Pauses playback.


void pause()






  This is an example of how to use a FilePlayer UGen to play an audio file. It support all of the same formats that 
  AudioPlayer does, but allows you to insert the audio from the file into a UGen chain. FilePlayer provides all the 
  same methods that AudioPlayer does for controlling the file playback: play(), loop(), cue(int position), etc.
  Press any key to pause and unpause playback!

  // can easily get from Minim using loadFileStream

  // and then we'll tell the file player to loop indefinitely
  // get a line out from Minim. It's important that the file is the same audio format 
  // as our output (i.e. same sample rate, number of channels, etc).

  // patch the file player to the output

// keyPressed is called whenever a key on the keyboard is pressed
void keyPressed()
  // you can query whether the file is playing or not
  // playing simply means that it is generating sound
  // this will be true if you tell it to play() or loop()
