At once stage it was time automated and audio on an SD card all run by the microcontroller but had audio buffer issues.

You could try using those small xenon tubes (i have a bag full of these tubes) from disposable cameras, they still look sparkey, less noisy, and only need about 2kv to fire directly without using trigger electrodes, the current draw will limit it down to 2kv anyway. Since the voltage will be much reduced it should be much simpler to manage channel separation.
