 I changed it to 44.1 and the brightness in the music came back. Yeah.
Thanks for that one. Does it export the runtime files at this sample
rate or is it just inside DMP?

It is still quieter while using a standard stereo path (no reverb), that
is true. Is it at the same volume when played outside of DMP? When I A\B
it seemed to be a little louder in the game.

        It's more than just that though. The direct music output doesn't
provide the same level of quality that, say, sound forge has; and many
sounds suffer huge decreases in volumes when played through 3d paths
(12db or more).=20

By default, DirectMusic runs at 22kHz.  To increase the fidelity of
DirectMusic in DirectMusic Producer, click on the MIDI/Performance
Options button (looks like a MIDI jack) and change it to a higher
sampling rate.

Subject: [directmusic] Audio quality of .wav files

I just noticed for the first time that when I import a .wav file it
sounds quieter and of lower quality. It doesn't quite sound like
resampling to 22,050 but something close to that. This is without any
compression, just "import .wav file as segment" and play it back and it
sounds worse. I only noticed it because I had a music file that started
with a cymbal crash that when put into DMP it sounded pretty bad. I
mainly use DMP with full .wav files of songs rather than midi and sample
banks. =3D20

Any ideas? Did I just miss the memo on importing .wav files won't sound
as good?
