Increase your server bandwidth :) If it's in the music folder, it should be streamed so it ought to play as soon as it's got enough data to start playing - it won't need to download the entire track. So it must be a pretty slow server that it takes 5-10 sec to do that.Ashley2013-02-14 14:25:50

while we are on the topic...
@Ashley i probably asked for this before but can you add a "preload everything!!!" event for the audio object?

i prefer to have everything cached instead of the download on first use stuff...

I second that, preload everything would be really useful in some cases where the gameplay depends on the sounds playing.
