QB multi-music

I have been writing some music files in basic using the play command, I was wondering, how can you play two or three pecies of music at the same time In qbasic. any help what-so-ever would be greatly apreciated.

    On C64 you could do that easily, simply add a new parameter like this:
    PLAY "CDE","ML CDE","MS CDE"
    And it would play cde in stegato, legato and normal (cant remember the
    nice name for it).

    I don't know how to do it in QBASIC.

    Well thanks but If you do this it plays them one after another and I have to make it all at the same time, (i'm also useing Qbasic) but thanks anyway

    You could make a program that comunicated with your soundcard. Search
    the web for you soundcard and programming and you could find a lot of
    info.

    I think a lot of soundcards is compatible with soundblaster, in all
    old dos games I usually got soundblaster, wich I don't got in reality.

    I've tried some things and it wont work, like sound and play cant play
    at the same time.

    Well, IDK is right, the only way to do this within QBASIC is to communicate with your soundcard. You can use ADLIB as well, as a simple music playing system. I don't know what version of QBASIC do you have(does it support ASM or not), but I would use some assembly - if interested in some code/documentation just let me know(it's too detailed, won't fit here).

    By the way, let me note that the original C64 does not have any PLAY functions. (It uses a SID chip which was one of the 10 most intelligent chips in the '80s) In sound/music systematics C64 BASIC 2.0 and QBASIC has nothing common.

    What is C64? I have searched by Yahoo, and all it comes up with is that Commodore 64 was an old computer, the bestselling of all time apparently. Could someone please clarify this?

    Yes you got it right, it is an old computer that was very popular
    before. It used basic for programming. The whole operating system was a
    texteditor where you edited and ran basic programs.
