Hi Jared! It's not PD, but there's a tool being worked on by some of
the computer music and electrical engineering folks at Columbia
University that you might want to check out. It's called MEAPsoft
(http://labrosa.ee.columbia.edu/meapsoft/). It takes an input wave
file and slices it up into events, then gives you lots of options for
extracting info about them and re-arranging them. It also stores all
it's data in text files, so you can process them in whatever language
you want (PD, perl, whatever).

enjoy your PD-ing!
