They don't get mangled, don't worry :)

They just take forever to load, because Sweep loads the entire file in RAM, and, 
as you can imagine, the party's over as soon as you run out of RAM.

So it depends how much RAM you have and how big your files are ( +/- 10 MB per
minute at 44.1 kHz stereo, 16 bit)
