Here's the relevant bit of code that takes the

Well, why are you allocating a new one at all? It seems to me that you
are now working like a DJ who is ordering in a new turntable every
time he puts on a new record. Why not comment that "new SndBuf...."
line out alltogether and just use the old player with a new file?

I realise every guess at what might be causing this will cost you 30
minutes of testing but I think commenting that line out might be the
fix. Alternately you disconect (unchuck) the old SndBuf from the dac
but I think this is it.
