Excuse my ignorance, but isn't that why we have a library that will deal
with writing out soundfiles for us? If it weren't for this
http://www.mega-nerd.com/libsndfile/ I might have risen to the challenge of
doing it in ChucK. I think that's possible, but I'm also in the process of
learning Scheme and on a deadline. Doing it "manually" in ChucK seems
possible but not that efficient in either terms of CPU or used hours.

I can completely understand this.

Maybe? I'm only semi-formally in charge of navigating The Mess, not of The
Mess itself. I propose we move on to stage 2 of any ChucKist issue which -as
I remember it- is "blaming Ge" ;¬).

Clearly a feature is missing.

That said; I could see advantages to building this into LiSa in the long
term. Some audio file formats consist of both wave data and loop points,
much like LiSa. That could mean advantages to exporting straight from LiSa,
even though I feel that our cutest UGen is far more interesting with regard
to looping than traditional formats and samplers are.
