Fred,

As far as 1, 3, and 4 go, You might look at my iTunes Library Suite.  
The suite plays through iTunes and seems to be pretty responsive  
playing sounds with out any latency. The best part of using the  
library in Revolution is that you get to enable and control ever  
aspect of iTunes including but not limited to the Equalizer Bands,  
BPMs, Pitch, Duration, Loudness, etc. etc. In affect controlling these  
from within Revolution...

Just a thought, find the URL below:
