I do not have code right now to do this, but it seems pretty easy in Lua.
WAV files consist of a 44-bytes header [1], followed by RAW PCM data.
Provided that the WAV files use the same mode (i.e. stereo, 44.1kHz, 16 bits),
what you have to do is:
- Open first file, read 44 bytes from it
- Open second file, read 44 bytes from it
- Verify that the headers are identical, except the Subchunk2Size field
- Compose the resulting header, by summing the Subchunk2Size fields
- Open destination file, write the result header
- Read remaining of file1, write it to file3
- Read remaining of file2, write it to file3
