Your manager controls the contained elements. So you can seek, swap inputs
as you wish. So in order to play 5s-45s with 10s silence before, run a
silence element for 5s, then seek in the other src to 5s and play it until
45s and then play a silence for another few s.

There's an element in the cupid source tree called assistent that helps
the manager to do this.
