I was just thinking the other day that this sort of method could be
used to piece together voice response and other audio, put
together in memory, thus allowing rockbox to talk.

So is the issue that we have to frame align any inserted
data, or can the MAS chip be turned off/reset externally
and a new frame started?

I think I need to re-read the MP3 and MAS specs. I'd
like to help.

Regards,

Greg
