IMHO libsndfile is quite nice for accessing many (almost all) 
uncompressed audio formats and reimplementing mp3 would not be easier 
than reimplementing jpeg.

That said, a nice FFI binding for libsndfile [1] and PortAudio [2] would 
be a good thing for PLT Scheme to have. And also good matrix/vector 
library, something like numpy for Python with vector&matrix operations 
(+ FFT) based on BLAS, LAPACK, netlib and fftw (the difficult numeric 
part is already done; what remains is some FFI magic and a nice API)
