At least auto-ids. They shouldn't be thrown more away than they are the 
same next time :-)

Sounds just like mine. Except I need the concept of "parts" (like in 
verse, chorus, etc). I've put some basic stuff together that allow me to 
specify 8 parts. Each part have a length, and a "goto"-part so when a 
part is done it goes to the next one. Besides this you can "request" a 
certain part to come up next. This is all reflected and controlled from 
my bcr.

What this means for my "ticker" is that it has on/off switches for each 
part, so a given ticker might only output if we're playing part 0 or 2.

peace, love & harmony
