I found the currentTime property which does the reset. I also got it to repeat as I needed by catching playstopped and re-initializing everything thus faking a loop

Got everything working just in time for a night time test before Halloween. :-) 

Got to admit the simulated lightening is pretty cool when synced with a thunder clap

did you try

'set the filename of player 1 to xx'  for each reset?
or

set the filename player 1 to empty
set the filename player 1 to xx'
