Creative Labs and Loki Entertainment have teamed up to produce OpenAL, it's a new audio library standard that is supposed to do for 3d Sound what OpenGL does for 3d Graphics.

" OpenAL, the Open Audio Library, seeks to become the audio counterpart to OpenGL for audio. With OpenAL it is possible to create three-dimensional sound across many platforms, such as Linux, Apple Macintosh, Windows and more, with quality suitable for professional projects like games and multimedia applications. "

I've had a look over the api details provided on the website and it looks like they are on the right track, we will be watching it's development with interest. The OpenAL library is open source under the LGPL license.
