I think that it should be easier to do from C/C++ than from Scheme. 
Maybe using PortAudio or some simple sound playing API (it depends on 
whether you need this cross-platform and such).

PS. libsndfile is wrapped using the FFI (look in the 
collects/ffi/examples dir) but this only allows for reading and writing 
various (uncompressed) audio file formats.
