Was that really the case for 2.4?
I have a vague recollection of a SNDChannel external but don't recall coming
across it in HC 2.4. But I could be wrong.
I wouldn't mind the goofy syntax for the very reasons you indicate below.
(and, is it really substantially goofier than the non-standard syntax for
TTS and unknown vis-a-vis the always needed lock/unlock cursor and screen
Are there any differences in latency between imported and external
referenced sounds? I would think that there should be (and not in favor of
the player object).
