I've had a brief look at this and there isn't a sound orientated
library as such.  You can however use numpy to do stuff like FFTs and
there are there is a wave module in python that will allow you to
create wavs, you can google for importing wav's into numpy arrays.
This seemed like a good idea to me as I think Numpy is written in C or
C++ (or maybe it was fortran).  There seem to be a lot of people using
numpy in a similar way to matlab so there is a fair ammount of the
standard DSP routines have already been written.
