Yeah I guess you could do something like that, but wouldn't copying RAM from one to the other be a bit of a toll on the processor? This game runs even on 68k machines and it's doing more things at the time than just playing music.

I think Eagleplayer does this too, by the way. But both are system-friendly apps that only play music and not much else.
