I haven't looked at synching multiple sounds (isn't that was this
started out as ;-) that much as I haven't needed it for projects I have
worked on. Really this should be addressed outside of QuickTime in the
future by the RunRev folks.
Depending on your needs I think you could create a handler in the EQT
(as Scott Rossi affectionately refers to it) external that took a
couple of different audio filenames as parameters and created a
temporary movie that contained all of them. Then all of the audio
files would share the same timeline and starting and stopping the movie
would start everything in synch. I don't remember exactly what the
original poster needed but this might be a solution.
