Can I redirect a file to an alternate folder based on its file extension?

Is it possible to redirect files of a certain type (such as all *.wav files) to a specific location? I am working with an application that saves an avi and wav file to a folder I specify. Both files go to that folder. Can I redirect one file to an alternate folder based on its file extension?
The standard Windows "Save" mechanism that is used by most standard applications will typically allow you to set ONE default save location, and to change that location on-the-fly. The desired behavior you are describing can be accomplished through some sort of Windows Scripting mechanism, either a login script or a stand-alone VB/WSH/command-line script.
