I don't think there will be a issue with that. Your program would have its
data and its structure for playing sounds and both would be affected by a
single shred that would parse the keyboard. That sort of thing is quite
possible and a fairly normal type of structure for a ChucK program.

I'm certain you can do way better than hope. You'll need to define for
yourself what voice assignment means to you here. From there on it's a
matter of translating that definition to formal code. Personally I think
it's a good thing that ChucK has no inherent idea of what voice assignment
and cycling mean as that means we get to figure out what we need in our
specific situation. The developers can't foresee what any individual
programmer might want or need (I'm quite certain they are already very aware
of that...)

Sorry :¬).

I fear you're going to have to program a bit. It's not all *that* much and
90% is coming up with a good plan.
