how long are the files? if they're not so long, and you've got a computer 
with a lot of memory, you might be able to load them all to RAM. if 
they're, say, 10 minutes each, and you have 8, then thats 10*60*44100*8 
channels * 4 bytes (32 bit sample data) = 810MB of data. hrm. perhaps not..

(you can use [soundfiler]'s -maxsize argument to allow it to load enormous 
files without any problems - just say -maxsize <some enormous number>)
