    I've been Stokowski'd! (love letter from a new user)

    O... MY... GAWD.

    Apologies for a frivolous posting, but... O... MY... GAWD.

    To try out my New Toy, which I got day before yesterday, but I hadn't had a chance to really fool with 'til just now, I downloaded a public domain MIDI from the Mutopia Project: Arrival of the Queen of Sheba by Handel, one of my favorite baroque pieces. I plugged it into Melody Assistant, started up GPO Studio, and loaded the two solo classical oboes, and the various section strings (long and short bows). Not the proper baroque orchestra, but what the heck. So I pressed play...



    It was like listening to a recording by the Philadelphia Orchestra, man! And that's WITHOUT fooling with the mod wheel, keyswitches, etc., or even creating a proper divisi for the violins. It JUST WORKED.

    I knew it could sound good from listening to the demos and other people's works. But doing it for myself...

    Anyway, after I picked myself up off the floor, I decided I'd write and say "Thanks, Gary!" Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

    Told you that you'd be losing a lot of sleep after you opened the box.

    And so it begins, sleepless nights, no time for family, muttering "maybe KS would work better there" for no reason.

    Welcome and good luck.

    Regards,
