Thanks for your bug report and patch. Unfortunately the audio package is largely unmaintained and has not seen a release in almost 5 years.

The good news is Octave will be gaining much improved audio support in a future version without the need of the audio package. Once that happens the audio package will not be needed any longer and will probably be removed from Octave Forge.

All that said, I can't confirm whether your patch works or not, or whether it's specific to Mac OS or not.

sound.m in audio package tries to deduce whether octave is being run locally from the DISPLAY variable. In my system, this is prefixed with a path to a unix domain socket (DISPLAY=/tmp/launch-LwQmV8/org.macosforge.xquartz:0). With the attached patch, sound.m understands absolute file system paths.
