   SDL_mixer is a sample multi-channel audio mixer library.
It supports any number of simultaneously playing channels of 16 bit stereo audio, plus a single channel of music, mixed by the popular MikMod MOD, Timidity MIDI, Ogg Vorbis, and SMPEG MP3 libraries.

As of SDL_mixer 1.2.7, Ogg Vorbis and MP3 loading libraries are dynamically loaded, so if you don't need to load those formats, you don't need to include those shared libraries.

   Mixer supports playing MIDI format files using software wavetable via an old version of timidity. This requires you to have a GUS compatible set of sound patches on your system. By default, the library looks for these patches on Win32 in C:\timidity, and on UNIX in /usr/local/lib/timidity/.
