I'm somewhat happy to announce the first release of SoLoud audio engine.
SoLoud is a simple, easy and free c/c++ audio engine for games. The source code should be portable, and has no external dependencies.
Currently it depends on SDL for audio stream output, but implementing other back-ends should be relatively simple.
Documentation and downloads can be found at: http://soloud-audio.com
A youtube clip of the demos included:
- Simplest: plays a short speech through the speech synth, then quits
- Piano: using a simple sine wave sound source and built-in faders, a simple piano application
- Multimusic: plays two streamed ogg soundtracks and a sound effect.

New release, with lots and lots of changes, including..
- PortAudio, winmm, oss, wasapi, xaudio2 and openal back-ends
- Simplified cleanup - no separate cleanup functions per back-end
- Simple cross-platform thread support for back-ends that require it
- Filter interface revamped
- Echo, fft and biquad resonant (low/high/bandpass) filters
- Switched from ffft to a simpler (and slower) fft implementation
- Faders can now oscillate
- wav/ogg files can be loaded from memory
- AudioInstance -> AudioSourceInstance rename
- SoLoud core split into a bunch of source files to keep things manageable
- Various changes aiming at multi-channel support; hardcoded stereo support removed
- Audio samples no longer interlaced to simplify filter processing
- Simplified init and wave loading by removing useless options or moving them to constants in soloud.h
- Mixing busses implemented
- Visualization via FFT or waveform supported, requires init flag to work
- Resampler interface and linear resampler
- Granularity of audio buffers fixed to a small value, configurable via soloud.h
- Per-sample volume faders
- Reworked old and added more example applications
- Premake4 script for project files to generate static libraries
- Reorganized files for easier handling (single include directory, etc)
- Lots and lots and lots of bug fixes and mixer rewrites
