Windows Media Player
Macintosh users can skip this section.
If you don’t have Windows Media Player 9 or higher on your computer, click here to download it. Media Player is free. If you are not sure if you have it, click the Start button, then point at Programs, and then click on Windows Media Player. (If you don’t see it there, you probably need to download it.) Once Media Player starts up, go to the Help menu and choose “About Windows Media Player.” On the window that opens up you want to see a version number beginning with a 9 or higher. If you can’t find the Help menu, which Microsoft has so brilliantly deemed to be unnecessary, then you have a newer version which will work OK.
Windows users can also use Apple’s QuickTime instead of Windows Media Player. If you do so, go onto the Salsa Rhythm Machine’s “File” menu, and then to “Settings”, and switch it to QuickTime.
