    No. That's not how it works at all. There really isn't anything real-time about LB. It just reads and writes files. No live streams in or out. But it can do all kinds of things with files. It can show vector art files as timed animation on the screen. It bridges the gaps between ild, dxf, txt, wav such that they can almost be thought of as just different forms of the same thing; vector data. Bitmap files are the translation to raster.

    And wav files are multichannel, so a single wav file has all the control signals together as x, y, r, g, b, i, and possibly L & R audio. The 6th channel (i) can be a monochrome color mod signal or z or time code.

    What goes around, comes around. Most folks reflect one's light, yet silently absorb darkness, the invisible harm we inflict upon ourselves.

    Not all wav players can play more than stereo, but some can into multitrack studio sound devices and surround sound devices.

    The success of my app used to make wav files for direct display depends on that entirely!
