I just received email that the new Windows 7 SDK is now live! Apparently it’s not on the Windows SDK download site yet, but if you click on the first link, you can download an ISO which contains the SDK.
For the Win7 SDK, I wrote about 8 new samples in the Multimedia\Audio category, they’re described here (check the Multimedia\Audio samples. These samples replace the old WinAudio SDK sample – basically I took the old WinAudio sample and blew it up into 8 different samples which demonstrate different aspects of rendering audio using WASAPI.
I’ll write some more about the samples tomorrow – there are some cool things in the way the samples are structured that I hope will help developers who want to understand the difference between the various WASAPI render and capture modes.
