The media player on the StageScape M20d is relatively instant. It takesa fraction a second to load and begin playing the file. I currently have 30 files added to the media player on a USB thumb drive. I can go from track to track playing each file with a pause of less than a second. Keep in mind, your backing tracks would want to be relatively complete mixes as a mp3 - having to play 2 files from the media player at the same time is not possible. The media player will only play 1 file at a time. But again, the latency is very minimal, much less than 2-3 seconds, I assure you.
You can also assign momentary foot switches (such as from your guitar amp) to play/pause the media player to sync starts and stops with the band.
I hope this is helpful.

It is helpful. Thanks. I was wandering if I could play a ad-lib voice+piano song, and then start the backing tracks mid-song, where it was necesary, by pressing the footswitch, and the backing tracks could start fast enough that it would not cause a delay if I pressed right on time, meaning I synced with my playing. This kind of fast I was thinking.
Kind of how my Roland G6 starts playback of samples instantly when I press one of the 16 pads
