOUND_Init(44100, 32, 0);
    mod = FMUSIC_LoadSong("song.xm");
    FMUSIC_PlaySong(mod);

    is hard?

    or

    samp = FMUSIC_LoadWav(FSOUND_FREE, "samp.wav");
    FSOUND_PlaySound(FSOUND_FREE, samp);

    FMOD is twice as fast and has many more features for game and demo development.

    Minifmod is not for newbies

    minifmod also only supports 16bit sound cards who's complaining about that besides people with **** 8 bit cards?

    (8 bit cards went out about 10 years ago? )

    I read all these opinions. Downloaded FMOD.
    Got it up and running in one of my GLUT samples. Thanks, guys!
