Use exec or backticks to execute your program that does the conversion
and writes the new file, then send the mp3,wav, etc headers and send the
data from the newly created file. 

Depending on how long the conversion takes, you may want to redirect the
user to the file after a certain amount of time and let the browser
handle it.
