Other Information: Feel the power of General MIDI! :D
This is the result of nearly one year of work, 16 channels, 23 tracks, great help from fellow vgmusic'ers, and a whole load of insanity.
A gathering of all MIDI tricks and tweaks I know, and some I learned from other sequencers.

Thanks to Willow for his natural dissonance trick that gave birth to most SFX tracks.
Thanks to Pongball for her progressive modulation trick that adds up to the drill sound, and for her precious help on the piano chords.

Thanks to many people in #vgmusic for their feedback and cheering, that's a sequencer's fuel!

Now, for compatibility issues... this is a powerful MIDI, some devices or soundfonts might not stand it. Here's my testing
Developed with Creative's 8MB soundfont.
Good SF: Saphyr 2000, Reality, Creative's 8MB
Okay, but percussions broken:  Creative s/w synth device.
Okay, but minor clipping: Creative's 4MB, Fluid R3
Shouldn't be tried: Creative's 2MB, Cadenza, tgsf99se.
Setzer-'s SPC soundfont is lacking some instruments...
As for devices/SF not listed, try them, I haven't/couldn't test them.

With that sequenced, that's one more insane sequencing project completed. I can nearly rest in peace, now. :P
