Unhappy Running multiple instances of Audacious (slightly urgent)

I need to run two instances (i.e run the program twice, with two separate windows) of Audacious. This is for a play where I need to have music and sound effects going at the same time. I could do this while running Fedora 13, but after upgrading to 14 the audacious package was updated and now can't do this. My attempts at downgrading have been unsuccessful, and I need the audio done by tonight (the last rehearsal). So... am I up the river without a boat, or is there a fast solution? I'm open to anything, as long as the music player has advanced controls (play, pause, stop, fast forward, rewind, forwards track, backwards track) and can have two instances running at the same time.

Figured out a quick fix! I'm just running Audacious once as my user, then again as root via sudo. Not the best or safest method, but it works.
