I don't think any PCs running XP will have a problem using DirectSound.
I thought that was the default.
To write a conditional statement that does something different on
different OSes, do this:
if the platform contains "win" then
--do something for Windows
--do something for Mac
I believe that Macs only have one option of soundDevice, that being
MacSoundManager. It is the default and probably can't be changed.
If it's the default, it sure makes a difference (the music is louder and cleaner with the code). BUT if I use the line of code then my volume slider becomes a problem it seems to turn the sound back to that of without the SoundDevice being set. The volume suddenly jumps down when I use the slider.

XP, yes. NT, no (but you didn't ask that :)
You can also check out 'the soundDeviceList' and set it to your favorite from
the list of soundDevices available on a machine.
