Multi-channel (i.e. 4+) buffer~, play~, and groove~???

    Has anybody come across (or made) a [buffer~]-like object which accommodates more than four channels? And/or playback objects to match? I need it to work with eight for my current project (though more would be useful for future reference).
    Of course, if I could choose which of the source channels to load into a normal [buffer~] (e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4 into one and 5, 6, 7, 8 into another), that would work fine -- I can sync the output using [play~], for example. But I'm pretty sure (from my explorations at least) that that's not possible. Can anyone suggest a workaround?
    I'd be very grateful for thoughts. Many thanks.

      You can't tell play~ to use two buffers at the same time, but can't you simply use parallel play~ and buffer~ objects ? Both play~ objects are then controlled by the same phasor~ or whatever.
