yo.. before you get too frustrated, ask the list first (as you did now).
i'd assume that many people would be appreciative of your frustration
and therefore are willing to help.

yeah, this is a bit inefficient, because it is not really necessary to
go into the audio domain.

definitely it is. some people mentioned [line], which is probably the
most preferrable solution in the most cases. if you _really_ want to
have the behaviour of a [lop~], then have a look at attached patch,
which tries to imitate a [lop~] in the message-domain.
