Sound delay

Hi William,

I haven’t messed with this for quite a while, but the sound delay isn’t new. On iOS I found that the second sound played without delay… even when it was not a repeat of the first sound. Is that what you’ve seen?

My workaround was to record a few seconds of silence and play that sound on openStack.
play specialFolderPath("engine") &"/"& "Silence.wav"

I’ve not used mp3 files in LiveCode, so don’t really if you’re seeing the same thing I did with .wav files.

be well,

Randy Hengst
