This isn't a question about loading a .wav, or the header information. Instead, once I've loaded the raw data I wondered how it's actually organised. I'm keen to play with a little waveform synthesis you see. The simplest is an 8/16bit mono format - is it just a long sequence of BYTEs/WORDs? And is a stereo sound two interleaved mono sounds - left+right, left+right...? Thanks.

Uncompressed mono formats are indeed only a series of (unsigned) char or (signed) short values. Stereo formats are the same in an interleaved manner as you already suspected.
