Noob: Where to start for simple sound playback?

G'day all, I'm trying to find out what the best/simplest solution is to get some basic controllable sound playback happening (eg 1second 8bit 22kHz loop); any suggestions on where to start looking, or which chip / chips to investigate?  I've tried trawling the net, but have had very little success finding info on sound playback with micros.
Are DSP chips the way to go?  Or a "standard" micro?  I have a few S12's lying around, and just got given some MC56F8014's, but I have no clue where to start.
If anyone knows of example C programs, that would be extremely handy;  If I can find a start somewhere I think I can plod along, but the trouble is finding where to start!

Or just use the micro to control a dedicated playback chip?  But again, can't find info on simple playback chips (need total cost of chip / chips to be under about $10)

Thanks
Lee
