it would be useful to have this as an audio unit virtual instrument to use in your favorite daw, for quick text changes without having to export/import the .aiff everytime a change is made.
i guess you could also workaround this by using soundflower/jack to input it directly to the daw but an audio unit would be one of a kind (haven't found any that converts text to speech).

great app.
