Take note. Does this mean, roughly, that this write only occurs into a different portion of a larger contiguous buffer, so it affects audio processing (e.g. throwing an error) or parsing, but otherwise can't be used to affect other memory locations outside that buffer? Hope that made sense. - Steve
