Hi Be-Two,
I have to create a float value list from a stereo wav file.

I would start here:


From this page, you can download the .WAV file format specications, and
armed with the knowledge, you could write an application to parse the .WAV

I haven't done this myself, but in the simplest case when the file is not
compressed (PCM mode), you should be able to read the integer channel values
almost directly once you skip the file header.

Hope this helps!
