This all makes perfect sense.  I'll have a look at the FFT help files for info on the block~.  Isn't there just a bit of documentation somewhere that has all the different commands/arguments you can send the block~ object or is it just the one blocksize argument?  As someone fairly new to the program, I think it would be helpful to have a list of all objects and all the different arguments or commands.  Is there already something like this out there?
