I don't. )
* If you make the buffer large, it will be late to start ringing and it will be difficult to interrupt.

4. problem
 Since I made it properly in a short period of time, I am pulling out hands here and there. Laugh and forgive
Please give me. Also, since I used the multimedia API of Windows for the first time,
 It's a rather amusing program. Especially for the reason of reproduction
It is fatal that the sound is interrupted at the timing. In media player properly
I think that there is some way because it sounds without interruption, but if there is a good way for someone
please tell me. By the way, I used an API called waveOutWrite().
This discontinuity is hardly noticeable on FM-Towns IIMX.
Also, for some reason, "Noro Vision" (IBM's first PS/V Vision),
There is a phenomenon of falling, and we are rushing to pursue the cause. Someone worked on Vision
Please report if there are people.

5. Saturn miscellaneous feelings
Aster is not a CD playing BGM that is often done with a PC engine, but a PCM
-While reading the file, and playing it in 44.1 KHz, 16 Bit, stereo
is. I think this is astounding, to be clear. Play on Windows
Despite the fact that the processing is quite heavy, Saturn does it with the action game BGM.
It's great because it's ringing. Recommended because the game itself can be played moderately
is. Saturn is still a small number of software, but the quality is good, so do not lose to PS
I want you to do your best. For the time being, I want you to make a "toki memo" quickly.
