       WildMidi_Init - Initialize the library




       #include <wildmidi_lib.h>

       WildMidi_Init  (const  char  *config_file,  unsigned  short  int  rate, unsigned short int


       Intializes libWildMidi in preparation for playback. This function only needs to be  called
       once by the program using libWildMidi.

              The file that contans the instrument configuation for the library.

       rate   The sound rate you want the the audio data output at. Rates accepted by libWildMidi
              are 11000 - 65000.

              The initial options to set for the library. see below

                     By default the library uses linear volume levels typically used in  computer
                     MIDI  players. These can differ somewhat to volume levels found on some midi
                     hardware which may use a volume curve based on decibels.  This  option  sets
                     the volume levels to what you'd expect on such devices.

                     By  default  libWildMidi uses linear interpolation for the resampling of the
                     sound samples. Setting this option enables the library to use  a  resampling
                     method that attempts to fill in the gaps giving richer sound.

                     libWildMidi  has an 8 reflection reverb engine. Use this option to give more
                     depth to the output.
