Wha...?  You should be able to load wavs, I have several gigs of them
in various formats and I've been able to load them without a hitch.
My gui design is probably unintuitive, and it isn't evident that you
must first add a patch (action->add), then the 'Load Sample' button
will become usable.

The main goals are quality, efficiency, and flexiblity.  I want it to
sound good, I want it to be lean and fast, and I want to leave as much
up to the user as possible without being overly overwhelming.  In a
more practical, short term sense, I want to support cuts; sample
looping via several different methods; regular and granular pitch
scaling; several built in filters; envelopes for volume, panning,
filter cutoff, and resonance; a few built in distortions; and effects
via the LADSPA interface.

But first, I need to make sure the users can load wavs...
