I have a recording that doesn't have any major errors in it. It also doesn't have much personality, I'm definitely hoping for something with a bit more sparkle, but it's great to have *something* in the bag!

I don't know exactly how the 800 works, but try using channels above 4, I think 1-4 are reserved for the current Live Set. Also, remember to send Bank Change before Program Change (unless using General MIDI mode). It's a bit surprising if it doesn't

If you like the "sound" of them and you are "proud" to be able to play them, and others like the "sound" of them, keep improving the quality of your performance with them. If not, then forget them and move on to pieces

I play old "finished" pieces once a week, and only outside of practice. Practice time is reserved for working on new stuff. For me it's a happy balance.
