Ahh, I was right.

I just tried this...

You could record a left-balanced and right-balanced version of each 
sound file in a sound program and then save them in a format that 
QuickTime understands (like MP3). You can then preLoad and play them as 
videoClips. I threw in some mp3 tracks and it seemed to work, but I 
didn't test carefully for any lag anything.
