  Yes, I know about that one - no "speed" control, though.
But a moment ago it striked me, that using variable speed mp3
playing external will propably cause me a bigger problem.
  I was planning to use that kind of object to play various
sound loops - my patch works more less like ableton Live,
where I trigger those sounds by midi events. The patch has
bpm control which controls the speed at which all the files
are being played (that is why I asked about mp3 playing
external). But now I remembered that mp3 encoders do
some zero stuffing (silence) at the end of files, so I
would get clicks when "looping" sounds.
Dunno how it looks with ogg files.

If I may ask: what do you mean "not close enough"?
What you don't like about readanysf~?


Doesn't matter if I'm paranoid - they're still after me.
