Over at koblo.com we're working on online music collaboration. Html  
5's ability to handle <audio> will be a great help, freeing us from  
having to rely on Flash.

However, I've been unable to find any information on how to trigger  
several audio files in a synchronized manner.

Any audio editing, mixing or multi-track application will need the  
ability to start several audio tracks (elements) at excatly the same  

As an example, consider a simple music mixing application where the  
user can control the volume of the separate tracks (drums, guitar,  
vocal, etc). Seek and play must done all tracks together in a  
synchronized way.

Does the html 5 specification provide any way to to this?
