Looking forward to seeing what's under the tree, so until then…….. Jesu Joy of mans desiring.mp3 Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring has been in the archives for quite some time. I don't believe there is anyway to track down the origins of this MIDI MUSIC SYSTEM file. Who ever is responsible, I would like to express my gratitude. Although, I didn't use the file as is. The music seemed to be duplicated and the midi controls were changed for different MIDI equipment. These extra voices were deleted. The music repeated twice so a repeat loop was set up and the duplicated music deleted. There were some timing changes that made the music flow a little smoother. And because I was recording multiple tracks a Voice was created to contain the Tempo changes. The file size was reduced from 61 sectors to 19 sectors. TRACK06_atr.zip The MMS file used 5 voices. Voice 1 and 5 (highest and lowest notes) were played on the Atari. Voices 2, 3, and 4 were assigned the organ sound on the MIDIPLUS miniEngine.

Back to basics. I decided to do this track without using the MIDI setup. Track 5 was recorded using a 130XE running The Music Studio developed by Audio Light, Inc. and distributed by Activision. Two-Part Invention in D Minor.mp3 My first experience with Music Studio was on the ST. I saw the A8 version at a rock bottom price and added it to my collection. This isn't a review but let me say I was less then impressed and never got passed a cursory look before its abandonment. The attempt to use it for this track worked out much better. The music was easily entered onto the staff with a little forethought and didn't do any error correction that seemed to crash the system in the past. I still missed the mouse. Having two tempo settings did seem a bit restrictive and notes below C3 had to be transposed up an octave. Luckily, there were not any notes above C6. The organ sound was modified before recording and used for the left hand while the clarinet was used for the right hand. To do the multi track recording one patch had all its settings turned off. The Quite patch was then applied to silence one of the hands. The music and sound files are on the .atr.
