well, we really only know what is happening from what you tell us what
you are observing.
e.g. it is unclear whether the entire audio engine stalls (e.g. other
sounds that are supposed to play back at the same time stutter as well),
or whether the 0.5 seconds are just skipped.

not without also raising the buffer-size for [readsf~].

well, since i have no clue how many audio files you want to play back
(and how large they are), it is hard to suggest anything meaningful.
