Direct Sound has not change much since 2004, with a minor update for Vista.

WASAPI is the new windows sound API built on top of Direct Audio like Direct Sound was. I want to explore the pros and cons of other newer Audio APIs before I start writing code again. Thank you, I will take a look at both of these.
