|After working and working at getting a better SoundManager class I finally made one that works with the JLayer library. It has some better functionality such as playing at a given spot within a song, changing volume, and even crossfade between two sound clips.|
There is still a minor issue with buffering the files before playing. Currently you do a SoundManager.play("somemusic.ogg",0,null) to play some music, but it takes some time to load the file from disk.
The asnwer is to make a SoundCache object which would take input like SoundCache.load("SomeMusic.ogg"); and then SoundManager.play(SoundCache.load("SomeMusic"),0,null); All I have to do now is implement it :)
