    We're finishing it up now. As you had requested, the polka library will default to a volume of 100% with no volume control .

    Also, add in a feature to it that will allow it to directly play MIDIs. Then claim it as "broken" as it will repeat indefinately...

    Hehe ... but actually Polka can be very delicate. I should render one sometimes.

    Re: Hey Mr. G!

    Are you guys going to attend the annual Polkalooza?

    edit: I thought i was making a funny but it appears they really have one. http://www.jimmysturr.com/polkapalooza/


    I have always hated rap music, but one day I heard some that was blended with classical music and have to admit it was great. I wonder if anyone has thought of blending rap with polka? .....

    If you ever played with a top notch Polka Band you learn quite fast how seriously the music really is! I had played with one top local Polka band quite a number of years ago as a fill in when their drummer was sick or whatever. Actually, I believe he had a severe drinking problem. All I have to say is the first time I brought my cocky little ace to one of their gigs thinking, heh ... piece of cake! Those guys put me in my place awfully quick! "You know how to play a Rhylander, right?" Ah, what? "How about Tango, Rumba, Waltz?" Ah, I never played them before just rock n roll. "Oh boy! The just follow me." That was the leader of the band. Nice guy and after my first gig he sent me to a drummer on the east side who was considered the best polka drummer around and he was! I learned everything I could from him and never took a cocky attitude again with style band I filled in with.
    OK, boring story ... On the bright side I'm still playing!
