DIRECTX 8: DirectXAudio

Welcome to the DirectXAudio section, in this section you will learn the required tricks and techniques to add crisp, dynamic and high speed sound effects and music to your games and multimedia applications. DirectXAudio is now a generic wrapper for the old DirectX 7 interfaces DirectSound, DirectSound3D and DirectMusic - added integration makes them smoother, faster and much easier to program. The tutorials are set up in a specific order (lessons) so that the learning curve is easier, and so that you cover all the basics before moving onto the more complex features.

The following list contain the available tutorials, a brief description and a rating - pay particular attention to the rating, trying things beyond your capability may prove foolish.. but then again, you do need to push yourself if you want to succeed.
