    Have you tried increasing the IntRate variable? If you got a machine
faster than a 286/10, then try to bring it up to about 18,000 or so,
that should get rid of the high pitched noise you hear(since I hook my
PC-Speaker up to a stereo, I can easily eliminate it).

    It could be a problem with QB compatibility: I still don't know if
my program is compatible with it(I've only tested it with PDS).

    I'll be posting the modifications to make it Sound Blaster
compatible soon.
