Can you suggest an ‘obvious technique’ I don’t describe in my email? Given that none of the techniques there work even remotely directly with samples, but rather with approximate durations, I don’t see how it’s possible to get sample-accurate transitions.

Silvia Pfeiffer suggested using Media Source Extensions, which looks more promising, but I don’t see how they can be used to ‘join’ the samples from two different audio files into the same buffer.
