DECwindows: Sound on AlphaStation

The Question is:

How can I use the Soundcard in my AlphaStaion 200/166
with OpenVms ??


The Answer is:

    Multimedia Services for OpenVMS V1.4 supports the sound card
    on Alphastation workstations.  This product provides a new
    version of DECsound, some other audio sample applications, and
    a programming interface using the WAVE API that Microsoft

    V1.4 runs under OpenVMS Alpha V6.1-1H2 and V6.2.  I'm told that
    a version that supports OpenVMS Alpha V7.0 is in the works.

    The V1.4 kit is a port of the Multimedia Services for Digital Unix
    V1.4.  Later versions of the Unix code base are being ported to
    VMS, as well.
