i have lurked on this. My focus was lying on platform independendness. 
i think, before you start borrowing some code and integrate that into your tX, 
think about using an existing lib. 
I haven't looked into every lib in detail, so i don't know if all your 
requirements are integrated, but here is my list. 

- libremix
- audiere 
- audiality
- irrklang
- caudio
- openAL
- tritium
- allegro
- clam
- cmt
- rtaudio
- portaudio /portmixer 
- stk

i think, audiere was the best one for my requirements. Let me know, what you 
are missing in detail . Maybe i can help with some code. 

bye c~
