So the problem is seek times because the 23 MB/sec of a 96 khz/64 mono track 
session don't live linearly on the disk but rather as a sequence of complete 

I wonder how Sara's (existing) session could be made to work (with other means 
than raid), given that at some point all 64 tracks are supposed to play ok. 
Would it be possible to interleave 64 soundfiles on the disk in order to 
linearize disk access?

SuperSampo, go low-level one more time and save another session!
