Just in case you don't know, there is a Python wrapper
to my own libsndfile ( http://www.zip.com.au/~erikd/libsndfile )
being developed here:


libsndfile handles a large number of different file types
(AU, AIFF, WAV and many more) as well as many encodings
(8, 16, 24, and 32 bit integer PCM, 23 and 64 bit float 
PCM, A-law, u-law, MS ADPCM, IMA ADPCM, G721, G723 and
so on).
