there are numerous converters, for mac I use iskysoft:http://www.iskysoft.com/video-converter-mac.html
which you can run in demo mode for free, with a limit of 5 mins, which is more than enough just for chopping out samples
of course you could also route the audio into audacity: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ and record it from there so as to get around the whole conversion business.

Audacity also has an "extract audio from video" function, doesn't it?

For $5 you can get this:

The audio suite extracts audio from movie files.

On Linux, conversion from mp4 to wav is trivial, accurate... and free:

Put your mp4 files in a folder and type:
for name in *; do mplayer -ao pcm $name -ao pcm:file=$name.wav; done

voila. (mplayer comes out of the box.)

There are also (free) utilities that will rip a whole DVD onto a .wav file.
