I’m looking to connect with other users of FMODex from a VBA perspective.
Some facts about me:
I know almost nothing about object oriented programming. I’ve just completed a 1 week course in Excel/VBA which was the first programming course I’ve had since 1985, when I had taken a college level Fortran 77 course. My how the world has changed! Since that time, I’ve used MATLAB almost exclusively, which has spoiled me in some ways (saving memory to .mat files – brilliant), but I’ve not delved into the object side of MATLAB whatsoever. So I am trying to pull my head out of the ground and into the object oriented atmosphere and FMOD will likely be my first foray into something that isn’t directly Excel/MSOffice object stuff.
I’m interested in making some VBA applets which primarily give access to playback of various sounds and ask the listener to make some evaluations on the sounds. I’m using VBA because I’ve just got my feet wet with it and I don’t know any other object oriented language. I don’t really know VBA, but at least I’m somewhat familiar with it and since I have Excel, I have the editor. I’m hoping I can use FMOD, but I’ll probably need a little hand-holding.
I tried searching this forum for any threads that had v* to find others using VB or VBA with FMOD, and I got zero hits.
So, if there are any others reading this thread that use FMOD from within the VBA environment, I’d love to learn about your experiences.

Trying to get hold of Visual Basic 6 is probably an easier way to start.
The language is basically the same as VBA, and examples on using fmod in VB6 are included with the fmod download.
It is probably possible to add the fmod .bas files to a VBA project and then use fmod from VBA.
You can still look at the VB6 examples to learn how to use it, since they will be similar to what you need in VBA.
