this is a repost, though answers seem to be far and few between on the XACT forums, so I'm trying my luck here:

You should only have a single AudioEngine, but you can load as many projects as you like into that. There is no limit on how many soundbanks and wavebanks you can load into the same engine. The only restriction is they all have to share the same global settings data: I think there are some functions in the XACT tool for merging this if you want to coordinate it across multiple separate projects.

ahh, good to know ... since the XACT docs seem to be MIA on the MSDN site, can you point me in the direction of where I can get more information about this

Thanks :-)

XACT docs Heh :-) It seems to be too new a technology to have much written about it, particualarly around how the editing UI works.

I figured out you can merge global settings just from noticing there are Import and Export options in the File menu!
