This is where we keep those versions of our files necessary to directly use the audio mixing services of DirectX. Also under the WIN9X folder is the WIN9XMIX folder. This folder contains those versions of our files necessary to do the audio mixing on our own outside of DirectX. There are two versions of the non-DirectX Soundtrack Manager provided on the CD, reflected in the subfolders of FP and MMX. These folders contain those versions of our files for doing the mixing using either floating-point assembly instructions, or the MMX instruction set.

First, we increment the SMSTATUS frame counter. This is simply a count of how many times our interrupt has fired since the library was initialized. We next update all of our defined devices, update the volumes for all playing resources, and call each of our update routines through the procedure list we set up during initialization. Finally, we perform any platform-specific operations that may be necessary, and exit: do { //Continue updating based on mixer progress ok = UpdateDevices(); //Update all modules UpdateVolumes(); ProcListExecute(UpdateProcList); UpdatePlatform(); } while (ok); The amount of work to do in each of these procedure lists or update routines depends entirely on what audio is playing at any given time.

A three-bit word has eight unique combinations of 1s and 0s. 25 V. 2 shows an input analog signal and it’s 3-bit digital representation. As you can see, there is some error introduced into the resulting digital signal from trying to represent a continuous analog signal with discrete, stepped digital data. The problem arises when the analog value being sampled falls between two digital values. When this happens, the analog value must be represented by the nearest digital value, resulting in a very slight error.
