Why did you dismiss Blackfin? There are quite a few audio tools for
it. At the last AES in SF, Digital Concepts demo'd Audio Weaver a
Matlab-based tool that comes with loads of modules. Seemed easy to
construct software and had about every module you might need. I think
it's free to download and use and then you pay when you release the
product to the market. More: http://dspconcepts.com/audio-weaver. Of
course, you'll need Matlab.

There's also VisualAudio from Analog Devices.
(which I think is free)

Besides the proto boards from Analog, Danville Signal has some
interesting prototyping boards as well:
