Looks good... except that there's no documentation whatsoever so I
can't figure out how to use it.  I can load a WAV file as a sample
(which takes forever if it's a complete song), but then pressing
"play" gives me no sound.  Do I have to create a pattern or track
somehow?  I can't figure it out!  Help!

On an unrelated note (and probably more on-topic), someone else
recommended Snd, which also looks good, except that it won't play
anything either.  When I try, I get an error:

can't play 
  (data format 2 (mulaw (8 bits)) not available on /dev/dsp
  [audio.c[2095] oss_mus_audio_open_output])
  [snd-dac.c[1719] start_audio_output_1]

Is there something I can do to fix this?

Thanks for your patience all.
