With XAP I suggested a per-voice SEEK control.  If a Plugin implements the
SEEK control (totally optional) the host can jump into the middle of your
sustained pads by issuing a seek on the voice.  This doesn't work so well
for reverbs and stuff.

I don't get what you're suggesting - you want to be able to jump to any
point in time and have the buffers still be there?
