    Multi-channel audio.

    What sort of API is easy to learn and use, that I can play several different audio files at once. Mp3 support would be nuce, but its not a must.

    OpenAL has never been offically released as far as i know, All you can get is CVS snapshots. Im not even sure if its still being worked on.

    Unless it's against your religon you could try DirectSound then. It's not that complicated, just follow the steps in the tutorials from the docs from the sdk. Alternatively you could look at SDL, which wraps DirectSound and is cross platform compatible.
