thanks. How about SDL_sound?
And what's the time frame for SDL_audio 1.3?

If you need to play a few common audio file formats, and get ahold of
the uncompressed data right before it goes to the hardware (for both
visualization and maybe modifying), SDL_mixer is probably what you'll
want, between those two options.

Depends on the application. It's worth noting that SDL_mixer is built on
top of SDL, though, so it's largely a question of whether SDL_mixer is
more convenient to use.

Between the two? It's a tossup...we consider all bugs when reported for
both libraries, but aren't actively developing either the SDL 1.2 audio
API or SDL_mixer (largely because both work as advertised at the moment,
and new feature development for SDL is going into the 1.3 branch, which
isn't ready for production use yet).
