Attached is a new version of the patch. I set the cap at 3% of the
track length. This means at the max step size, you can go through
any track in about 8 seconds (I observe about 0.25s/step on my player).
Of course, it may take much longer than 8 seconds to accelerate up
to the max step size depending on your settings.
