thanks for your answer
*why don't you compute all possible versions beforehand*
thats exactly what i m doing presently cause i m using a 187 filters
database(azimuth and elevation).I would love to be able to reduce the angle
thread under 5° which triggers around 1000 files to produce.For a 3Mb
original sound file, it becomes huge.
