I can't tell much from this, so my suggestion may be off course, but
the progress should be set using SET-FACE to a decimal value between 0
and 1. It's better to calculate the absolute value, rather than using
a step value. To calculate the value, you should not refer to the
progress bar size itself, but the size of the wave file (as you are
doing correctly) and the point at which you are reading the wave file.
I assume you know how much of the wave file you are reading at a time
and how you play it.
set-face prog wave-size / point-in-wave-file
And that's it. Again, sorry, if I'm way off course.
