Hi Halle,

Thanks for the reply. Everyone seems to recommend using OpenAL for short sound effects where the starting time latency is important and AVAudioPlayer for background music. I see this recommendation repeated time and time again online. Is it the case that it’s not possible to use OpenAL/Finch with OpenEars or you don’t feel that it is required for my application? If there is variable latency between the user pressing the start recording button and the phone playing the start tone, I’m worried it will create a bad user experience.

Also, if I start using the FliteController will it conflict with AVAudioPlayer?
