Awesome! Thanks Collin! I'll give it a try in a short while.

> Worker, which frees up the main thread to continue being responsive to the
> user.

>  * Triggering a reset of the current play position, moving back to the
> start of the sound file
>
> I also created a new unit generator called flock.ugen.readBuffer, which is
> comparable to SuperCollider’s BufRd unit generator. It allows you to
> modulate the playback rate and position in a very fine-grained way using a
> phase input. readBuffer only moves its read point based on the value of its
> phase input, so it is typically used with other unit generators such as
> flock.ugen.line or flock.ugen.phasor.

> There are several new unit generators that I will also release soon,
> including lag, quantize, indexArray, and pulseToFreq. Stay tuned.
