That's right. It turns out to be non-trivial. When I was programming in C I wrote--ahem, I adapted--a cross-platform multi-channel sound library (for Mac OS 9 & Windows 95). It was exacting and confusing because the two platforms had very different approaches to sound production. A couple of years ago, I sat down to write an external for RunRev but ran out of both funds and time. If I had a month of paid vacation--and nothing better to do--I might tackle it again for the challenge, but if I really had a month's paid vacation I'd go to France instead!
