Playing multiple wave files

I have a few indicators that play WAV files ie one that beeps everytime a tick from IB comes in one playing WAV for news alerts, playing wav files when a 5min bar has finished etc.
The problem is that only one wav file can be played at a time, all others are ignored. So say that right now a beep was being played to signify a new tick had come in and at exactly the same time a news alert and a 5min bar time were triggered, only the beep would be heard. The other wave files are ignored.
Perhaps some method of either cuing the wav files to be played or perhaps audio mixing.
One user said he has multiple copies of MC running on his PC with a seperate indicator with it's sound file on each instance.  Not desirable.



Steps to reproduce this issue

Try playing multiple wav files at once. Only one will get through.
