Both the Macintosh and Windows notebook front ends allow you to save a
Graphics cell with a PostScript depiction of a sound object in native
sound formats -- SND for Macintosh and WAV for Windows.  Look under the
Edit -> Save Selection As menu for the actual command.

There is no function for writing sound files in the Mathematica 3.0
kernel.  The Standard Package Miscellaneous`Audio` only provides 
functions for reading sound files.
