Hope this will help you..
Under the options tag with MMTTY open the setup tab..
Open the Misc tab and you will see the device ID..
Depending on your computer sound card setup this will determine which
sound card to pick for MMTTY...
My setup has the windows default as Device 0 and my second
sound card as Device 1..
Just setup here with two sound cards and your E mail on the
reflector woke me up to this HI....
Good Luck Mike
