Hi! I'm a recent convert to Mac. I have a specific audio need that is rather peculiar. I need the ability to open multiple overlapping audio files, mp3's and WAV files, with the ability to control volumes independently. For years, I've handled this task on a PC using "Media Player Classic" which opens each file in a separate instance of the application. I can terminate each file by closing its instance, and can adjust volume between each sound file to taste. It's crude, but it works. (What I'm doing is creating mood music and SFX during elaborate storytelling sessions. Individual "scenes" might incorporate 10-15 separate SFX and score tracks at a time. I need to be able to fade between them, adjust volume on the fly, and launch new tracks at a whim.) Any ideas how I can achieve the same result on a Mac? I'm perfectly open to finding an application that can run multiple sound files simultaneously from the same instance, as long as the output sound can overlap the files and I can control volumes independently from within the program. This is even preferable, if such a program exists, since I could conceivably make "setlists" of SFX and musical compositions for each scene in advance and access the whole array more quickly. With Media Player Classic, I have to load each file separately-- very tedious. Any suggestions are most welcome! Thank you, A very recent Mac convert who left behind 7 dysfunctional PCs in effigy, but could use a little kick-start to get going on Mac.
