that's a cool idea. I never thought that. Although I've actually done
basically that many times in a non-musical way, for stress testing
concurrency situations  on media processors for pc's....

I guess I don't know what a mac would do, but I'm sort of curious. Have you
tried yet? I would expect Quicktime to act like a single sound module, with
pitch bend affecting everything on a given channel. So I would expect the
two movies to interfere with each other. Maybe not though, I'm not really
sure.  let me know if you find out....
