Loads a bank synchronously.
The bank name is passed to the Stream Manager. Refer to General Information for a discussion on using strings and IDs. You can specify a custom pool for storage of media, the engine will create a new pool if AK_DEFAULT_POOL_ID is passed. A bank load request will be posted, and consumed by the Bank Manager thread. The function returns when the request has been completely processed.
