so i think i figured something out. i'm going to use this thread as a brainstorming thread so please, any constructive input will be appreciated.
so to do this i'm going to need a few things:
infrared remote relay board
or build it myself:
simerec's sis-7c ic
less expensive sony chip with 14 latching outputs
transmitter to be hooked up to the ipod touch:
reciever to be hooked up to your computer in order to record the ir signal:
38kHz Infrared (IR) Receiver Module
receiver schematics 1
receiver schematics 2
use the following documentation to convert wav files into ir 'commands':
use ipod as a remote
now onto the software side of things and seeing how hard it would be to make an application that can play the sounds based on button presses on the ipod touch. again, any help would be greatly appreciated.
the one issue i see here is how to hook up the ipod to the stereo as well as the ir transmitter. I could hook them both up with a toggle switch but there has to be a cleaner way.
more research that is way over my head:

this looks promising but i think you need web access
i'm going to keep updating this post for future developers... most of what i add here is way out of my scope of hacking, so enjoy:
