I'd love to hear what you think of these. Send me a note by email, here in the comments or in a youtube comment!

The CD was done as a test of MMA! All the backgrounds, 100%, were done with MMA. All I had to do was write the melodies, play the saxophone, record and mix it all. The simple stuff :)
Made me feel pretty darn good knowing that this little test could bring such joy into someone's life!

- The AFTER option parser now permits option pairs in the command to execute properly.
- DefaultDrum now sets up solo/melody tracks as
well as drums. I've spent quite of time debugging this apparently simple fix. Please let me know if get it to crash!
- The plain old #5 for a major chord no longer works (well, it didn't before!). Please use (#5), + or aug.
As always, you can get this at:

All DRUM tracks share a common MIDI channel. This, for all practical purposes, means that all DRUM tracks will have the same VOICE or "drum kit''. In most cases, it is recommended that you use the VOICE command only in the generic track "Drum''. At this point, MMA doesn't enforce this recommendation.
Hopefully this will eliminate some confusion.

I had some discussions the other day with a fellow who was using MELODY tracks to create drum patterns. And, this actually makes perfect sense. He gets to use a sheet music-like notation instead of defining SEQUENCES. Of course, using the notation for Melody/Solo one loses the ease of using different velocities, repetitive patterns, etc.
But, it sure is cool to know that people are doing things completely different from anything I imagined. Let me know if you're breaking or bending the rules.

Yup, it's that easy.
So, I'm changing things so that #5 is replaced with (#5).
Want to make the change in your version? Just change '#5' to '(#5)' in line 494 of chordtable.py.
Of course, you can always use "Faug" or, even easier, F+ and get the same results.
Comments? Suggestions? Always appreciated!
