I've just installed this and I must say I like the new concept, allowing me, among other things, to combine instruments from GPO and JABB in the one instrument set. It would be nice if the new player came with some half-decent documentation though! I'm gradually figuring things out, but a couple of puzzles (at least) remain:
1 Of course it's great to be able to use all 16 MIDI channels instead of just 8 as previously. However, the player can in theory handle up to 64, and I can't see how to do this when using it as a plug-in in DP - is it possible, or will I just have use more instances if I want to go beyond 16?
2 This one's just a cosmetic oddity. Why do some of the instruments I load (eg, Flute Solo NV) have an orange background with the nice GPO graphic and 'GPO' for the instrument icon, and others (eg, Alto Flute Solo) have a plain grey background with no graphic and the blue 'new' icon?
And for that matter (2a, if you like), should I not be able to select my own instrument icons from the tools window? That doesn't seem to work.
