BASS has been around quite a while. Started as a mod playing library (the stuff you could hear on your amigas and ataris back in the day). It would be a very good candidate, however, their licensing model might be in the way:
BASS is free for non-commercial use. If you are a non-commercial entity (eg. an individual) and you are not charging for your product, and the product has no other commercial purpose, then you can use BASS in it for free. Otherwise, you will require one of the following licences.
Shareware licence: €100
The "shareware" licence allows the usage of BASS in an unlimited number of your shareware products, which must sell for no more than 40 Euros each. If you're an individual (not a corporation) making and selling your own software (and its price is within the limit), this is the licence for you.
Single Commercial licence: €950
The "single commercial" licence allows the usage of BASS in a single commercial product.
Unlimited Commercial licence: €2750
The "unlimited commercial" licence allows the usage of BASS in an unlimited number of your commercial products. This licence applies to a single site/location. note that all prices are quoted in Euros, but payment can also be made in several other currencies These licences are on a per-platform basis. There is a 40% reduction on each additional platform, eg. Win32 and OSX Shareware licences would cost €160 instead of €200. In all cases there are no royalties to pay and you can use future BASS updates without further cost. Reselling/sublicensing is not permitted. Your products must be end-user products, eg. not components used by other products. Please note that these licences only cover your own software, not the publishing of other's software. If you have got any questions, please get in touch.
All the best,
