This message is used in an MMDRV_MESSAGE_PARAMSstructure passed to the WAV_IOControlfunction to request a waveform output driver to set the specified device's pitch multiplier value.


Device identifier — 0, 1, 2, and so on — for the target device.
Specifies this message.
Specifies a device instance identifier.
A DWORDcontaining the pitch multiplier value. This is specified as a fixed-point value, where the high-order WORDof the DWORDcontains the signed integer part of the number and the low-order WORDcontains the fractional part. The fraction consists of a WORDvalue, for which 0x8000 represents one-half and 0x4000 represents one-fourth. For example, the value 0x00010000 specifies a multiplier of 1.0, with no pitch change, and a value of 0x000F8000 specifies a multiplier of 15.5.
Not used.

Return Values

MMSYSERR_NOERROR indicates success. Otherwise, the driver returns one of the MMSYSERR or WAVEERR error values declared in the Mmsystem.h header file.


The ACM sends this message by calling the audio driver's WAV_IOControlentry point through the DeviceIoControlfunction.

Support for this message by drivers is optional. However, if a driver supports this message, it must support WODM_GETPITCH. Additionally, in response to a WODM_GETDEVCAPS message, it must set WAVECAPS_PITCH in the dwSupportmember of the WAVEOUTCAPSstructure.
