I do not think this is true.  The built-in python library supports
wave, aif and raw audio formats, among others.  Other audio formats
such as mp3 are available via extension modules.  So you'll have no
problem here, I suspect.

Guido van Rossum, the inventor of python, worked in the multimedia biz
in his life prior to python and I think worked with audio codecs, so
it is not surprising that python has multimedia serves built in.
