The driver column holds the file name of each driver without the <tt>.drv</tt> extension. The patch column specifies which patch resource each driver requests. The poly column is the maximum number of voices which can be played at once according to the driver. The flag column gives each device’s play flag. Play flags, explained in the header section, determine which channels a device will play.
