Libsndfile is lovely, but I'm not using it.  In particular, libsndfile is designed to read and write a variety of formats. Rather than depend on yet another library, I just wrote my own code to read and write .wav files. The actual playing is handled by portaudio. If I had any ambition to read and write other formats, though, I'd definitely use libsndfile.

Give my regards to Erik de Castro Lopo, though; his library has been well-documented and well-supported for many years now.
